More Information


The Ortofon tracking force gauge is a simple budget tool for turntables that is used to determine the stylus tracking force.

The tracking force is the downward pressure that is applied by the weight of the tonearm through the cartridge stylus and onto the vinyl record. It is important to set the proper tracking force in order to maximize the playback performance and to reduce the risk of mistracking or causing excessive record wear. Check for the manufacturers recommended settings for your stylus tracking force. The Ortofon tracking force gauge tool is a small plastic pivot type scale that will accurately measure tracking force between 1.25 g and 4 g.

The Ortofon stylus force gauge is simple to use:

1. Very gently, rest the cartridge stylus (needle) into the grooved guide track at the desired tracking force marking.
2. Next, adjust the counter-weight or tonearm pressure dials until the Ortofon pivot scale is in balance. The scale on the force gauge is marked in gram.

Simple but works well, though it's not cheap for a piece of plastic. Audiovisual online, however, were very efficient.

Useful pack. Alignment protractor would be better with some user instructions. Looked up on the Ortofon website, but even though there are instructions there they could be in terms which are easier to understand. Ortofon talk about “aligning the cantilever” rather than the cartridge, and although I think I understand what they intend it could be clearer for non-techies who just want to install a new needle / cartridge.
