The time has finally come. After nearly two years of fun and hard work, we have designed and produced a ready-to-sell Garrard 301 update. 
The Garrard 301 has been technically improved on many points, while still retaining its classic look & feel.
Most importantly: without losing drive, power and dynamics… the sound character that makes the 301 so popular!
We carry out this update on your own Garrrard 301, provided it has the original serial number, engine and mechanism.

deck
The deck – as we call the base – is CNC machined from aluminum and finished in high-gloss black. There is room for an arm board and a stroboscope.
The design is more rigid, so vibrations and frequencies are better absorbed.
There is a conical mount for the bearing. This mounting method is seamless and ensures high torsional stiffness and perfect positioning of the platter. This makes the whole much more resistant to axial and radial loads.

The bearing of course is the spinning center of the record player …
The bearing structure is based on the classic Garrard 301 design with bearing housing, bushings and spindle.
We produced the characteristic conical shape of our bearing housing in nickel-plated cast iron. This material is extremely suitable because of its mass and vibration-absorbing properties.
Hidden deep in the bearing is a vibration absorber, our player’s best kept secret up till now.

The spindle has a coating that provides extremely little friction. As a result, there is less vibration, a constant running speed and therefore less wear on bearings and motor.
A very hard, scratch-resistant layer has been applied under the coating on the contact surface with the bushings, which guarantees a long service life.
The tight tolerance that we use between bearing and spindle requires a special oil. We found an extremely finely filtered oil, which is perfect!

motormount
We did something unique with the motor mount: it can be disconnected from the deck and mounted on the baseplate below, to fully detach the motor from the deck.
To divert unwanted vibrations away from the needle and element, the support is heavier than the aluminum original: cast iron, finished with a nickel coating.

lid
The baseplate closes the bottom of the plinth and carries the motor. Due to the design of the outside and the soft coating on the inside, it absorbs any motor vibrations.

The plinth is CNC machined from a solid block of aluminum, and you can feel this!
Because it is mainly the mass that offers many advantages here: “Higher mass lowers natural frequencies.”
The plinth is the support of the deck and disconnects the player from its environment by four acoustically insulating adjustable feet.
There is a damping disconnection between both plinth and deck and plinth and baseplate. 
We make two different versions of the platter.
1; this version has a beautiful full aluminum platter. This platter is much heavier: higher, wider and thicker. Mass is the magic word: the platter spins evenly and vibrates less.
2; this version has a beautiful full aluminum sub platter and a full bronze top platter. Mass is again the magic word: the platter spins evenly and vibrates.
