Jelco SG-1 electronic stylus force gauge – a cut above the myryad of cheap devices available online.  Not only is it accurate to 0.01g, but it’s been designed so that the non-magnetic stainless steel measurement platform is at the correct height, eg as the stylus would normally be sitting on an LP, as you can see in the picture below which compares the SG-1 side by side with a cheap ‘eBay’ stylus force gauge.

Jelco SG-1 Stylus Gauge Compared With Cheap Alternative

Does this matter?  With some tonearms, very much so since Vertical Tracking Force (VTF) can vary quite noticeably with quite small variations in arm height, in relation to the LP surface.  It is important that the stylus pressure/force is measured at the same height above the platter as a regular LP.  Not all gauges get this right, but the SG-1 definitely does.

Given a ‘Recommended’ award in HiFi Choice magazine.
