    Stunning piece of work Mr artisan. It's exquisite, expect for…………………………………………..

    That ugly Rega arm clip (as effective as it is). It screams nasty and spoils the aesthetic beauty of the PU7. I swopped out the one on my PU7 for something else much cleaner looking.

    One of the nicest arm clips I've used over the years is the SME Series III clip, very sweet and clever piece of design. Surely your design team could fashion a larger version for the PU7?

    Best wishes.

    I always thought after reading David Price's prose in HFW that John had a massive factory hidden among the hills around Glasgow. I bet he has too

    Also I thought everyone needs a team of some description. I know I do

    Now I like those m8 ! Especially the thicker version with the Rega thread & mounting pips.

    The arm lift/cue quadrant is very sexy and will take the aesthetics of the PU7 to another level. I know it'll add cost but you just gotta do it J.

    Best wishes

    I may be wrong but John works solo from a home workshop. He's a true artisan with exceptional expertise and the highest levels of quality control.

    What I witnessed was far from humble m8!

    Though I never saw the factory DP wrote about, or was it Adam Smith?

    Best wishes.

    +1 to the metal arm clips I feel the plastic bit is the one remaining part on the PU7 that looks a bit naff. If you do use the plastic though the seam where it's molded can be sanded down so it's looks a bit smoother. But really the metal ones are nicer. Do you put thin felt inside them so they don't scratch the arm wand?

    I can guarantee the PU7 is an awesome arm, having used two versions over the last 8 years. The feel of the bearings when hand cueing is probably only equalled by an Ikida and for one of them you'd be looking a 5k plus. The PU7 really is a special arm!

    J7 is also only a phone call away and is one of the most (if not the most) knowledgeable artisans of this trade, being able to repair and improve arms from manufacturers still in existence or no longer trading and we thank the Lord for that.

    I'll be having one on order again soon and have already spoken to the guru on this. But shall I go for a chrome one again? Tough decisions ahead.

    You keep losing them or what?

    I think the matte black one is gorgeous but I'm thinking about it in the context of a Sondek which is an understated design on the whole.

    Recently a guy on a Facebook group paraded his Garrard 401 with a 12" PU7 in shiny black and gold highlights while that sounds like a garish combination on its own, in the context of the deck (all shiny black with golden knobs) it looks superb.

    J7's cover photo on Facebook is of that Garrard.

    But for me when the day comes it'll be matte black.
