    Default Project Carbon Turntable in Blue

    I am finally getting around to selling the Project Debut Carbon I purchased new about 2 years ago.
    It has been used for a maximum of possibly 40-50 hrs , and maybe less . It comes with the Ortofon Red cart ,and is quite minty !
    I see they are 350 now new ,so I would like to ask 150 ,NO offers please
    ( I have 100% of the original packaging ,and am conversant with what needs protection ), and you organise your own courier , or I can meet up near the M6 corridor , if needs be , just ask me for details and we can work summat out . Dont mind if you get an AOS member closer to me either if it helps you to deliver it on ,and 100% safeguard it !





    I cant take a picture of the stylus close up , (I cant get my usb microscope to work properly ) but its in top order !!

    The reason I didnt stick with it , is because I am a headshell addict and my collection of old carts and headshells gets passed around the vintage Japanese TT's I have ,and that is what keeps me happy . Whereas ,despite the Carbon sounding super and quiet , I dont like the fact I cant easily swap the cart out ,when the mood takes !

    A nice starter table for anyone wanting a newer TT ,and all it really needs possibly is an Ortofon Blue cart to make it look the bees knees

    PS the home made Bib record cleaning arm and the leg off my aunties chair is not included , or the DIY weight I made that was put on there to take the picture , or the Dalek !!

    That looks a great buy for someone wanting to start out with vinyl.

    There appears to be a Dalek using it at the moment. Will he mind?

    He's a good Dalek though Geoff, he's a bass player. I've had one of these decks and they are very good, this is a real bargain for someone. GLWS Anto.

    Wow, a Squire bass playing Dalek. Bloody brilliant. All the best with the sale. With the current vinyl playing rush it must surely sell..?

    Probably too cheap , but thats what I thought !! The bass ,I have to admit ,came from my nephew ,who was going to throw it out
    The dalek has struggled to find the right notes ,until the Doctor came round and adjusted his plunger , last week!

    Just for people that want to know the dimensions of the box - 40 x 25 x 50 and 8 kgs in weight !!
    I am not that keen on sending it via courier really ,but will if thats what it takes to sell !! I had thought of double boxing it to be 100 % safe , but thats up to the buyer (if they really want me too!!)
    It might just mean the dimensions get a tad larger !!

    Work on the actual box it came to me in and any different in requirements ,let me know !
    Thanks
