Reconstructing a Sugden turntable with a Pro-Ject Audio tonearm Posted on 12 Feb 11:34

Originally supplied as near wreck of random parts in an old cardboard box, we managed to completely restore this classic rim drive turntable, the "Sugden Connoisseur".  The customer provided the plinth and we were tasked with adding a Pro-Ject Audio tonearm and an Ortofon MC-1 Turbo moving coil cartridge.

In the end, we think it's a modern day classic and a nice alternative to the Garrard 301 and 401 rim drive turntables.
