Includes protective storage case
Users of vinyl are well aware of the importance of being able to accurately set their cartridge tracking down-force.
Failure to do this can result in anything from degraded sonic performance, through to mis-tracking and even damage to the record and stylus.
This highly accurate gauge is easy-to-use and sensibly priced. The unit will prove itself indispensible when requiring an absolute and consistent tracking force reference.
A 5.0gram calibration weight is included.

Having been impressed by the number of positive reviews for this stylus gauge and having compared it to Amazon's £10 offerings, I decided to purchase this more expensive model. The gauge arrived very quickly from Analogue Seduction and was the correct product. I then decided to implement the Origin Live tip to improve a Rega tonearm's playback, by turning the VTF arm dial to max beyond 3, Ie switching off the tonearm's VTF, and set the arm to the cartridges tracking force of 1.75 gms by moving the tonearm's tungsten weight on the P25 backwards and checking with the gauge which I had calibrated as per the simple instructions using the included 5gms weight. I got the VTF to 1.8 gms and left it at that. I played Sibelius' 5th Symphony and En Saga which I know well and they sounded better than ever suggesting to me at least that using a precise gauge is a far better bet than Rega's own dial-in VTF. Very pleased with the gauge even though I will only use it a few times when I change cartridges. Highly recommended.

A necessary tool at a good price, easy to use, well packaged, batteries included, 1 bad point, screw driver supplied roughly finished metal shards be careful when removing from packaging
Easy to set up, well packaged and presented. Very simple to use. Took all the guesswork out of ensuring my LP12/Nima/Goldring setup is tracking at precisely the correct downforce. The delivery from AS was very fast. Recommended unhesitatingly .
Great tooling for adjusting the tracking force of your cartridge. Easy to use, very precise and comes in a fine package. If you change your set up frequently or you're a tweaker this tool is a must have. And Analogue Seduction team: thanks for the quick and fine delivery.
Quality piece, Easy to calibrate & use.
Easy to use, solidly made stylus force gauge, that is accurate. Used to set up Zeta which has no 'dial in' down-force setting. Checked against mechanical balance and very accurate but much easier to use. Recommended
Self-explanatory: easy to use, and corrected my tracking force, which was off by a few miligrams.
For the price this item exudes quality, it is packed with care, pure quality and accuracy at this price it is quite remarkable. I'm truly overwhelmed. If you need quality,accuracy and value for money give Analogue Seduction a call.The service was quick and efficient highly recommended.

Absolute must as a purchase and fantastic item. Really well made too
This gauge inspires confidence from the moment you open the package. The unit comes in a sturdy padded box with small screw driver, 5g test weight and two AAA batteries pre-installed -- however the batteries should be removed from the unit before use and the protective cellophane wrappers removed. An instruction leaflet is included explaining the various operating modes. Easy to use and very accurate. I'm now able to fine tune my SME V and Lyra cartridge.
