Editorial Review

After getting fed up with dust and static spoiling my audio experience, I decided to do something about it. The factory rubber and felt mats seemed to contribute to the problem, so I began a search for a new material. After much experimentation, I found my answer. Deer hide. It is fantastic! So supple and buttery soft. Not only is my static gone, but the bass response is enhanced and there is additional sound dampening from the motor, as well. The overwhelming majority of reviewers (myself included) even swear it makes their records sound better. I hand cut each piece which enables me to work around natural flaws, bumps, nicks, and fluctuations in thickness to create a uniform, defect free mat. I punch the center hole slightly smaller to create a tight fit warding off any mat slippage. With my setup, I like to use the leather grain side up. Through this process, I believe I've found what works best, and most importantly, what SOUNDS best. All leather is not created equally. Hides vary in quality, thickness, feel etc. I've made it my mission to find the best hides for our audio purposes. I emphasize that I use deer hide because it is twice as expensive per square foot than the leather used for some other cheaper turntable mats I've seen. I would much rather explain the price of my mats than apologize for the quality. Like the Model T Ford, you can have any color you want so long as it's black. ( I am actually doing a very limited run of chocolate brown. I found a gorgeous hide that looks especially great on wood paneled turntables). The mats are right about 1/8 of an inch thick and fit nicely on all 12" platters. Compatible with Rega, Linn, Music Hall, Avid, Pro-Ject, VPI, Audio-Technics, Jensen, Thorens, Garrard, Micro Seiki etc. When you order a turntable mat from me, what you're getting is a beautiful, handcrafted piece of material which will not only help eliminate dust and static issues, but also improve fidelity. Thanks for looking! Jake
