Keep out of reach of pandas.
With its handmade bamboo design, the Pebbles TA-1 Turntable is a thing of beauty. But the decision to use bamboo wasn’t just aesthetic; manufacturers Tri-Art chose it for its tough rigidity and ability to dampen vibration. Being non-magnetic, it’s also (supposedly) quieter than plastic or metal.
Plus, bamboo is super renewable. The fastest-growing plant in the world, certain species of bamboo grow to a meter a day, at a rate of almost 4 cm an hour. So as well as ticking boxes for looks and sound, this deck is also massively eco-friendly.
Price tag? $1295. Head over to Tri-Art for more info and see photos below.
