SG-TPA HB Tonearm Bearing


The new Tri-Pivot Articulated (TPA) bearing is comprised of three precision silicon nitride balls captive in a precision machined Acetal ball retaining ring supporting the super precision machined stainless pivot. The pivot point centred between the silicon nitride balls provides flawless support and articulation.

SG-PTA HB Tonearm Tube & Head-shell

Roll wrapped carbon fibre is used in the construction of the arm tube. This provides higher strength and more homogenous fibre structure than a Pultruded or moulded equivalent.

Aluminium Bearing Yoke and Brass Pillar

The bearing pivot is structurally bonded to the precision machined aluminium alloy yoke. The assembly provides the support required for the arm tube, the main counterweight and the anti-skate mechanism.

Bearing Transit Screw & Counter Weight Locator

SG PTA HB tonearm transit screw will prevent any accidental damage to the precision Tri-pivot bearing during shipping. And the counterweight locator will ensure accurate repositioning of the counterweight and eliminate the need to setup the Tracking Weight & Azimuth again.

Arm/Cartridge Resonance Frequency & Fine Tracking Weight Adjustment 

An adjustable and de-coupled stainless ring allowed to move along the arm tube provides fine tracking weight adjustment.

SG-PTA HB Tonearm Pillar Holder and Clamp

Precision machined from Acetal the SG PTA HB Tonearm Pillar Holder and Clamp utilises a Tri-point fixing method to provide the tonearm/cartridge the required interface rigidly coupled to the record player.
