MMC-SP adapter kit

Picture by Nick Jarman


A set of parts to allow an integrated pickup (eg MMC 3000 or MMC 4000) to be fitted to a Beogram designed for one of the round SP series models. Because parts of the arm had to be removed, the conversion could not be reversed easily. The integrated pickups were much lighter than the earlier types, so to make it possible to balance the arm, a brass weight was included that fitted behind the pickup socket. The cost of the integrated pickups, along with the difficulty of having the parts fitted to Beogram, meant that the conversion was not very popular, and converted Beograms are seldom, if ever, seen.
