Ortofon Stylus Pressure Gauge

The Ortofon tracking force gauge is a simple budget tool for turntables that is used to determine the stylus tracking force.

The tracking force is the downward pressure that is applied by the weight of the tonearm through the cartridge stylus and onto the vinyl record. It is important to set the proper tracking force in order to maximize the playback performance and to reduce the risk of mistracking or causing excessive record wear.

Check for the manufacturers recommended settings for your stylus tracking force. The Ortofon tracking force gauge tool is a small plastic pivot type scale that will accurately measure tracking force between 1.25 g and 4 g.

The Ortofon stylus force gauge is simple to use:

1. Very gently, rest the cartridge stylus (needle) into the grooved guide track at the desired tracking force marking.
2. Next, adjust the counter-weight or tonearm pressure dials until the Ortofon pivot scale is in balance. The scale on the force gauge is marked in gram.

Ortofon Pressure Gauge
Saturday, 16 January 2021  | 

An amazing little piece of kit which performs really well.It could be a little more robust but for the price, that's more a case of me being starry eyed rather than being realistic. It gave an accurate enough reading to make a considerable difference to my previous setting and a very perceptible sonic difference to the performance of my Technodec. Recommended especially for it's price and usability
