In the early 60's, SME tone arms became more and more popular. The Thorens factory recognized that very quickly and offered the option to order new TD124's factory-equipped with SME tonearm's instead of standard arm's like BTD 12 and TP14 tone arms.
SME 3009 and 3012 tone arms are legendary and an excellent choice for your Thorens, they can be combined very well with various vintage or new production MM / MC pick up cartridges.
Today, SME tone arms are still popular and desired. The demand for vintage SME arm's is growing year by year. That's no surprise....It's probably one of the most popular arms ever made! Thus, SME's advertising slogan has been called for decades "the best pick up arm in the world" .... without exaggeration.
We're offering a variety of SME tone arms. Each arm has been carefully revised
and is ready to use immediately.
Matching tone arm boards with SME cut-out's can be found here.
