Empire 598 II Troubador // Belt Drive Turntable / Glass Dust Cover

SOLD , now part of a Private Collection

Another stunning Empire turntable. We've painstakingly sanded down and completely refinished the plinth and dust cover and replaced the original plastic with glass that has been sandblasted along the edges. The inside of the plinth has also been lined with dynamat to add more mass and reduce vibration transfer which has taken this table to a whole new level. Like most Troubadours of this era, there is some discoloration on the brass and anodized parts.

 

At some point a previous owner modified the top left corner of the table in a way we weren't able to restore without damaging the table. We decided to cover that area with one of our brass badges. Quite handsome, we think.
