Ensure Your Table is Running at the Correct Speed
The KAB Speed Strobe is our best-selling speed strobe, and for good reason. It’s simple to use and dead-on accurate! It comes with its own battery-operated, hand held strobe light with precision quartz-controlled circuit; the speed is shown on the disc itself. No analog set-up is complete without one of these essential accessories! This is the one to own!
The KAB SpeedStrobe was designed to replace and improve upon older strobe designs that relied on power line frequency. KAB also wanted something that was easier to use and included the ability to actually measure small amounts of error. The KAB SpeedStrobe features a quartz locked illuminator with 99.99% accuracy. Since its battery operated, it works everywhere. No need for 50 or 60 Hz versions. The Disc is silk screen printed on durable 20 mil PVC.
Instead of hypnotic bars, the SpeedStrobe features the actual speed numbers. In use, the desired speed is read directly from the disc. No searching for the right band. Covers 16, 33, 45, 70 - 90 RPM. By timing the drift of the display over one minute, accuracy can be measured to 0.03%.
The SpeedStrobe is unique in 2 ways. First, it does not rely on line frequency like other strobe discs. Second, conventional strobe discs use a series of hypnotic bars that 'freeze' in motion when the turntable is at the correct speed. That’s fine for a turntable that can adjust its speed. But have you ever tried to time those marks so you can measure accuracy? It is nearly impossible. The SpeedStrobe displays large easy to read numbers. It is very easy to time the drift of this display. This lets you measure fixed speed turntables and determine their accuracy.
