Wanted: Gates CB77

Hello Haven,

So, I’ve had a few Gates over the years and restored them. At one point I was after a grail (Garrard 301 grease bearing) and had to move a bunch of stuff...Off went my Gates tables.

looking to buy one or two Gates CB77 in operating or restorable condition. I know some of you hoarders have to have one of these hiding somewhere...

Carefull Steve, all these big honkin idlers winding up in South Jersey is liable to upset the state. Were gonna sink into the Atlantic. LOL

I fitted the Calrad SV16 + DL102 on my CB77. Pure bliss when I just want to enjoy music!

Happy CB77 hunting!

I have a CB77 here and I am in sell-down mode... but it's on my "keep it if I can" list.

I kinda sorta wish I'd kept the CB500 but as @watt notes, they're not small.

I hear you. Let me know...I have all kinds of interesting trades too...and of course cash. Put me as #1 on your contact list if you decide to sell

Will do. I also just reached out to a friend who has one, told him you were looking. I'm not sure if he is selling either, but worth a shot.

awesome! Do you know at one point I had (4) of these and I’ve had a CB500 twice. Pathetic...but lately I’ve been keeping way more than I sell...wife hasn’t yet realized the audio piles are getting larger
 
Bah hah hah...i have your two Gates CB-77s, black and gray hammertone versions.

Need one back? That can be arranged...with the proper transfer of baksheesh, of course.

No, I am not returning to the land of audio forums but was just looking up the mounting distance of stock Gates arms to see if I have anything that would fit and, wouldn't ya know it, found this thread.

Also have the big Gates. And another CB-77 somewhere.

OMG, Joe I didn’t know you are who had my tables! I kinda feel honored now. I think I’m within driving distance...I’m in Southern NJ 08085.

let me know.

I'll be up in South Philly visiting my mom before long. Perhaps we can arrange transfer there?

Tables are still as received. Didn't do anything with them except adding them to the hoard. Might have more bong resin on them then when sent, but that's good for the paint.

Trying to figure out which arm is right. Seems like an ATP-12 will bolt right on, 242mm mounting distance. Have some kind of ATP in the stash.
 
Don't have any Decca but I tink the ATP-12P is a drop in and I have one of those. ATP-12 was a broadcast item. In fact, i think it was offered with CB-77 at the end of the run, post Micro-Trak 303.
