    Default Thorens TD124 - Ferruccio Hoods: - may be of interest

    I know what you are thinking and no this isn't a cheap ploy for something smutty.

    I'm not sure if this link is allowed as it points to another forum and understand if you take it down. No offence intended.

    As a happy owner of a TD124 myself I often stray onto other forums or I used to when I was restoring my TT.
    I recently noticed an interesting photo of an acrylic cover for this TT which I thought was rather smart and wondered if any owners here had either seen these or would be interested.

    As I have a cover already I'll probably stick with mine but should I feel especially 'flush' at some future time I may just treat myself.

    Hope you like them

    I was surprised how reasonably priced they are and me being a tight arse too. Really very nice.

    Fantastic looking cover and quite reasonably priced. Only thing is, why would anyone buy a dust cover with an enormous cut out at the back which will just allow all the dust in? So as a product the entire cover remains good for older eg. Spring balanced arms, but the cut out one is not so useful for arms with larger counterweights, which rather reduces the market.

    Good point James,

    Given the 'Swing out Sister' factor - even my fairly compact AS212 would likely foul the solid cover and require the cut out version. It's a lot of money to let dust in !
