Garrard 401 Custom Vintage Turntable with SME 3009 Improved and New Sumiko Cartridge


Our latest SkyFi exclusive creation might just be our best looking ever. 

The high gloss black plinth base looks amazing as it contrasts the paintwork of the 401 against the piano gloss finish on the wood.  

The Garrard 401 was the sequel to the famed 301 and benefits from many improvements, including a better finish on components that extends its longevity and resistance to corrosion and wear. 

It has been serviced and brought up to current specifications, including full lubrication and replacement of any worn components.  From the look and quality of the paint finish, it doesn't look like it was used very much in the last 50 years.  There are no significant scratches or wear marks on the surface.

This 401 was custom fitted with an electronic strobe upgrade since none of these mechanisms were made for the European market.  It utilizes several LEDs to create a bright and super stable strobe effect.  We have also wired the strobe electronics to turn on with the power of the table for ultimate convenience.  

The tonearm is a SME 3009 Improved, which comes with the original box and accessories.  It also looks either new or just slightly used.  You will notice that the tonearm has not been screwed into the arm board in case you'd rather see another tonearm installed.  We have lots of options so drop us a note if you want to know more via

The included cartridge is a brand new Sumiko Songbird (High Output Version) just released into the market (and getting rave reviews), which sells standalone for $900.  

This cartridge is an excellent fit for this table, and will get you started with your vinyl collection right after setup without any extra fuss.
