Thomas Schick tonearms offer high performance and exceptional build quality at a reasonable price.

Thomas Schick

Designed visually to pay homage to the tonearms of the past, Thomas Schick tonearms offer design and performance features that are far beyond those of the tonearms of the past, and that rival many tonearms of today that are far more expensive.

Considered by many to be an innovative mechanical designer, Thomas Schick has taken extensive steps to ensure optimal performance of his tonearm and headshell designs.  The Schick tonearm models feature high precision ball bearings enclosed in bearing races for vertical and horizontal movement.  Such sealed bearing designs eliminate such problems as wander that is common with point bearings and play inherent with knife edge bearings. 

Using sealed ball bearings therefore reduces resonances and friction.  And since this sort of bearing arrangement is designed to tolerances that allow for high speed use, with care they will last more than a lifetime.

Schick tonearms also employ three different damping materials in nine separate sections of the tonearm to control resonant energy.  This along with the choices of metals and the way those metals are coupled results in a nearly resonant-free design.

There are both 9.6 inch and 12.5 inch versions of the Thomas Schick tonearm.  Both are of the same design and built of the same materials.  The 12.5 inch version will accommodate nearly any very low compliance phono cartridge or SPU pickup head (SPU may require optional heavier counterweight).

The 9.6 inch version will accommodate phono cartridges with a compliance all the way up to 22 µm/mN that weigh 6 grams or more.

We offer the Thomas Schick tonearms as an option on the excellent GEM Dandy turntables that we sell.  Both lengths are excellent choices depending upon the phono cartridge that you intend to use.  Please call or email us to discuss your particular situation. 

Schick tonearms can also be mounted to most existing turntables.
