VPI Designer Prime JMW-10 Tonearm - Limited Edition Black Leather

cert15.jpgUpscale Audio is the only VPI dealer in California that is VPI Trained & Certified to handle all of your VPI needs!



This limited edition VPI designer turntable is hand-crafted by a local artisan leather workman in Cliffwood, New Jersy. The Designer model also includes a unique gunmetal finish on JMW-10 tonearm, platter, and motor. Only a handful were ever made. 

The Designer Prime Limited Edition is a response to customer requests for a leather Prime turntable; It's a limited run and only 10 were made in black leather. Upscale Audio was able to get ahold of only 3.
