Timeless elegance meets excellent sound. Refining Feickert’s well-proven bearing design, platter and high torque motor, Woodpecker takes all the virtues of previous models in a compact chassis.
The idea for the Dr. Feickert Analogue Woodpecker Turntable was built out of customers‘ enquiries. Most peoples‘ association of a turntable is a wooden box, platter and tonearm - that‘s it. And here we go: Have a look at Dr. Feickert's idea of such a design. With the very high level of performance already given from the older models the only difference should be the appearance.
The mission was not simple. From the very beginning it was clear that they wanted to excel their older products transferring their virtues into a traditional chassis. So they were looking for new ways to reach this goal and get the results they were looking for.
After a lot of refinement they found a way to get correct interaction of only one mass layer with the chassis. At the same time the focus was on "ease of use“ with features like the sliding armbase with pivot-spindle scale. This approach allows you to change tonearms within a couple of minutes. Imagine how easy it can be to set up a tonearm this way …
The result is a new design on its own - timeless elegance meets excellent sound. Refining their well-proven bearing design, platter and high torque motor, they bettered the virtues of the old models in a compact chassis. Needless to say that motor electronics was newly developed from scratch to match this new approach in a perfect way.
The sound will leave you stunned – no matter which tonearm you are planning to use (the sliding-base allows you to mount nearly all available tonearms from 9 up to 12 inches). Relax, listen to pure music and forget about the technology behind.
