garrard 301 and its' restorations


i was looking at a recent  you tube video of a restored garrard 301 in action. the platter motions while playing an lp were  very "wobbly" and bouncy ,like it was tracking a warped record or a spring in the suspension was "detuned"  is  this an optical illusion or is this normal to the idlers ?. i've never seen this on a vpi ,acoustic signature ,technics 1200 direct drive , kronos ultra high end etc .

I've seen this before on YouTube a while ago. Warped record not helped by the weight on the disk.

I have three idler drive tables. Garrard, EMT, and Dual.  The platters all run true with out wobble.  If you're thinking of getting an idler driven table, I recommend them.. Mine are used often (the Dual every day) without issues or problems.

What a waste of time and effort. The record is obviously warped. You should learn how to cut and paste so you can put a clickable link in your messages.
