                  Thanks! Thought so. Had one and used it on the JVC arm and maybe even the Linn Basik. But might be mistaken on the latter. Been a long time.

                    Some of these older arms are really quite good, many perform on par with today's offerings.....and many times at a much lower cost.

                            Yes agreed I've owned 2 incarnations of the Breuer--one of the true legends of the pivoted tonearm.

                            Incidentally Herr Breuer is still with us --I had nice letter from him a few months ago
