For Immediate Press Release:
VPI Industries is proud to debut the production models of the VPI JMW Fatboy tonearms at Axpona 2018. Both Unipivot and Gimbal versions will be on display and are available choices for all VPI turntables. In-addition can easily be mounted with other turntable brands. The availability of Unipivot and Gimbal options is to provide arm option styles for all listeners.
The Fatboy adds a new level adjustment to the VPI type tonearm. On the Unipivot flavor you can adjust azimuth using the the side arm tube setscrews, the adjustable side weights, or the included dual pivot. By having the combination of a 3D printed tube with the fine machined back stock it creates the perfect balance of precision and balance for your tonearm. The fine adjustable counter weight makes cartridge set-up easier than ever.
