The Acrylic "Hood" for the Thorens TD124, TD121, TD134 and TD135

note: click on each thumbnail to view image full size.


For the TD124, this dustcover, called a 'Hood' is designed to work with original equipment plinths, and all others that hug the chassis profile closely.  This dustcover also hugs the chassis profile closely.  Acrylic plate thickness: 3.6mm  (throughout)

The Hood comes in two versions; standard and with cutout.  The standard version is for original equipment tonearms, and those others that do not protrude their counterweights beyond the chassis perimeter.  For the many other tonearms that do, there is a cutout version.
