Artemis Labs TA Series Tonearms

 

"Designed by Frank Schröder and made in the US, the TA-1 is a 9" tonearm with hybrid-ceramic bearings, polished kingwood armtube, and large brass counterweight. Vertical tracking force, stylus rake angle, antiskate, azimuth, and overhang are all adjustable. The TA-1 sounded poised, uncompressed, and sweet, with a treble range that was clean but free of undue emphasis or unnatural texture, said AD. "I already think of the Artemis as one of the most recommendable tonearms—of any length or type—I've had the pleasure of using," he concluded, recommending a Class A rating. (Stereophile Vol.36 No.2 Read Review Online)

 

 

The Schroder TA series of tonearms are manufactured by Artemis Labs in Southern California, USA under license from Frank Schroder, renowned tonearm designer.

 

One can now acquire a Schroder design tonearm that is more readily available, and sonically on par or even better than the best which Schroder makes himself, based on reports from clients and from our own experience.

 

There are 2 models being manufactured in the USA, the 9" TA-1 model, and the 12" TA-1L model. Both models share the same features but only differ in length, and consequently other mounting measurement parameters.  Both have different effective mass values, but both are medium-mass tonearms.

Specifications : Schroder TA-1L Tonearm (12") by Artemis Labs

 

  • Armwand Type : Ebony wood, glossy finish
  •  

  • Effective Length : 282mm
  •  

  • Pivot To Spindle Distance : 267.48mm
  •  

  • Overhang : 14.52mm
  •  

  • Effective Mass with supplied cartridge mounting plate : 18gr ( 23gr with optional heavy cartridge mounting plate, also supplied)
  •  

  • Mounting Hole : 24-25mm with single M6 tapped hole
  •  

  • Raised bearing technology - Ceramic hybrid bearings of the highest quality resulting in unprecedented low friction: < 2mg vertically, < 3,5mg horizontally
  •  

  • Type : Neutral balance arm, no change in VTF when altering VTA or record thickness
  •  

  • Internal magnetic damping for the horizontal movement
  •  

  • Frictionless, resonance free magnetic antiskating (for up to 2.3gr. VTF) - higher tracking forces can be compensated for by exchanging the antiskating screw (available upon request)
  • Wiring : cryogenics treated, low loss, high purity copper wiring (single run from cartridge clips to RCAs), 1m from arm to RCAs (longer lengths upon request)
  •  

  • All essential parameters adjustable : VTF, VTA, Overhang, Offset angle, Azimuth, Anti-skating
  •  

  • Double Counterweight - "Lower counterweight can be changed to an optional lighter or heavier cylinder, allowing for an increase or decrease of total counterweight mass without altering the overall mass distribution of the arm This way, even ultra light or very heavy cartridges can be used as long as their weight/compliance yields a fundamental arm cartridge resonance frequency of 8-12Hz."
