Schick curved tonearm
Product Code: TSA001CU
The Thomas Schick curved tonearm is simply a curved version of Thomas’ standard tonearms, designed to match vintage tonearms of a similar geometry, like the EMT 997 and the Ortofon AB-309. It is only available in the equivalent of a 12-inch tonearm. All standard Schick finishes are available.
Special notes for users of Ortofon SPUs. You may need a heavier counterweight. The standard Schick accepts all GM-style Ortofon SPUs. By special request, we can supply a unit that accepts A-style Ortofon SPUs, the stubby, square style SPUs, whose geometry requires a different offset angle.

The Thomas Schick is one of our reference tonearms here at Cool Gales, providing, to our ears, an ideal blend of the detail and frequency extremes of very much higher-priced modern tonearms with the purity of tone and emotion of classic vintage tonearms.

“Orchestral music sounded just as big and substantial with the Schick tonearm in my system as with the EMT 997, and with LPs and 78s alike…. Records also sounded smoother, less grainy. And notes in the lowest two octaves were, for want of a better word, juicier: not necessarily weightier, but more colorful and more present…. For veteran listeners, the question is no longer Will this stand alongside my other, more expensive tonearms? but, rather, Do I really need more than this?” (Art Dudley, March 2010)
