Herb Papier’s brainchild lives on today, under the caring stewardship of Tri Mai in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Tri-Planar embraces the philosophy we espouse here at Galibier – well conceived, stable, mature designs which undergo evolutionary, continual process improvement.  Much of the Tri-Planar’s improvements over the years are “under the hood” and not plainly visible.

In addition to the Tri-Planar’s world-class sonics, we have not found a tonearm which is easier to set up and adjust precisely.  Refer to the blog post in the introduction above for our position on tonearm ergonomics and usability.

TriPlanar comes in 3 versions:

  • Mk VII U2 ‘Classic’ (250 mm effective length):  composite arm wand and copper wiring
  • U2 SE (250 mm effective length): carbon fiber arm wand and silver wiring
  • U12 (308mm effective length): carbon fiber arm wand and silver wiring
