Strain Gauge

Jack @ the audio Beatnik just put up some kind words about the strain gauge.

In it he made note that Sao Win invented the strain gauge and some day I'll put the whole history as I understand it in a future post but for now the earliest example I have found is from 1946 and it also qualifies as possibly the most beautiful cartridge ever.


This is from the "Fabulous Capehart" which also had a Brook PP 2A3 amp and a Western Electric 728B so this beauty hung around with the right crowd.

  1. Love that cartridge but it looks like a coffin to me.
