Selling a legendary Thorens TP16 mkI arm, originally installed on a TD125 mkII.
All original parts, including: - tonearm tube - wiring - counterweight - headshell - mounting collar
Condition is pretty good considering the age, the arm works fine and sounds as good as its reputation! $250 OBO.
I am not knowledgeable enough to assess the condition of internal bearings, they may benefit from cleaning/lubrication, but the arm moves easily and play records without a glitch, so nothing feels broken there. As you can see, the anti-skating is missing the silver knob and cover, but it rotates when turned, so it does not seem to affect operation.
The various other parts non described above, and showing on the pictures can be negotiated (indicative prices in parenthesis), preferably as part of the sale, but I will consider separating: - arm cueing device (comes with the long metal cable, that is missing a hook at one extremity) - $65 - arm rest/lock pillar - $50 - four flat round flywheels - $35 - various screws, knobs, ... - $35
I have done my best to describe the condition of the arm as I can see/test it, but considering the age and that I am not a Thorens expert, the arm is sold as is. Check my perfect feedback and buy with total confidence. Paypal adds 3%. Shipping is a flat $45 to lower 48 states. Thank you!
