I have now just gotten started in rebuilding reproducers on my machines. My question to the group is: what is the tuning procedure for the needle arm setup. Is it voodoo, black magic. Or is there a process to tune. Pivot points to loose will cause a buss to noise? Too tight cause frequency range loss? What is the deal? I have searched but not found much detail in what I want to know.

Here is an excellent page at the APS. Go to the bottom of the page for rebuilding the Exhibition reproducer.
