    i just bought a pair of t62s , is there any way of making them feel heavy when kicking a tune in? when youre bout to kick a tune in they feel a bit light, is there anything i could stick underneath the slipmats? i tried a vinyl or 2 underneath but would prefer to have something different underneath

    cheers guys!:slayer:

    btw for the price you cant go wrong!

    Just to let you know though, the 'heavier' you have your tonearm set, the more wear and tear it will do to your vinyl

    not going to do the vinyl very much good being pressed against the platter.

    Just buy some thicker slipmats, the stanton slipmats I got with my ST8100s were about twice as thick as normal if you can get your hands on some
