Nice, wondering whether this would go well with the TD124 I’ve just bought, SME 3009 S2 arm?

May need the larger counter weight

I’ve used it on my TD-124 but not with a 3009.

As Matt says, you may need the heavier counterweight.

Buy lebowski’s package for the counterweight , td124’s are all different anyway .
