VPI has several years experience designing and building 12″ arms and knows what makes them work and what doesn’t. The time has come for VPI to incorporate all its knowledge of tonearm construction and produced a state of the art design. The JMW-12 Tonearm is the end result of a search for a tonearm that meets the highest standards!

The VPI JMW-12 Tonearm features a machined tapered arm tube for minimum standing waves in the arm wand and maximum rigidity with low mass with a fully adjustable in all parameters to optimize results from any cartridge. It also features a totally rigid mounting system that literally becomes part of the turntable chassis, universal cartridge compatibility with stylus resonances in the 9 to 11 HZ range and adjustable fluid damping for optimal cartridge compatibility.
