KAB RC-1200 Record Clamp
This very light weight clamp applies controlled pressure to hold the record against the platter mat. Clamp will not mar record labels.Works on all 1200/1210's and any other spindle that measures 0.280". The RC-1200 features an internally threaded device that grabs on to the spindle reliably and as you push the clamp on, the record is held firm to the platter. Additionally, there is a high grip rubber pad on the 3" base and as you rotate the knob, this grippy rubber grabs the label holding everything firm and optimally damped. To remove it you simply pull off.

DC1200
Internal Voltage Regulator
KAB DC-1200 Internal Regulator For SL-1200
Our DC-1200 Replaces the internal stock 20V regulator. Improves regulation and reduces noise. Electronic transfer circuit allows use of an external PS (like our PS1200) and internal PS as backup. Short circuit proof and internally fused as well. Unlike any other regulator for the 1200, our DC-1200 also features a slow start up that ramps the voltage at the same speed as the original. This slow start is easier on the electronics and helps retain the 1200's sterling reliability. This is a good solution for those doing PS repairs too. Rather than troubleshoot a PS failure, just install the DC-1200.Read More... Only

STOCK FOOT
SL1200 Stock footers do a good job overall of isolation and offer an easy way to level the turntable.
Time proven design of spring loaded elastomer damped suspension with 6M threaded stud.

They do wear out over time though and can lose their "as new" height and when that happens, you can restore the lost height with our foot lifters. High Damping—Made of PVC, these bushings absorb vibration quickly and rebound less than their low-damping equivalents. Simply slip over threaded stud of stock footer.

KAB also has the threaded insert which goes into the rubber base. Sometimes in rough handling these pullout and go missing.

Tonearm Wand Liner If you drop the arm wand onto a table it will bounce several times. I tried cotton, then PVC lining, and yes even outer heatshrink tubing, and none would stop the arm from bouncing. Then I tried this unique 0.032"thin wall super soft rubber tubing. It weighs only 3 grams, and changes the the arm force setting by only one half gram. It slips easily into the arm wand and fits like a glove. And now, when you drop the arm on a table, it just stops dead, no bouncing. It really is quite remarkable.
If you are planning to rewire your arm, this is a must. Supplied cut to length for the 1200 arm wand. This comes standard with our 1200 rewire kit. It should be inserted from the rear of the arm tune so that it just clears the 2 mounting holes.

Aux Weight
For Heavy Cartridges


Brass Tonearm Weights
Heavy cartridges like Ortofon SPU require a more substantial Aux weight to use them in the 1200 Tonearm.
To determine the weight you need, use this formula:
(Cartridge weight + Headshell weight) ÷ 0.2 - 100.
Ex, 30 ÷ 0.20 - 100 = 50. This should achieve balance with the main counterweight set all the way back. Giving you about 4 grams of forward adjustment.

Technics Overhang Gauge
ORIGNAL OVERHANG TOOL
Easy cartridge alignment with the Technics overhang gauge. This sets the factory alignment which optimizes performance in the inside grooves. It is good to remember that when the Baerwald alignment was originally developed, there were only spherical stlyli and the highest recorded frequency was about 9Khz! That alignment was never envisioned for today's sophisticated styli and full range recordings. As was discovered in the mid 1970's, with the advent of CD-4 which had information extending to 45 Khz, a new alignment was required and that is where we find ourselves today.

Technics SL-1200 Strobe LED PCB
KAB has reproduced many of the Technics 1200 circuit boards. This is the Strobe LED board that mounts inside the strobe housing. It is slightly different in that a position for a dimmer resistor has been added. If you do not want to dim the lamps, just install a jumper wire across the 2 points shown in the picture. I find that some lamps, particularly blue and white can be too brite and adding 100 ohms can bring them back to a sane intensity.

The pitch control is serviced by desoldering the old one and re soldering the new one.
The pitch control is assembled in the following order: Control, Shading Cloth, Decorative Plate,
Felt Spacer and Knob. Shading cloth is peel and stick and attaches to underside of top plate. Our Green LED
matches original illumination. Blue LED comes with 2.2K Ohm resistor to match original Illumination.
D301 is the 5.1V Zener diode that often causes the pitch control to misbehave after warm up. Our Diode is overated compared to the stock diode.
Our new Repro Pitch PCB fits all versions except M5G. Our new board features new back side surface mounted controls for Gain and a new control for LED briteness. (Most LED mods are way too brite in our opinion. see service tips for alternate ways to take control of led briteness.)
