Breaking disc arms

    I never seen anyone write in about this. I’ve had several break over the years… a couple on my Aoyama Etude (’89), and one on my LH15 (’71).
    Once I bought a new disc from Aoyama…took two tries to get the right one.
    This time, I did what I did with my LH…just switched a disc I don’t use (B# or E#) with the broken one. I will try to get the replacement so I’ll have it for the next one that breaks.
    So I’m wondering if anyone else has experienced a disc arm breaking. Fortunately, mine have happened during practice, not during performance.

    No one else has experienced this?

    Yes, it happened to my old LH 17 twice. The second time it happened while I was playing for afternoon tea at a posh hotel. The peg flew off and narrowly avoided hitting a guest!! Both times I just ordered a new one from the UK LH dealer and replaced it myself. I got the regulation as good as I could and then had it checked at the next service.

    Must have been tricky to keep playing without the disc functioning.
