VPI's Stainless Steel Record Clamp helps couple your record to the platter of your turntable for better sound quality. It helps with playback of slightly warped records, too. The top half is made of attractive stainless steel for added mass and resonance control. The base is made of Delrin, which is a great material for coupling to your album, plus the use of two dissimilar materials (stainless steel + Delrin) contributes to the resonance control. The coupling mechanism is manufactured from stainless steel. The Stainless Steel Record Clamp is compatible with all VPI turntables with threaded spindles
VPI's newest record clamp makes several key improvements over the previous generation of clamps. First, the adjustable knob and upper half of the clamp is machined from solid stainless steel. By using solid stainless steel, the clamp adds even more mass and mechanical damping to the table. Since the stainless steel knob is more dense this translates to even better warp reduction when playing records. Also, the coupling mechanism is now also machined from stainless steel instead of Delrin to facilitate much more secure and precise coupling to the record and spindle.
