    The Scout 2 features a 1 7/8 thick aluminum platter (with a stainless steel damping plate) in place of the Scout's 1 3/8 acrylic platter.


    The result of mating a great platter to a simple good looking design! In only seven years, the VPI Scout has become the industry standard as the best-reviewed turntable on the planet! For 2009, we saw fit to bring some big improvements to its best-selling turntable. You may recognize the outboard motor and the plinth, but you will do a double take at the exquisite platter and tonearm.


    Every VPI Scout II comes standard with the JMW 9T! This incredible tonearm features a redesigned armtube that is tapered and filled with a proprietary damping material. This revolutionary design greatly reduces internal resonance, yielding a full and rich sound, with a vast soundstage and increased resolution and detail. The added mass also produces deeper bass response and fantastic compatibility with moving coil cartridges.


    For maximum stability and speed accuracy the platter is made from 1 7/8 thick machined 6061 aluminum and is attached to a nonmagnetic 303 stainless steel damping plate. The entire piece weighs in at an impressive 18 pounds! Because the aluminum is grounded to the steel, there is virtually no static buildup or sonic degradation. What's in the grooves is what comes out of your speakers.


    The VPI Scout II's plinth is made from 1 1/8 thick MDF bonded to a 12 gauge steel plate giving a rigid, non-resonant plinth. The massive platter sits on chrome-hardened ball bearing held by a 60 Rockwell-hardened shaft, below which is a black delrin nut.


    The VPI Scout II generates absolutely no additional noise for a pristinely quiet spin. The AC synchronous motor is contained in a separate steel housing and drives the platter via an Aries belt. This combination produces quiet yet stable running with extremely accurate speed. Speeds are 33 and 45 standard, while 78 is optional.

    Rough Guide To Barbecue Bob

    Lovingly Remastered Using Pioneering Restoration Techniques


    Very few names in the history of the blues capture the imagination quite like that of Barbecue Bob. Don't be fooled by the quirky pseudonym and gimmicky publicity photograph of him posing in his chef's whites with guitar in hand, as he was an incredibly influential figure whose records helped pave the way for many of the important bluesmen that followed.


    One of the unsung heroes of the Piedmont blues style, Robert Hicks aka Barbecue Bob recorded over sixty sides for Columbia Records and became one of the best-selling artists on their 'race series', outsold only by Bessie Smith, Ethel Waters and Blind Willie Johnson. With his original and witty compositions he was one of the real pioneers of the Atlanta blues scene of the time, but his career was tragically ended by his death from pneumonia at the age of just 29.


    Born in Walnut Grove, Georgia to a family of sharecroppers, Hicks learned to play the guitar from his brother Charley and Savannah 'Dip' Weaver, the mother of his friend Curley Weaver. He teamed up with Charley, Curley and harmonica player Eddie Mapp to perform at dances, parties and picnics in the Atlanta area. After leaving the group in 1926, Hicks became a chef in a barbecue joint where he would cook, serve and sing to the customers. He soon became something of a local celebrity and was noticed by a talent scout from Columbia Records, who gave him the opportunity to record under the catchy title of Barbecue Bob.


    Characterized by a heavy percussive guitar style, he often used a bottleneck and played with a frailing technique that is more often associated with the claw hammer banjo. His twelve string guitar gave a rich accompaniment to his warm nasal singing voice which, compared to the morbid and foreboding songs of the Delta blues, created a vibe which was jaunty and upbeat. With a huge repertoire of songs ranging from hokum to slow blues and spirituals to traditional songster tunes, his music is imbued with a special warmth typical to the East Coast blues.


    Even from the opening few measures of his very first record Barbecue Blues, Hicks signature sound of a bright and trebly twelve string guitar combined with his expressive voice is instantly accessible and almost 'pop' sounding in comparison with other blues singers of the time. His debut song was a huge success and led to a prolific recording career over the next four years when, it is said, he lived fast and enjoyed the high life. Hicks frequently recorded with his brother Charley, who was known as Laughing Charley Lincoln, and would later record several sides in 1930 with Buddy Moss and Curley Weaver as the Georgia Cotton Pickers.


    Largely due to his life being tragically cut short in 1931, his music has been sadly overlooked and has therefore not received the respect proffered to other East coast players such as Blind Willie McTell and Buddy Moss. He was however a true innovator in his time, and this compilation gives proof that his music is undoubtedly some of the most engaging early blues that you are likely to hear.

