reassuring. Thanks for a pleasant and trouble-free experience. Best

most rare cassette deck from Clarion. Only 1000 were made and only 300
were for international market. All the others were for Japan market
only. I bought it in 1979 and used it until 1991. From then until now it
was in storage. I disassembled and fully rebuild it. I couldn't find
belts nowhere in world except you! Now it's fully functional!!! Many

service and the belt. Whilst the belt is a bit narrower than original it
is magic works a treat. you can quote me as a successfull and satisfied

possibility of the belt, it grabs like glue! Thanks a lot," Roger

person! Just quick note to say thanks very much for the drive belt which
arrived safely today. Iím not sure which one of you Iíve been dealing
with, but the service has been top class. You correctly predicted that a

out from the chart ... and then got the belt here in just a couple of
days. As I write, Iím sitting here listening to vinyl that hasnít had a
needle through the grooves in years Ė all thanks to you. G Brown"
your excellent website whilst searching for a turntable drive belt for
my Pioneer system. Unlike most on-line sales places your way of
explaining about belt sizes and how to measure the turntable seems very
logical and fool-proof". (09/03/2010)
Audio, Just a line to thank you for the very quick service and for
taking the trouble to provide a website where we could easily identify
the correct belt for our video machine. We are involved mainly in
services for bands such as recording, PAT testing, video, photography
and now there seems to be a demand for transferring VHS tapes to DVD,
hence the need to keep our VHS machine working! Thanks again we will
keep details of your website and recommend it to our customers if the
occasion should arrise.
