Protect And Enhance Your Vinyl Collection
Removing dust on vinyl records with a dust sweeper is one of the most ceremonious things we do when playing vinyl. It is an emotional moment before the greatest experience is about to begin. However, it may sometimes be a bothering process to remove dust that persistently sticks on the records due to static. Traditionally, silicon rubber, felt or cork is used for a turntable sheet, because of its shock-absorbing properties. However, TEAC considers reducing static to be the most essential thing a turntable sheet can provide. After much testing, they found that "WASHI" was ideal material to perform this task.
- Anti-static WASHI paper for easy dust removal
- Unique watermark pattern of fiber on “Un-Ryu Shi”
- Moderate-weighted "stone-paper" for core material
- Reversible design to match atmosphere of the room
"WASHI" is a traditional Japanese paper made from the fibers of Mulberry trees. With natural durability, it’s been widely used for UKIYO-E printings and paper currency for centuries. Recently, it’s been re-discovered and used for stationary and interior fabrics for its beautiful design and excellent functionality. Particularly, "Un-Ryu Shi" is a unique type of WASHI made using special techniques which, showcasing the skill of the craftsman, can be seen in the characteristic pattern on the paper. By combining this WASHI with Stone-paper for core material, this turntable sheet gains mass and becomes uniformly flat. This allows it to restrict vibration, reducing static electricity, and preventing dust from accumulating. Making the TA-T30UN is the ultimate turntable sheet that provides ideal conditions for record playing at the highest dimension.
Reversible design, according to the atmosphere
"Un-Ryu Shi" which is characterized by beautiful watermark of the fiber, has been made for centuries at the foot of the SHIKOKU Mountains where fine quality Mulberry trees are produced. The TA-TS30UN employs the "Un-Ryu Shi" on both sides of the Stone-paper – one side is white, and another side is light gray, – gives different aspects on the platter of the turntable.
Durable Anti-warpage Stone-paper for Core Material
Anti-warpage or planarity is another essential issue for a turntable sheet to keep the stylus pressure equal. In order to satisfy this condition the TA-TS30UN employs synthetic "Stone-paper" made from 80% of calcium carbonate and 20% of high-density polyethylene for core material. The Stone-paper has higher specific weight – compare to conventional paper made from pulp, – which means it gives moderate weight for a thin turntable sheet, and it even keeps planarity under high humidity conditions.