    Magnolia Electric Co


    10th Anniversay Deluxe Edition


    Expanded Reissue Of Songs: Ohia's Classic Record Gathering Together One Unreleased Song, Demos And Full-band Song Only
    Previously Available In Japan.


    Includes Rare Photos From The Era In Which It Was Recorded


    The hallmark of Jason Molina's career, Magnolia Electric Co., is both a confluence of all he would create and a line in the
    sand to mark a shift in his songwriting approach. It was the last statement under his iconic Songs: Ohia moniker, and the
    moment before he began making new legends as Magnolia Electric Co. for the next 10 years. Now- here at the end of that
    decade - with Molina gone, his work gathers more weight and meaning. This expanded 10-year anniversary edition of
    Magnolia Electric Co. features one never-before-released track plus many rarities. The full-band studio outtake of fan
    favorite Whip Poor Will is a sweet and spare version that ended up being played far differently on Magnolia Electric Co.'s
    final album Josephine (2009). Also included is the studio version of The Big Game Is Every Night. Previously only available
    on the Japanese version of the album, this opus serves as Molina's thesis statement, its poetry weaving through the 20th
    Century, through art and sporting culture - ultimately questioning what it means to be an American in the autumn of the
    American Era. The edition also gathers Molina's gutting demos for the record, including those two outtakes. Nearly each
    begins with audible sound of the RECORD button being pressed down on the tape player. They are so close and intimate,
    it's hard to look them right in the eyes. But you should.


    With the wailing lap steel of the album opener Farewell Transmission, Jason Molina & Company usher in a new day,
    playing the sort of rock that your cool uncle rolled to back in the '70s. Landing somewhere on the radar sonically between
    Bob Dylan's Desire and Bob Seger's Beautiful Loser, though thematically in-line with Lynyrd Skynyrd's Simple Man, The
    Magnolia Electric Co lies at the crossroads of working class rock, white soul, swamp rock and outlaw country


    While Songs: Ohia's last record Didn't It Rain was a meditation on roots and stability, Magnolia Electric Co. finds itself
    toiling with the wages of change, which is well illustrated in I've Been Riding with the Ghost, a real rig rocker that could
    have easily fit on Time Fades Away, on which Molina sings: See I ain't getting better, I am only getting behind. Standing on
    the crossroad trying to make up my mind. Trying to remember how it got so late. Why every night pain comes from a
    different place. Now something's got to change.


    This thematic preoccupation with change also manifests itself in the rotating cast of lead vocalists. While the entire album
    boasts a doo wop-like line-up with five vocalists on the floor, six of the eight songs have Molina in the tall stool with the
    ever-enchanting Jennie Benford (of Jim & Jennie & the Pinetops, who was also a key player on Didn't It Rain) as primary
    back-up vocalist. But on two songs, new Songs: Ohia players step up to take on lead vocal duties, singing Molina-penned
    songs. Lawrence Peters takes the lead on The Old Black Hen with his fantastic Merle Haggard-esque country croon, while
    Miss Scout Niblett appears from the nether world of the Ohia wardrobe with feathers in her hair and casts her spell on the
    Ohia rig barreling through Peoria Lunch Box Blues.


    Recorded live, in its entirety, at the hands of Steve Albini at his Electrical Audio Studio in Chicago, Illinois, with the same
    core back-up band that played on the Mi Sei Apparaso Come Un Fantasma Italian live album, this is the record where the
    Songs: Ohia fan demographics make a radical shift from the dominant bedroom universe of the world's lonely, sensitive,
    overqualified young white dudes, and finds refuge in the masses by being embraced by the world's truck drivers, sorority
    chicks, and hockey players, alike. Indeed, this is the first Songs: Ohia record with more than one song that could be played
    at a strip joint or monster truck show. Amid the mid-tempo slow jams, there lie some of the most upbeat material that
    Songs: Ohia has recorded to date.

    Periphery Ring Clamp


    The Periphery Ring Clamp greatly improves the performance of VPI turntables by flattening the outer edges of LPs, increasing the cartridge's tracking ability, removing resonance and aiding detail retrieval. A massive ring designed to sit just outside the lead-in groove, the Periphery Ring Clamp's weight flattens the record onto the platter, eliminating edge warps and more completely coupling the record to the platter.


    Scout, Aries 1 & 2, HW-19 & older TNT owners will need to purchase the HRX platter and bearing in order to use the Periphery Ring Clamp. Due to bearing height differences between the VPI models, please give us a call if you'd like to upgrade these components and we'll help you get the right bearing for your turntable.
