The experience of the special musical magic that vinyl is able to reproduce led us to develop the Wand Tonearm® and now The Wand Turntable™.

Launched in 2011 The Wand Tonearm picked up several Design Awards and numerous Five Star reviews around the world. The Wand Tonearm® represents a step change in tonearm design. This is not your grandmother’s ‘gramophone’. Its large diameter carbon-fibre arm tube makes it at least four times stiffer than ‘traditional’ arms. It is available as in 9.5in, 10.3in and 12in lengths and in three specification levels.
