finger lift

Postby FREDDY9 » Mon Aug 07, 2017 3:37 am

I am thinking about bying the finger lift from the vpi accessories and assemble it to the headshell of the JMW-9 arm.
How do I remove the original finger lift from the headshell ?

The JMW 9's finger lift is pressed fit and glued into the headshell. There is no sonic improvement by changing to the finger lift.

I would suspect that the newer finger lift is heavier and therefore the counterweight has to be adjusted. On the other hand, when lightly mounted on the arm the new finger lift permits a less dangerous way to move the cartridge for accurate alignment. 6 of one.....

My tonearm is the 10.5i on Classic 1. Since new I wasn't comfortable with the straight finger lift. I felt when brave enough is to remove it and knock one out myself out that would suit me. I was also perplexed at how the original was fitted and I reckoned it was nothing more than interference fit and super glued. I managed to remove it very carefully or maybe it was my good fortune it wasn't too difficult afterall. I knocked one out from a suitable piece of PC motherboard heat sink spring clip, polished it to a mirror finish and it looks good, feels good till today. The weight of the lift was 1 gram plus, nothing much.
