Somehow I’ve missed the announcement of the Gold Note stylus gauge. This seems like a really simple, no brainer tool for the easy setting of the cartridge tracking force. I’ll grab one in Munich and report back…

Gold Note writes: “The Stylus Gauge is a precise tool, extremely convenient to adjust easily the tracking force of all phono cartridges. Made in solid moulded stainless steel, achieves a very high grade of precision with a lower than 0.02 gram tolerance

It's offered in all Gold Note tone-arm and also available as spare part on demand
