Recently one my friend from Tamilnadu got a Garrard 401 in excellent condition and requested me to make a multilayer plinth using Baltic birch plywood.

I started the project last week and it is in it's final stage.
Here some pics of the 'Project Garrard 401'.

Like my previous Garrard 301 plinth, I made twin tonearm design for 9" and 12" SME.
This is my own design. And it works beautifully .

Sir,
This plinth is made for my friend. Currently he has one SME 3009 mark II tonearm. No idea about the cartridge.

In my Garrard 401 I am using Ortopone RMG 309 tonearm with shure M3D cart. And I have many options too.
Regards
