Hello,

Twice now the cartridge clip has broke off. A friend tried fixing and thus the wire length has gotten shorter. This tonearm wand is identical to Audio Technica AT1100 model.

I think it needs a new complete wire for that run. ( It is White Clip )

I am just nnot sure if capable to do this project and I cant seem to find anyone in Nanaimo BC who will.

Has anyone done this rewire on this wand?

Thanks in advance

Mike

Get a couple of these dsub connectors at your local electronics store. Crimp one to the wire. Then you can put another on top of it to make it reach your cartridge. Stack as many as needed. This will get you running again till you figure a permanent fix. One may do it since they are longer than Cartridge tags.

I am a beginner at soldering and not too sure how to go about doing the soldering that's at the back of the wand that enters into the base of the tonearm. I haven't removed the screw that is there to see what is all involved but yes getting for new wires would be the way to go.

Why not write Gene at Take Five Audio and ask him how much he would charge you to do it?
It wouldn't cost much to ship it back and forth, and Gene is a real nice guy to deal with.

I did contact Gene and he said he was not familiar with this particular tonearm. He suggested that I find someone that had more knowledge about it so that is why I posted here

UPDATE:

Emailed Gene at Take Five Audio with pics of Tonearm Wand and he said it looked straight forward so I am mailing it off today.

Thanks everyone for suggestions.
