In Hi-Fi+ Issue 146, Alan Sircom reviewed the MG-1 turntable, SG-1 arm, and PHONO-1 phono stage. He wrote, “The dynamic range on this turntable is phenomenal, bettered only by a few, and two of those in the Vertere range. This is one of the most confident vinyl front-ends you can buy, and not just ‘at the price’. The MG-1 turntable delivers much of what the better and best Vertere turntables can produce, the SG-1 arm is already a known good ‘un, and the PHONO-1 is one of the most naturally sounding phono stages I’ve heard in a long time.”

Vertere SG-1 Tonearm

Benefitting enormously from the work done in developing the Reference Tonearm, the Vertere SG-1 Tonearm provides unsurpassed performance in its class.
To achieve breath-taking musical performance, the Vertere SG-1 Tonearm utilises a combination of quality materials including roll-wrapped carbon-fibre, stainless steel, aluminium alloys and silicon nitride. Its unique bearing design and versatile anti-skate adjustment make it an ideal partner for any high-quality turntable.

Why SG-1 Tonearm?

SG-1 Tri-Point Articulated bearing eliminates loss of information.
Non-resonant, high-rigidity roll-wrapped carbon fibre arm tube.
Bias-curve adjustable anti-skate mechanism.
Decoupled stainless-steel main counterweight.
Adjustment ring for fine-tuning of tracking weight and arm/cartridge resonance control.

Vertere SG1 TPA Tonearm Bearing

SG-1 TPA Tonearm Bearing

The unique Tri Point Articulated (TPA) bearing is comprised of three precision silicon nitride balls and stainless pivot. The pivot point centred between the balls provides flawless support and articulation.

TPA eliminates bearing point ‘skating’ and allows the stylus to track the most delicate pieces of information that are typically lost with uni-pivot designs. This ensures accurate play back due to the strict adherence of the stylus to the record groove.

Vertere SG1 Tonearm Tube Headshell

SG-1 Tonearm Tube & Headshell

Roll wrapped carbon fibre is used in the construction of the arm tube. This provides higher strength and more homogenous fibre structure than a Pultruded or moulded equivalent.

The head-shell is machined from aluminium alloy and connected to the arm tube via structurally bonded alloy end insert. Naturally non-resonant and higher strength to weight ratio of this configuration provides the optimum cartridge platform.

Vertere SG1 Tonearm Aluminium Bearing Yoke Stainless Pillar

Aluminium Bearing Yoke & Stainless Pillar

The bearing pivot is structurally bonded to the aluminium alloy yoke. The yoke assembly provides the support required for the arm tube, the main counterweight and the anti-skate mechanism.

The pivot point and the counterweight centre of gravity are vertically positioned to be as low as possible. This in turn retains the tonearm in its most stable position.

Vertere Sg1 Tonearm Arm Cartridge Resonance Frequency

Arm/Cartridge Resonance Frequency & Fine Tracking Weight Adjustment 

An adjustable and de-coupled stainless ring allowed to move along the arm tube provides fine tracking weight adjustment.

The relative position of this ring and of the main counterweight can also be used to alter the arm/cartridge resonance frequency and optimise play back performance.

Vertere SG1 Tonearm Main Counterweight

SG-1 Tonearm Main Counterweight

Attention to detail is clearly seen in the polished stainless steel counterweight and peg.

Two pairs of silicone de-coupling rings are neatly sandwiched between three machined Acetal retainers to provide the necessary grip for location and the required isolation of the counterweight.

Vertere SG1 Tonearm Lift Lower Mechanism Plate Assembly

Tonearm Lift/Lower Mechanism Plate Assembly

Bespoke components are used for every part of the SG-1 Tonearm. These include its machined Acetal arm clip and polished stainless steel cueing device.

Vertere SG1 Tonearm Internal Wiring Connectors

Internal Wiring & Contact Connectors

Both the cartridge tags and the 5-pin connector pins are designed, machined and gold plated to our exact specifications for the SG-1 tonearm. The 5-pin connector main body is also machined form solid PTFE for its superior di-electric characteristics. There are two options available for the internal wiring of the SG-1 tonearm:
