The PrimaryControl Arrow Tonearm has the potential to become a classic. You will find a perfect basis for your high-grade cartridges if you are looking for an easy-to-set-up tonearm with high-grade bearings and a frictionless magnetic anti-skating device.
Developing the Arrow Tonearm, we took an approach where form follows function. The design goal of the Arrow Tonearm is the consequent derivation and damping of the enormous energy that cartridges produce and transmit into the arm wand during playback.
- In addition to the anti-resonance system, selected broke-in ceramic hybrid bearings are used in the tonearm.
- The skating forces are compensated contactless, utilizing neodymium magnets.
- The vertical gimbal tonearm bearing is located in the center of gravity of the Arrow Tonearm to reduce the mass moment of inertia.

The PrimaryControl Arrow Tonearm is the perfect mate for the Kinea turntable. Together, they are capable of producing excellent sounds. You can see and hear it here in our studio.
The Arrow is made in Germany. See this link for more information.
