2G Tonearm

A brilliantly engineered and versatile tonearm

2 Years




The Reed 2G is tonearm which merges the best features of the 2A and the3Q tonearms and adds a few new ones.

2G is very easily adjusted and can be mounted to virtually any turntable with or without an adapter.

As other Reed tonearms, the 2G features 0.2 mm precision VTA adjustment and the tonearm’s height can be adjusted from 28 mm to 48 mm.

The tonearm has a cardanic bearing system: the vertical axis has thrust rotation bearings and the horizontal axis is based on thrust pivot bearings (a bit close to Reed 3P). Such bearing construction eliminates bearing wobbling, which has a great impact to the quality of the sound.

All Reed 2G tonearms have unique a azimuth adjustment system which allows implementing a tonearm with a replaceable armwand. The replaceable armwand feature allows you to change tonearm effective length and effective mass with no hassle. For connecting the armwand and the tonearm body, high quality LEMO connectors are used.

As with all Reed tonearms, 2G has a replaceable headshell.

Reed 2G can be wired with Finewire C37 cable or have a 5-pin DIN connector for a custom cabling solution.

The tonearm’s antiskating is magnetic and similar to one used in Reed 3P tonearm.

This tonearm is available in 3 difference length. 9”, 10.5” and 12”. The price quoted is for the 9” version. Contact us for prices for the other sizes.
