I will sell you my sorbane gel mat, but the original rega felt is better. I believe that aftermarket mats dull rega's.

Oracle was very proud of their mat for the Premier Mark IV, which I have. But a Ringmat made a major improvement. With a Rega, you should get the thinnest Ringmat, unless you add a VTA adjuster. At least with some cartridges, the thicker Ringmat(s) would throw the VTA off and hurt the sound. I have a Rega 25 too, and use a Ringmat on it with excellent results. Rega and Ringmat are a famous combo, I think.
In "Sam's Space", Aug. issue of Stereophile, Tellig reviews a new mat called "None-Felt" (no, that's not my misspelling--that's what the company calls it).
Anyhoo, it sells for about $30, but the same material can be obtained, probably in your hometown, for a small fraction
of their price, and you'll have enough material to make several mats. All you need is a pair of scissors. Plus, you can get it in black, blue, white, and green.
Contact me off-Forum and I'll give you the details if you're interested.
