Braun sty­lus track­ing force gauge

This sty­lus track­ing force gauge was designed by Dieter Rams in 1963 for Braun, Frank­furt. A tool for cal­cu­lat­ing the ide­al bal­ance for a sty­lus on a record play­er. This is a very use­ful and absolute­ly nec­ces­sary tool for the sty­lus pres­sure adjust­ment of the turntable’s tone arm. To cal­i­brate the opti­mal sty­lus pres­sure was a com­mon task in the sev­en­ti­eth, because vinyl was the dom­i­nat­ing music medi­um at that time and turnta­bles were in every home. Here you have a scale in pond from 0 to 8. The Shure pick-up sys­tems in the Braun audio need a sty­lus pres­sure between 1.5 and 3.0. With this mechan­i­cal sty­lus track­ing force gauge you can deter­mine the actu­al pres­sure and by turn­ing the counter weight the tone arm can be pre­cise­ly bal­anced. For real Braun enthu­si­asts a must have. There are only a few items avail­able on the mar­ket in good con­di­tion. The orig­i­nal pack­age had a sim­ple sign ‘Ton­armwaage’ print­ed on its cov­er.
