  • New Budget Table from Funk Firm!

    ‘and the music comes forth from Funk’s latest vinyl-spinner’

    The new GETT! from The Funk Firm brings a whole new level of performance to the budget-conscious vinyl-player market at $899.

    The new GETT! is based on the fundamental principles that Arthur Khoubesserian’s turntables are known for….’music first’ !

    The GETT! uses the foundation of the more expensive Flamenca, using a high-density acrylic-platter and Funks proven DC motor design with an O-ring rim drive, and Electronic speed control for accurate 33-1/3 and 45 rpm.

    The new F7 pickup arm is a further refinement of the thread-bearing design first introduced in the F6 pickup arm. This unique suspension design works like a hybrid uni-pivot bearing with easy adjustments for VTA, antiskate, and azimuth. Note: the F7 is available separately as an upgrade for other turntables with standard Rega geometry, all black at $599.

    The GETT is $899 w/Dust cover (not shown). Cartridge not included.

    Always liked the Funk Firm tables. I reviewed their original (pre vector) model several ago. Those who feel high mass is required won't be happy, but Arthur Khoubesserian’s designs over the years have proven that low mass is a valid approach too.

      Coming from a Rega and a Linn, I'm obviously on the low mass side of things, though hearing a friend's Triangle Art Signature (over 200 pounds) makes me think that's one of the best tables I've ever heard.
      When I reviewed the original Funk Firm table, it seemed the entire table (including arm, cartridge and platter) weighed less than just the platter of my Linn. Yet it was explosively dynamic and sounded really wonderful. Tables like the Funk Sapphire or Rega 10 really intrigue me.

    why does the description say rim drive, but the photo shows conventional belt drive?
