If your turntable is not listed, don't worry. Turntable Basics has a wide selection of belts available, and we can almost always provide a suitable replacement belt based on your measurements of the original belt, or the belt's path on the turntable.
To measure the old belt, place it flat on a table and use a paperclip to mark your starting point. Then, using a ruler or yardstick, measure its complete length lying flat and unstretched. We're looking for the circumference, or the length all the way around the belt.
If the belt is missing, you can measure the belt's path with a piece of string tied in a slipknot. The belt will always take the shortest path around the Platter and motor spindle.
Based on how badly stretched the old belt is, deduct 3 to 5 percent from its length to determine the optimal new belt length. Also measure its width, and thickness if you can. Observe whether the old belt is flat, square-cut or an o-ring. O-ring and square cut belts do not stretch into place as much as flat belts will. Also see if there are any limitations on the belt's width, such as a narrow speed changer fork or motor spindle.
Then, order the belt closest to your measurements and mention in the notes section of the order form that it's for an unlisted turntable. Be sure to include the belt measurements and the turntable model number. We'll send out a few belts in the range of your measurements and let you decide which belt works best; just send back the others with a note when you're done, so that we can add a new and accurate listing to the website.
Exchanges are never a problem and additional shipping will not be charged. Turntable Basics has a wide variety of belts in stock. The complete list can be seen at http://www.turntablebasics.com/beltmodels.html
