SME 3012 S2 TONE ARM – COMPLETE & IN LOVELY CONDITION Picture and Description:
SME 3012 S2 Tone arm - Lovely and highly sought after Split Counterweight version This is a highly sought after split counterweight SME 3012 S2 Tone arm with the long screen can and vertical plug-in connection, and of course the Metal Knife Edge Bearing. The serial number is 104xx. The condition of this early arm is super with beautiful silver castings and gleaming arm tube. The only real fault is a mark on top of the arm tube about 25mm from the base, see high resolution detailed photographs. It is of course fitted with the correct type raised S2 SME logo Headshell (with the slightly longer pins). The bearings are perfect and free in both vertical and horizontal action. The whole Counter / Rider weight assembly is supported correctly by the Elastic Coupler (see photo), the coupler having been replaced about 2 years ago. The secondary Rider weight which is so often missing from these non improved arms is also fitted. Ready to fit and enjoy with all parts that are so often missing from 3012s when they are offered on ebay: · Secondary Rider Weight – very rare and usually missing · Finger Lift · SME Phono Interconnect – In beautiful condition · Cartridge Screws and spacers · Allen Key for adjustment and set up – try getting one of these · Allen Key for adjusting lateral position · 4 x chrome Mounting Screws · Correct and original Handbook (but well used) · Original Mounting Template & original Alignment Gauge I have over 30 years of experience of the 3009 / 3012 and prior to offering this arm for sale, I have: · Checked the resistance and continuity of all the wiring including the Interconnect and earths, cleaned all contacts including the Arm tube/Headshell contact pins which incidentally are free and easy to move and spring back instantly. · Cleaned the Knife Edge bearing surfaces. · Changed the Elastic coupling and Base plate Grommets (about 2 years ago) If you are looking for a 3012 S2 you should not miss this appreciating asset. Early SME 3012 S2s this good are few and far between and are becoming rarer all the time.
