December 2021 was a bit of a crazy month for us, and not just because of holiday season. We stepped into an industry controversy with our acetate longevity report
, and this kept us a bit busy. In addition to that, our tonearm
generated a lot of positive interest worldwide. Of course we're delighted it did, but the time spent dealing with enquiries was the time we didn't spend writing blog updates!
The craziness hasn't abated since. We knew that the supply chains are not in their best shape, but we have underestimated how badly everything is broken. A lot of effort goes into purchasing and negotiations with subcontractors, shippers, customs, etc... Hence the lack of new posts.
As we still have no time to write about anything "serious", I thought I'd give everyone a quick update of where we are with building a first batch of tonearms. Hope you might find it interesting!
