    Dealing with Serge has been a real pleasure. Taking delivery of two of his tonearms – the 9″ unipivot for a Lenco L75 and a 108 clone for my Garrard 301 – was equally pleasurable. The standard of workmanship is superb – they look, sound and feel great. In fact, I love them so much I’ve just ordered two more for a new turntable build based on a Lenco GL78.
    I highly recommend his work to other lovers of great workmanship and beautiful sound.

    Hello,
    I would like to thank Serge for his excellent craftsmanship and professionalism. His version of Gray 108 is “Huge”. I am impressed. I own already a nos Gray 108 from the 60’s and several clones, however Karmadon’s one is the only one that deserves the place beside my TD124 next to the original NOS Gray. Enjoy the music and peace ✌️!

    Serge, thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions about your lift mechanism for the Gray Research / Microtrak 303/306 tone arms. And thanks for taking the time to look at the photo I sent of my setup and suggesting a lift mechanism with integrated tone arm support! I didn’t see that on your site! That was a great solution! The build quality is superb on top of your customer service and delivery time. Wow.

    If you have a potential customer in the USA who needs to talk with a real customer regarding their experience, feel free to have them drop me a line.

    Thanks again!
