1 x Genuine Technics 1200/1210 Sub Aux Weight

I’ve built up quite a collection over the years and it’s time to start getting rid of stuff. I’m in no desperate rush to sell however, so no offers please. 

These are used items so may be have a few blemishes these things pick up quickly through normal use, however I’ve seen a lot of these things and generally these are all in good condition and perfectly functioning. 

 

 

As you will see from my feedback and last few photos, I regularly sell Technics related items and have been a reliable eBayer since 2003. 

Please Note; due to the popular demand of this business and my other musical enterprises I now only dispatch items once a week and therefore it is likely to take a whole week before I dispatch your item. It will be worth the wait however.

Lid for Technics SL-1210 or SL-1200  MK2 – MK3D – MK5 – M5GThis is a high quality item – crafted byhand
The cover rests on 4 small rubber feet. I have kept their profile very discreet as I really wanted the cover to showcase the turntable. The cover then effectively acts both as protection and a display case for the fine piece of technology underneath. Please see my feedback and you’ll see there is not a disappointed customer out there and I’ve sold over 600.

About The Lids

 

 

So basically I’ve seen a lot of Technics over the years and getting sick and tired of Technics lids breaking so easily, I decided to design and make one myself… with the help of a friend in the plastics industry. 

 

 

I thought about the design long and hard and decided the primary need was to have a lid that was robust. Something that doesn’t scratch, crack, flex or shatter as easily as the original Technics lid. I also decided that it needed to be something that wasn’t over engineered, so that it doesn’t detract from the beauty of the iconic piece of technology it protects. 

 

 

Inspired by seeing a Technics turntable in the Science Museum, I opted for a design that also acts as a display cabinet… showcasing, rather than obscuring this seminal turntable. 

 

 

The lids are the same height, width and depth as the original Technics lids and therefore fit perfectly. 

 
 

The Design Process

 

 

We first made prototypes by Injection Moulding (how Technics original lids were made) and also by Vacuum Forming, but we didn’t feel the quality was there and therefore decided that handcrafting them was the only way to achieve true quality… so that’s what we’ve done 

 

 

These items are made by hand and therefore quality is guaranteed.

Come and View

 

 
 

Please see the photos, but it is recommended you view them in person before buying – because you get more of a sense of their overall cosmetic quality and can see them working before you buy. 

 

You’re more than welcome to view in person. 

 

I’m in Zone 2 London and 5 minutes walk from the Northern Line. 

 

 

 

 

 

Returns

 
 

 

I’m happy to offer returns if received back within 14 days of delivery.  

 

They must arrive back in the same condition that they left in, with the same boxes and polystyrene inserts – the returner is also responsible for the cost of outward postage and returning the item.
