Drive Belts

If you’ve been following our mailing list, you know that as of early 2021, Kapton belts are no longer available in lengths for use with turntables.

Galibier Design - Kapton BeltWe’ve developed a replacement – a low-mass fabric belt which is saturated in neoprene. It’s very similar in performance to Kapton belts. 

We’ll update the photo on this page shortly.

  • The price for these belts is $38.50
  • They are 46″ in circumference, .157″ wide (4mm), and .010-.014″ thick.
  • These belts are seamless (no splice)

Owners of non-Galibier turntables:

Note that these belts follow our rigid philosophy.  They will not stretch, and are therefore not compatible with the vast majority of belt driven turntables which employ stretchy rubbber belts

Making Your Own Belts

For those of you who are interested in splicing your own rigid belts from various types of recording tape, we’ve left information about splicing in our support section.
