Feickert Next Generation Cartridge Alignment Tool
An Essential Tool for Any Analog Lover - Can Be Used With Any Cartridge on Any Tonearm
The Feickert Next Generation Cartridge Alignment Tool is an invaluable tool for aligning the cartridge's path across the record. Proper alignment pays huge dividends in improved tracking, consistent tonal balance across the entire record, ultra-low distortion and increased cartridge longevity. If your cartridge is not properly aligned, you are not hearing the full potential of your entire analog system.
This next generation protractor is an improved version of our favorite alignment tool. Now, the Feickert offers Lofgren and Baerwald curves and in this new version, the Stevenson curve as well. Now with even more choices to reduce the distortion caused by a less-than-ideal tangential cartridge tracking. The Feickert Protractor is the best solution for accurately aligning your cartridge with a broad variety of tonearms. Accurate, compact, and in this Next Generation, more versatile and even easier to use.
"Feickert's kit is impressive, especially if you want something more than a cardboard or plastic template. Most impressive is the metal jig for measuring the pivot-to-spindle distances – nicely made, if industrial. It looks more complicated than it is; a thorough reading of the instructions will have you setting up cartridges in minutes…trust me: it will provide peace of mind for even the most truly neurotic of vinyl users."
– Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News
The Feickert Cartridge Alignment Tool allows correct adjustment of overhang and offset for virtually any cartridge on virtually any tonearm. Enormously flexible, the Feickert Cartridge Alignment Tool may be used on tonearms with an effective length between 8.6" and 17.7".
"I consider this a must-own tool for anyone who cares about proper tonearm setup and cartridge geometry. This beautifully manufactured precision device, even includes a strobe pattern…It's easy to use and as far as I'm concerned, simply the best. An essential tool for your vinyl toolbox and with proper care, will last a lifetime. Highly recommended."

"Enthusiasts with even moderately priced analog setups will find this protractor to be indispensable…No more guessing over crude paper or plastic overhang markers or mirrored devices; this thing works like a charm!"
