How to Measure your Belt Length

There are hundreds of models of turntables out there. Please assume that we do not know the details of your deck unless it’s listed. Rather, use the guidance below to order your belt.

Belt lengths are specified in mm using the circumference (i.e. the total length of the belt).

Note that these belts are flat and will not work on decks with round belts such as Rega or Michell, unless they have an Origin Live motor kit fitted.

If your deck is not listed in the ordering section, you can order a custom length for no extra charge. To work out the length you need, use one of the following 2 methods.

Method 1

To measure the circumference you can take your existing belt and lay it flat against a ruler – measure the length and then double the measurement – this will give you the circumference (i.e. total length). If you measure the belt this way please tell us “measured from belt” when you order. This can be noted in the ordering online process when you come to the box that says “custom length”.

Method 2

Alternatively, you can use a length of thread or string looped round the sub-platter (or platter if belt runs on this) and pulley. This mimics the belt path. Measure the thread length to give the circumference of the belt i.e. the total length of the belt. If you measure the belt this way please tell us “measured from thread” when you order. This can be noted in the ordering online process when you come to a box that says “custom length”. For an upgrade over conventional flat neoprene belts, we use a special material that produces the most superior results of any material we have tried (and there are a lot). These belts are not only remarkable in producing noticeably better sound, especially in deeper and more precise bass but they also eliminate static problems that sometimes occur on decks.
