SOLD - JBE Series 3 slate turntable - stunning condition
Here is a JBE Series 3 turntable. Main feature of this deck is the distinctive Welsh slate plinth and distinctive platter with its six aluminium discs. I have seen a few of these and the relatively soft slate plinth often suffers from chips and dings along its bevelled edges. That is not the case here. I have also gently refinished the top surface and re-oiled it. It looks absolutely stunning. The deck comes with its original Micro Seiki adjustable feet which enable you to level the deck accurately. It has its original lid which I have machine polished and is in terrific condition, with the exception of a crack along the top edge down one side. As such, it does not flex and is completely stable - not impacting the way the lid opens at all. It can be seen from the side, but not from the front or from above.
This unit came to me without its stand alone power supply and speed control unit. I have had a brand new control unit made, to similar design, layout and size to the originals. It works perfectly.
As with most JBE decks, this one is cut for an SME tonearm and I have supplied new mounting screws in the correct thread patten for the brass inserts.
I was keeping this deck for myself (I also have a rare JBE 3001, and have created the only website on JBE on the internet... just search 'JBE Turntables'). So I know a LOT about these decks and this one is possibly the best you'll find.
The deck weighs a lot, so collection would be preferred for obvious reasons. I also travel around the country quite a bit, so it may be possible to meet you or deliver it... please inquire before buying. Finally, I will post if absolutely necessary (but only within the UK). I may do this in two boxes and the cost reflects the time and cost of doing this.
