Product Details

Shure SFG-2 Turntable Phono Cartridge Tracking Force Gauge
The Shure SFG-2 stylus tracking force gauge is the industry standard. This simple-to-use measuring device was developed to give listeners a way to insure against the problems caused by improper tracking force settings, which include mistracking, excessive record and tip wear, and poor sound reproduction. This gauge is a highly accurate beam balance instrument designed to measure the actual downward force exerted by a stylus on a record over the range of 0.5 to 3.0 grams. Each gauge is individually calibrated, and displays readings in 0.05 gram increments in order to provide a precise measurement of stylus tracking force.

Shure SFG-2 Turntable Phono Cartridge Tracking Force Gauge
Shure SFG-2 Turntable Phono Cartridge Tracking Force Gauge is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS GREAT!I bought this as I prefer old school technology sometimes! No batteries, no hassles. Yes....it's tedious, but NOT too much so. It is fool proof really. Sometimes the basics can't be beat! If you are into vinyl, more than likely you are into the nostalgia that goes with it. From the reviews I've read, AND my own experiences, it is plenty accurate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from decentWanted something besides a digital because the last one didn't last and had doubtful accuracy. This little device is accurate and simple. Showed one turntable to be spot on with it's weighted dial and another to be off by .2 grams. comes with a case for storage and you're good for life. Well worth the $.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have!Just purchased a new Grado cartridge & stylus for my old Sanyo turntable. The new stylus required it to have 1.5 grams of tracking force on the record. You can buy a cheap electronic scale for around $10 but they have a multitude of problems and are not reliable in my opinion. The Sure is a balance beam scale that is really well made and easy to set up. The tone arms is easy to calibrate using this system. You must weigh the tone arm to achieve the correct tracking force or you run the risk of ruining your new stylus or your vinyl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from more precise than I expectedAs a chemist, I have the resources to evaluate the accuracy of this product in a most scientific way. I found it to be well within confidence limits desired for a product intended to measure stylus force.
