The Scale Model Equipment Company was formed in 1946 by Alastair Robertson-Aikman to make models and detailed parts for the model engineering trade, but in 1959 Alastair required a Pick-Up arm of his own and designed a prototype which received fantastic feedback, so in September of 1959 the company was re-named to SME and its first precision pick-up arm went into production with a run of 25 a week, comprising of individually machined components. Now with over 50 years experience of making pick-up arms SME still manufacture in house and are considered the leaders in making quality, precision pick-up arms and turntables. If you take your vinyl seriously there really is no better than a SME arm so please pop into HFL to see and hear them in action.
