GARRARD 301 CREAM & OIL BEARING
FOR SALE = £1500.00 GBP

















































GARRARD 301 CREAM & OIL BEARING

Best Original Grade Garrard 301 cream & oil you'll see.

This is our fully serviced one, we got this turntable in 2002 with another 301 & the Quad II/22/tuners set in top grade that we got a top £1600 price for & it took other sellers over 10 years to match that.

Condition & originality is the thing. The 301 & others were fitted into a cabinet so in top grade. All is original. Paint is original with no touch ups, original chromed bolts with steel nuts as the brass nuts chewed. Plating underneath is all original.

The switch spark capacitor is original & still works right today showing how little used it was to not be on mains power to age it.

The black plates are top grade as you can see with original rivets.

The two lever switches are fuly intact, never cracked off & the speed adjust one similarly top grade.

The screw holes show minimal sign of use.

The mat actually is an original silver-grease era one that we had before preferring the less muddy sound of the oil 301. The mat has differences to the cream-oil one & we found it better to use with a velvet slip mat. Rubber is soft as that silver 301 was a nos one first used late 1960s & built into a cabinet we took this apart fully, beyond riveted parts in 2002.

The bearings in the motor were tight from little use.

The idler wheel is the original one & it's bearings were fine. The spindle bearing equally good & complete with the thrust pad. The 301 lower gasket often leaks so we got a NOS one about 6 years ago which is when we serviced the bearing with new oil & it's not leaked since.

All is still in great working condition, we only used it 2-3 times a year & decide to move it on now. Here's your chance to get perhaps the best grade Original & Serviced cream 301 there is.
