Well Tempered Labs

Filling up the silicone bath on the spectacular Well Tempered Labs Amadeus tonearm. There is absolutely no other turntable like it. Designed by rocket scientist William Firebaugh, the WTA sets a new standard in analog playback at an affordable price. Yes, it uses a golf ball as a bearing and four squash balls for feet. Hearing is believing! Come hear the Amadeus mk2 and Simplex turntables! You’ll hear your records like never before.

Aaron Franklin digs analog. It just tastes better!

When he’s not smoking the World’s best BBQ, Aaron likes to rock out on a SET (single ended triode) tube amp. He only had to wait 30 minutes to get into the shop yesterday! The lines outside of Whetstone are getting unruly. I suggest getting here at least two hours before I open and bring a cooler full of beer.
