It’s a known problem to vinyl collectors across the world, warped records. Those not yet introduced to the phenomenon: a warped record is what happens to delicate vinyl after years of use and abuse and improper storage, making a record crooked rather than flat which renders it virtually impossible to listen to. The problem was already partly solved with the invention of an outer periphery record clamp made for modern turntables. It was not possible though to use it on the world’s most popular turntables, the Technics 1200 series, due to its size. That has now been changed though.
After launching a Kickstarter campaign to modify the record clamp to the dimensions of the SL1200 platter, the The campaign promises to “flatten warped records, reduce stylus resonance, and improve tone arm tracking resulting in a huge reduction of record distortion and more energy and dynamics on playback of vinyl.”
