Message: What mat would you recommend for a VPI Classic 1 turntable? Do I need to adjust the arm with the mat on the platter?
Webmaster's reply: A full-size (295mm-diameter) Way Excellent II-2mm Turntable Mat is recommended for the VPI Classic. If VTA is already set for a 2mm mat, no adjustment would be necessary; otherwise you would want to adjust the VTA to accommodate the combined platter/mat thickness.
Message: Hello there,
I ended up buying one of your mats years back and now that I'm getting a table that uses one again (Rega RP10) I came back to look around for a replacement for the felt one.
I saw that you sold a grungebuster that I believe is what you recommend for those Rega platters. What is wrong with the regular Herbies ones on the RP10 and what is the difference in sound between the two on a Rega? If they were closer in price it would be a no brainer for me but the $100 difference I was wondering if you could please elaborate.
Webmaster's reply: Way Excellent II and grungebuster mats both do very well with the RP10. A full-size Way Excellent II-2mm is the default recommendation because of the lower price, though one or two customers who have auditioned both have expressed a preference for the grungebuster mat.

Message: Hey guys.
I have 2 Rega decks, RP8 [MONO] and RP10 [STEREO], both new models and
both being made of different materials Glass/Ceramic.
I would like to buy 2 mats BUT am in need of direction as to which models would be recommended.
Thanks in advance.
Webmaster's reply: A full-size Way Excellent II-2mm Turntable Mat with standard center hole should do very well for both.
Message: Hi Herbie,
I've got another question for ya, i'm having a hard time setting my tonearm height, i have a Tech SL 1210 M5g with a KAB Condorde Ortofon, i use the stock dj felt and the 1/8 stock rubber mat that came with it, tonearm height is set just bellow 0 and it still doesn't seem right, would you think it'd be a good idea if ordered a 5mm or even a 6mm herbie mat? thanks again.
Webmaster's reply: A 4mm mat is usually perfect for SL1210, though VTA usually comes close to bottoming out; a 5mm or 6mm mat would do just as well, sonically.

Webmaster's reply: Correct.
