Cornet tonearms

Cornet 1 and Cornet 2 tonearms designed by Tom Fletcher are the triumphant culmination of the Tom’s continuing development of the Space Arm.

Unipivot arms are usually designed with the pivot sitting in a silicone bath. The problem with this design is that the silicone bath takes quite a while to settle down so the sound of the arm changes as it plays. Many unipivots uses eccentric counter weights to insure proper azimuth.

Cornet’s unipivot design uses a new approach to maintain azimuth, along with a special material developed, with viscosity properties that does not flow and does not require “settling time”. A hi-tech carbon fibre tube with fibres along the length and not wrapped around the arm, greatly increasing the strength, resonance control and rigidity of the arm.

Cornet arms also have an unusual new headshell design. Meticulous attention to the material went in to the development, producing an arm more sonically in phase. The headshell also has no finger lift. These features ensure that the arm is properly balanced and no uncontrolled resonances run around the headshell.



“The improvements that Tom Fletcher made to his final design have translated in better-focused, more transparent, faster-paced sound.” – Michael Fremer, Stereophile
