    Sorry but I cannot answer your question though I think VPI would be happy to tell you. In the mean time and not to hijack your thread you could have a look at this blog.
    http://twogoodears.blogspot.com/2010...ord-clamp.html I would think that while Stephano used 350 grams of 1mm lead shot that 350 grams of steel shot or even sand if the bag does not get too large would work. Easy and fun to play with while you are finding out about the VPI weight. Regards Moray James.

    But I noted he's not using an outer ring clamp. That changes things a bit too.

    The record weight I'm using is the VPI HRX Record Center Weight. 1lb. 11oz. $149.00 from Elusive Disc. Out of stock.

    I'm still considering the TTWeights 600 gram TT Outer Ring...

    Personally, I would be hard pressed to use the VPI centerweight without the peripheral ring - reason being, depending on your VPI platter, the center weight alone can raise the outter edge of old thin LPs 2-3mm, easily... Happened to me a number of times, then finally bought the outer ring too.

    Jay,

    While you can experiment with different clamps (TTwts, Hi Fi Tuning), you certainly can't go wrong with the VPI.

    Myles,
    I already have the VPI screw down clamp that came with my S.M. Is there another that improvers the sound more?
