I'm selling very rare MICRO SEIKI ST-10 gunmetal disc stabilizer in NEAR MINT CONDITION. I have never seen ST-10s in better condition than this particular unit! This one is probably unused or has been used very carefuly for a short time. I'm pretty sure it will be hard to find another in such a great shape. Unfortunately the original box is missing, otherwice i would call it NOS or MINT. If you're looking for clean ST-10 without scratches or some other damage then check the gallery, this is probably what you've been looking for. Dead stock unit, beautiful and very rare version from Japan!
Micro ST-10 is one of the best heavyweight disc stabilizers (record clamps) money can buy. Trust the engineers of the Micro Seiki company, this is truly high-end product.
WEIGHT ESTIMATE: ABOUT 1 KG according to the info i can find online.
But i think this is a Very Rare improved version which is a bit thinner than 3 previous units i owned over the years, so probably a bit lighter than 1kg.
Bottom plate is improved in this version (see the images).
Diameter: 79mm (bottom), 70mm (top)
Hight: 30mm (Look at the side view on the images)
Gunmetal is a type of bronze — an alloy of copper, tin and zinc. Proportions vary by source, but 88% copper, 8-10% tin and 2-4% zinc is an approximation. Originally used chiefly for making guns! The Micro Seiki line of gunmetal disc stabilizers and copper mats represents a combination of many years of research to release high fidelity components.
Mikro Seiki is a legendary Japanese manufacturer of high-end turntables and tonearms, founded in 1961. The build quality is outstanding compared to the esoteric modern crap that sells for much higher prices today. If you own direct drive turntable this clamp is a must have! I have not tried it on belt or idler drive, but on my DD turntables those ST-10s works efficiently.
I think it's from the early 80's. Micro Seiki ran into trouble in the late 90's and soon stopped making turntables and providing spares for their older products, which are very rare nowadays and highly regarded among audiophiles worldwide. The company still exists as a precision engineering workshop in Japan.
PLEASE REFER TO THE IMAGES, WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET!
this is dead stock unit, almost like new as you can see.
