KAB SUPER RECORD GRIP Mk2
RECORD HOLDING DEVICE
The newly redesigned KAB super record grip was
designed to replace and improve upon the PIG clamp originally supplied with the
Revolver brand turntables. This new design features a 2 peice precision molded
frame, spring rubber insert and UHMW polyethylene non marring contact
surface.This is especially useful on Rega brand turntables and others where
there is very little spindle to grab on to.
The KAB Super record grip reduces resonance and
acoustic vibration of the record itself, freeing the stylus to do its intended
job of tracing the groove. The result is better focus and detail to the
The Super record grip attaches quickly; by
turning with slight pressure, it "walks" down the spindle and meets the record
Note: For easier use, the center hole
can be lubricated with a dilluted solution of 5% Armor All® and alcohol,
swabbed with Qtip®.
The built-in bubble level shows turntable
level at a glance to within 1 degree of accuracy.

Spring reinforced rubber insert holds onto
the turntable spindle firmly.
The built in bubble level allows a quick
check of turntable level. A level turntable balances the forces of the needle
in the groove.
When the needle is resting in the record
groove, the entire record surface behaves as a microphone picking up vibrations
from the air and the turntable below. Damping the record surface reduces the
affect of these "added vibrations" to the needle's already difficult job of
reading the groove.
| GREAT FEATURES
- Easy To Use
- Better Bass
- More Detail &
- Quick Check Level
The really great features to take note of
with the KAB super record grip is the ease of use and cost
The super record grip represents great
value. Yet it is quite good at what it does and even has the added benefit of
showing level at a glance, each time you use it. Keeping with the KAB
philosophy that more is better, but it needn't cost more!
One issue to be
sensitive to is turntables with light floating spring suspensions. You will
have to push down some while applying the super record grip. It does not rely
on weight.(it only weighs 2 Oz) Be sure your turntable can "Bottom Out" safely.
If this is a concern, consult your turntable maker first.
[ In our opinion, if you can
"bottom out" safely, the super grip is a better solution still over clamps that
rely on weight, since they will change the operating height of your platter.
