Ortofon Stylus Pressure Gauge


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.

Stylus Tracking Force Gauge

This little pressure gauge is an easy way to make sure your tonearm is balanced properly, so your cartridge is getting enough pressure to keep it firmly in the groove without pushing down too hard on your records.

Get the balance right, and you’ll find your records sound more lively and detailed, with less distortion or skipping.

May The Force Be With You

Getting the balance right on your tonearm can make a world of difference to how your music sounds and how long your records last. It’s a fiddly process, and most of the time it gets lumped in the “too hard” basket.

Too much weight and the music will sound muddy, too light and the needle will miss important details and may even skip. Using the Ortofon Stylus Pressure Gauge, make sure you check the tracking force of your cartridge every 6 months or so to get the most out of your music.
