WallyTractor Universal v2.01
Start from Certainty! The WallyTractor Universal is the most accurate and universally applicable way to optimize the horizontal alignment of your stylus/cantilever assembly.
The WallyTractor Universal is the cartridge alignment protractor that features arcs specific to the tonearm you own as well as tonearms you may own in the future.
The WallyTractor Universal is the only cartridge alignment protractor that allows you to reduce playback distortions based upon the age of your record collection. You can get the lower distortion of a 12” arm with a 9” arm!

Features Baerwald and Loefgren traces
Personalized support from WAM Engineering
The WallyTractor Universal is obsolescence-proof! Should a tonearm become available in the market that is not represented by your WallyTractor Universal, WAM Engineering offers a very generous replacement program that involves adding any new arcs that you might need.
The WallyTractor Universal includes a 10x magnifying loupe, custom laser etched pivot to spindle ruler and spindle jig.

"The new WallyTractor is a versatile tool, extremely well-engraved—far superior to the already excellent original—and easier to read. The WallyTractor Universal is highly recommended for anyone who needs an easy-to-use, easy-to-read, universal alignment gauge."

Wow! I was pretty close with my previous setup but obviously not enough because the improvement in audio quality is very noticeable! I’m really glad I listened to the praises of Michael Fremer and made this leap. This is profound. Thanks for your helpful reply explaining tonearm length as well as instructional videos - also much appreciated

"I have a VPI HRX with the new gimbal arm. I discovered my pivot to spindle was 2mm short of the spec. I was able to move the pivot enough to 300mm. I would not have known it was 2mm short without your ruler. It is now correct and using the new WallyTractor was very easy to use. It is an improvement over the old WallyTractor. I definitely heard an improvement in the sound."

My phono system has never sounded better and for that I thank you for being so generous with your time and expertise.

I’m really loving these WallyTools. The WallyTractor is the first protractor that I actually understand how to use. The results are astounding. My system has never sounded so good!

I just got the WallyTractor and it’s amazing! I aligned 3 turntables last night and heard a difference immediately. I was using a [competitor] protractor before and the results seemed good, until I used the WallyTractor. There is a noticeable ease and focus that wasn’t there before. The strain is gone - even in spots that had sibilance before - and I was more involved in the music. I was actually having a hard time shutting it down for the night.

The thing that struck me the most was a sense of greater presence with the instruments. I was listening to an original Verve pressing of Count Basie On My Way and Shoutin’ Again last night and specifically, the trombone projected a phwaaap at the beginning of a brief solo. It was always there but, not always THERE. It felt a little more real than I remembered... more soundstage depth and slightly more width as well which I wasn’t expecting at all. There was definitely a little more space between instruments... I felt everything was a little more defined and less congested.
