The Half Moon Heavy Weight was designed with two specifics in mind: A lower mass weight and a linear design for more stability and neutral balance. Giving the tonearm more neutral balance is key for more natural sounds.
The Half Moon Heavy Weight is made from solid brass and has a brushed finish. It is designed with a Delrin insert for more of a sonic fit, with a .5015 for a .500 end stub diameter. The Half Moon Heavy Weight also features a Teflon tipped screw so it does not scratch the end stub.
For the uni-pivot tonearms, what a breeze setting the azimuth with the Half Moon Heavy Weight is. Designed with geometry in mind, Expressimo Audio designed the Half Moon Heavy Weight so it had a small amount of weight movement, better linear design for more stability, and neutral balance. The steel weight can't even come close to the sound you get from the Brass Half Moon Heavy Weight. This is a must have and you should try one.
