This is it: Dr. Feickert's next generation protractor! We welcome this improved version of a very effective tool. The parameters are now carried out to utilize not only Lofgren and Baerwald equations but also Stevenson. This provides even further choices to reduce the distortion that can be caused by a less-than-ideal tangential position of your cartridge while tracking the grooves of your records. This is the best solution for accurately aligning your cartridge with a wider variety of tonearms. It is accurate, compact, more versatile and even easier to use.

TAS "Must Have" Accessory
Enthusiasts with even moderately priced analog setups will find this protractor to be indispensable…No more guessing over crude paper or plastic overhang markers or mirrored devices; this thing works like a charm.

Hifi + Review of the Feickert Protractor
Okay, let's get this said early; I consider this a must-own tool for anyone who cares about proper tonearm setup and cartridge geometry. This beautifully manufactured precision device, the work of Dr. Chris Feickert, incorporates both Baerwald and Lofgren geometries, the two principle approaches to cartridge alignment – one on each side. It's also a universal device, handling arms of 200 to 440mm effective length! It's easy to use and as far as I'm concerned, simply the best. It is an essential tool for your vinyl toolbox and with proper care, will last a lifetime. Highly recommended.

Hifi News Review of the Feickert Protractor
Feickert's kit is impressive, especially if you want something more than a cardboard or plastic template. Most impressive is the metal jig for measuring the pivot-to-spindle distances – nicely made, if industrial…It looks more complicated than it is; a thorough reading of the instructions will have you setting up cartridges in minutes…trust me: it will provide peace of mind for even the most truly neurotic of vinyl users.
 

Product Description

The new Dr. Feickert Alignment Protractor NG (Next Generation) is a precision device that enables you to adjust cartridges and tonearms with an effective length from 8,6 up to 17,7 inches for correct overhang and offset.

The calculation of parameters are carefully carried out according Lofgren, Baerwald and Stevenson equations aiming at reduction of the overall RMS distortion level caused by deviations from the perfect linear tracking position of your cartridge.

The general geometrical correlation of a tracking device based on a fixed pivot point are well known since the fundamental publications of Baerwald and Lofgren back in the first half of the 20th century. The conclusion of both papers was that such a tracking device must have an angular offset with a defined overhang. The offset and the overhang vary with the effective length of the tonearm itself.

While tracking the record the stylus matches tangential position in the groove at two points – the inner and outer Null points (linear tracking position).

Preface

Dear customer, first of all let us thank you for your confidence in our products. The Protractor you hold in your hands is a precision device that enables you to adjust cartridges and tonearms with an effective length from 8,6 up to 17,7 inches for correct overhang and offest.

The calculation of parameters were carefully carried out according Lofgren’s (frontside) and Baerwald’s (backside) equations aiming in reduction of the overall RMS distortion level caused by deviations from the perfect linear tracking position of your cartridge. Please read this manual carefully to have full benefit from this unique tool. In terms of perfect azimuth calibration we reffer to our innovative software ADJUST+ (www.adjust-plus.com).

 

A little bit of theory

The general geometrical correlation of a tracking device based on a fixed pivot point are well known since the fundamental publications of Baerwald and Lofgren back in the first half of the 20th century. The conclusion of both papers was that such a tracking device must have an angular offset with a defined overhang. The offset and the overhang vary with the effective length of the tonearm itself.

While tracking the record the stylus matches tangential position in the groove in two points – the inner and outer Null points (linear tracking position).

"A truly outstanding design that we at Acoustic Sounds give our highest recommendation. This protractor system is the best we've found for aligning your cartridge with ultimate accuracy for tonearms with an effective length from 8.6 up to 17.7 inches. The calculation of parameters were carefully carried out according to Lofgren's equations aiming for reduction of the overall RMS distortion level caused by deviations from the ideal tangential position of your cartridge while tracking your records. The goal is to find a tracking geometry that suits LPs in a perfect way. Operation is simple, and the results are very rewarding."

NOTE: The spindle hole on the overhang disc with this tool has intentionally been cut small. This is to allow the tool to work with the smallest spindles without affording any unwanted "play." For larger spindles, simply enlarge the spindle hole using a tapered reamer.

"Just wanted to give you my report on the Feickert protractor. In my opinion, it is a must have item for anyone that is seriously into vinyl. This well made aluminum device makes it SO simple to set up the correct pivot point to spindle distance and it is almost impossible to get it wrong, at least with the Triplanar VII that I use. The set up tool that came with the Triplanar was off 4mm in this critical measurement! The white disc that is used in conjunction to set up the cartridge alignment is also easier and more accurate than the mirrored type I have used in the past. The marks to align the cartridge contrast much better on the white than on a mirrored surface." – Steve Dobbins, Feickert Protractor Owner
