The Wand tonearm is available in three lengths: 9.5″, 10.3″ & 12″ and three specification levels, The Wand Classic, The Wand Plus and The Wand Master Series
In all cases the first thing you’ll notice is The Wand’s unusual looking large diameter carbon-fibre arm tube which is cut off at a sharp angle, hence effectively negating the need for a traditional headshell.
Instead, the cartridge bolts straight to the arm via a fixed metal block. The cartridge angle is fixed but with an adjustable overhang.
The 9” arm, being mounted at a pivot-to-spindle distance of 222mm, can be used as a drop-in replacement for Rega tonearms.
Design Build Listen also manufacture a range of adaptors for Lenco, Throens, SME and the Linn LP12. The ‘Master Series’ also features high quality sockets rather than a supplied arm cable, allowing the customer to choose their preferred audiophile lead.
