What´s the Kokomo Kit Mk3?
The Kokomo has had an upgrade!; Compared to the already fantastic Mk II the thrustplate has been optimized for resonances and there is a new gasket with fixing screws!
The Kokomo kit is a new hydraulic design thrust plate for your Garrard 301 or 401. It’s a one piece design from bronze, that means the bottom plate and the dome with the bearing is made in one solid piece. The result is a perfect synergy of all rotating parts. Many years of research and development have created a bearing assembly that brings about vastly improved performance.
The construction is changed to a hydraulic design, the means the spindle axis runs on a oil film and has no mechanical contact to the thrust plate. It´s more high tech interpretation of the vintage 301 thrust plate.
