At our classic bestseller the TA-1000 we only use precision miniature bearings from the manufacturer SKF. The bearings are ultraprecisely adjusted during the production process. The bearings are added with minimal pre pressure for zero backlash to achieve a minimum friction and maximum stability. When it comes to arm tubes - 2 mutually exclusive conditions need to be combined. Maximum stiffness and low resonance achieved by internal damping. Very stiff materials are hard and therefore very susceptible to resonances. The solution is a custom made Dual carbon tube. The two pipes are joined by connecting elements. This creates a very rigid tube with a high internal damping and resonance.
