Welcome Licorice Pizza (LP) lovers! Setup guides and Vinyl FAQ.


I bought some heavy Sorbothane sheeting with adhesive backing for my new dust cover. To begin with, I intend to apply the sorbothane sheeting to the back of the bottom half of the dust cover. This is where it is the least noticeable.

The sorbothane is intended to counteract the tendency of the dust cover to pick up airborne vibrations and feedback those vibrations to the turntable. The sorbothane is the thickest I could find with the greatest damping factor.

I know many avoid the dust cover because of the vibration issue. I like the ability to keep the dust off of my turntable, even while playing.
