KAB Strobe and Disc

Over the years I have used my KAB strobe with pretty much every line of turntable I have ever carried: Linn, Roksan, JA Michell, Palmer, Rega, Music Hall, AR, Ariston, CJ Walker, VPI, Clearaudio, Pink Triangle, Thorens, Connoisseur,  Goldring, Revolver, KM Labs...whew, I sure have carried a lot of turntables over the years!

    The KAB SpeedStrobe was designed to replace and improve upon older strobe designs that relied on power line frequency. We also wanted something that was easier to use and included the ability to actually measure small amounts of error. Not just a go - no - go - test.

    The KAB SpeedStrobe features a quartz locked illuminator with 99.99% accuracy. And since it is battery operated, it works everywhere. No need for 50 or 60 Hz versions. The Disc is silk screen printed on durable 20 mil PVC.

    Instead of hypnotic bars, the KAB SpeedStrobe features the actual speed numbers. In use, the desired speed is read directly from the disc. no searching for the right band. Covers 16.66, 33.33, 45, 70.59 - 90 RPM. By timing the drift of the display over one minute, accuracy can be measured to 0.03%

"Holy burning Bush!" I thought - the difference was profound. The small change in pitch was dramatic in its effect on the music.
The KAB Speed Strobe is intelligently designed, made with quality, so easy to use even I could figure it out, and sells for $100 which I think is a very fair price. Am I going to buy one? You bet!!

“It’s just fantastic,” iffused J.S. “It looks cool, and it’s a snap to perfectly set the speed.” Stereophile Recommended Component April 2003

The Speedstrobe is a flexible and durable 15 mil PVC plastic strobe disc. The Strobe Light is a small, rectangular, hand-held Quartz crystal strobe light, 16 times more accurate than line frequency. It’s a snap to check the speed of 33s, 45s, and 78s.

“You can check the speed of an old crank-up Victrola 78 RPM record player in a barn in the middle of no where without electricity in seconds with this easy-to-use gizmo. Great for garage sales and second-hand thrift stores. Audiophiles & technicians love it.”
