OEM MOTOR SHOCK MOUNTS FOR RUSSCO / QRK BROADCAST TURNTABLES
Motor shock mounts are specifically designed to reduce the transfer of motor hum to the pick-up cartridge. Over time, rubber hardens, allowing rumble in your audio. In time, old mounts will give out completely, tearing, allowing the motor to fall away from the frame.
For a limited time, we are offering a limited quantity of brand new OEM shock mounts. These mounts are made in the USA, using US material. This is the original part. Not a knock-off reproduction.
Shock mounts will be sold in sets of three (3); required for each turntable and priced afforably for broadcast turntable enthusiasts.
These shock mounts are specifically designed for the Russco Studio Pro, Cue Master and some QRK models. Idendtifying the correct part can be seen on the original part. Most will read like 100PL-2.
Originally, these turntables were equipped with three mounts; two being a 100PL-2 and the other, 100PL-A. The 100PL-A is no longer available. Replacing all three with the 100PDL-2 will functin perfectly, further decreasing vibration from the original design.
Mounts came in two shapes; square and diamond. The mounts being sold here are diamond shape. Either provide the same results.
This is the only web site offering the OEM shock mount and priced far below other offers that may pop up from time to time. Our mounts are OEM, USA made, the same ones used in the original manufacturing of turntables.
Sales wil be limited to Lower USA states only. If you reside outside the USA, you will have to have a USA address. No exceptions.
Payment is PayPal only.
Russell C. Friend, founder of Russco Electronics, passed away on December 7, 2011 at the age of 91. An innovative engineer and businessman, Russ will be best remembered for the products produced by his company in Clovis, California from the late-1950's until he sold the company in the early-1990's. The number of hit records that were first played on Russco turntables is immeasurable. The amazing simplicity of design, combined with bullet-proof ruggedness, has allowed many of these machines to continue to run some 50 years after their manufacture. The Russco product line expanded to include nearly every item needed in a broadcast studio: turntables, phono pre-amps, tonearms, mixing consoles, and many other tools of the broadcast and audio production trade.
In the last years of his life, Russ was an invaluable source of information and inspiration to me, and I will cherish the many telephone conversations and personal visits.
MEET RUSS FRIEND
The creative genious of many professional broadcast products, but mostly known for the famous Russco turntable. Hundreds of US, AM radio stations pounded the air waves in the 60's with a pair of Russco turntables. Your favorite oldie was probably spun on one of these.
Dan Zurcher was an engineer for Russco, designing and building many of the Russco products, including the final turntable model, RT-700 in 1985.
