linn sondek lp12
The Linn Sondek LP12 is a very special turntable to me, probably my very favorite of all.
Woodsong plinths are made from a wide range of species of wood from around the World. I am constantly searching out special woods for the creation of these plinths. The utmost care is taken in selecting woods for stability, aesthetics, and sonic quality. The same care and patience is given to milling, ‘racking’ (storage), and in ensuring proper seasoning prior to turning these gems into LP12 plinths. Many of the same techniques used by luthiers in the creation of fine musical instruments are utilized in my process.
Many people have experienced significant sonic improvements with the upgrade to a Woodsong LP12 plinth, and aesthetically, a new plinth will take your deck to the next level.
The Reference Series of Woodsong plinths is my standard line of finishes, including most species of wood. Finish and construction details are done to the highest degree of quality.
Reference series plinths are priced at $750.
Some of the woods included in the Reference Series are:
The Artist Series plinths represent the highest level of the art of the LP12 plinth. These are made from very special boards which are more difficult to find, expensive, and often require special techniques in the process of creating an LP12 plinth. These woods commonly take more time to create your plinth from. Artist Series Plinths are priced in two tiers, $1000USD and $1400USD.
Some Artist Series woods are:
Curly Maple/Toasted Maple

THE PRIVATE RESERVE:Having now been making LP12 plinths for over 7 years, and nearing 1000 LP12 plinths built, to date, I have come to realize that there are plinths that can be created that are ‘one-offs’ , fantastic creations that cannot easily come by. This can be due to wood species, or the exact details of the plinth. Examples of ‘The Private Reserve’, are polished, fluted Ebony, Master Grade Curly Koa with Blue Paua shell inlay, Snakewood and Ebony, or Pink Ivory, a really beautiful, pink African timber, or maybe a grain pattern that is absolutely ‘unobtanium’. These plinths are very limited in availability. The Private Reserve Plinths are individually priced according to their nature.
