I recently acquired a restored Garrard 301 turntable that was in need of further
work upon arrival here, so I contacted and subsequently sent the unit up
to Woodsong Audio.
Owner Chris Harban took TOTAL control of the
situation and completely fixed all associated problems, and did so while
fully communicating with me the during the entire process. He was
thorough, patient, and as helpful to my end (with my questions, "how
to's, why's", etc) as anyone could be. And the finished product now
operates as it should. There were no hidden tricks, gray areas left
undefined, nor any other associated negative entities at any time during
the process. Nothing but proper communication with realistic
As for the 301 turntable, a new idler wheel is now
in place, as is one of his machined eddy discs. And he installed one of
his "torlon" lined bearing housings, designed to increase dynamics,
lower the noise floor, etc, and then bench tested the turntable in full
prior to sending it on to me. All in all, it works now "as new", and I
could not be happier.
I've been in the hobby for decades, and I've
met just about every type of personality you can imagine, and i gotta
say, Chris is one of thee nicest, most thorough, most assured people
I've ever dealt with, and I have absolutely zero hesitation in
recommending him, and his products, to anyone, under any circumstance.
