Our pricing for this product is the "MAP Pricing." This means that the prices shown here are the "minimum advertised prices" permitted by the manufacturer. Because these are already the lowest prices possible, the additional incentives usually available under "Frequent Flyer" program do not apply to this item.
Designed for synergistic interaction with matless acrylic-platter turntables like VPI Scout. Although manufacturers generally recommend these turntables be used without a mat, our customers have found the grungebuster Turntable Mat brings out significant sonic improvements.
Comparative tesing with various types of turntables have shown that Herbie's hand-made, super-fidelity grungebuster mat is as sonically natural as the highly acclaimed Way Excellent II Turntable Mat, as quick as Boston Audio's graphite mat, as responsive as Mystic Mat -- ascending to a new plateau of analog musical playback, unsurpassed by anything else.
Comprised of an extra-thick, full-size circle of Herbie's grungebuster isolation material and twenty-four ultra-thin grungebuster Dots, the grungebuster Turntable Mat sticks like magic to your turntable platter, while textured Dots allow records to lift right off. With drastic reduction of microphonic vibrations, with the vinyl held "motionless" in its rotation, with lateral slippage nonexistent, your records will achieve a new level of superior playback. (Works superbly with non-acrylic platters also.)
Overall mat thickness: 1.6mm, diameter: 11 1/2" (29.2cm), weight: 136.5 grams (4.8 oz.).
