January 1, 2022: The soft launch of the WallyScope has gone better than anticipated. At this time we are sold out of our initial run of WallyScopes and do not expect to have units available for several weeks. When we do have more WallyScopes orders will be filled on a first paid - first filled basis. At this time, we are taking deposits to ensure your order will be filled as soon as possible. Please note we may not have additional WallyScopes available until March 2022 due to supply chain challenges.
If you want to make a deposit to get in the queue for a WallyScope, please contact us directly and we will invoice you for the $500 deposit fee and will ship immediately once your WallyScope is done being built.
The WallyScope provides an accurate and simple two-step process for measuring your cartridge's dynamic rake angle and can also be used for assessing stylus condition and wear patterns. Control of the subject in the frame and fine focus is made easy by the unique design which affords motion control in all three axes.
The WallyScope's compound lenses (2x, 4x & 10x magnification) and high-sensitivity, 1/2" format back-illuminated camera capture high resolution images with extraordinary light sensitivity and powerful magnification levels. The WallyScope is mounted to a XYZ stage allowing easy manipulation of height, fine focus and left/right shifting. A specially trimmed vinyl record makes dynamic measurements of stylus quick and easy. The entire kit is packaged in a rugged weatherproof storage case.
Camera software is compatible with PC, Mac or Linux.
WallyScope orders are fulfilled on a first sold, first shipped basis beginning December 27, 2021. Production is limited.
Starting in March 2022: WallyScope will be made available for rent to current WallyTools owners only. For more information, please contact us using the Contact page.
