A very clean & tidy sample of the SME 3012 Series 2 tone arm.

This arm is the very first type of 3012 after the series 1. It has the push fit headshell socket connector, early serial no badge and ‘polo’ rear counter weight. The main counter weight is 125g which I think is the heavier version - It also has the solid headshell. If I didn't already use and enjoy a 3012 I'd be keeping this sample as it's in particularly good order. A perfect partner for a Garrard 301/401, Thorens 124 or similar. Personally, I prefer the sound of these to that of my Series V.

It does include the bias weight and thread that isn't shown in these pics. It will also come with the original owner's manual.
