Tacco MK II

The SCHEU Tacco MK II is our legendary top model with the conical wooden tonearm wand made of prestigious wood – either thuja cedar or amboina pine.

Apart from ensuring maintenance of all the familiar geometric parameters, the development of the equipment also concentrated on fastidious choice of materials. Thus the actual bearing/counterweight unit is made of tungsten, allowing not only a compact design concentrating all the free-to move mass into a condensed space but also the effective suppression of resonance inside the bearing unit thanks to the high density of the metal. This method of construction means that all kinds of stored energy can be eliminated quickly and effectively.

The Tacco tonearm has a unipivot bearing. The tip of the bearing is a ruby sphere at the end of a hard metal rod. The bearing recess is set into the bearing block and is made of a leuko-(white) sapphire. This arrangement leads to extremely little internal friction and, in addition, the contact surface is well-defined, eliminating any shifting of the point of the bearing.

The Tacco is currently available as a 9-inch and a 12-inch variant.

The Tacco II arm is an excellent arm … capable of extracting a massive amount of information off the groove, presenting a platform as neutral across the mid and top as it is deep at the bottom.
