I have noticed that the JA Michell clamp in my turntable does not render records flat. The felt washer provided with the clamp is too thick. JA Michell does not provide any other sizes. Have any of you encountered this situation? Will this significantly affect record playback and/or wear? How did you fix this?
I do encounter the same problem too with my GyroDec MK IV. Some of my vinyls aren't 100% flat and certainly not firmly attached onto the surface. What I do instead I place the felt washer on the top of record and then clamp.
