    WOW has anyone looked at the new ms200tt stand version? i don't think i have ever seen a better looking stand setup DROPWEIGHT!

    http://www.stringway.com/ml120.htm

    wish they could make a stand that looks just as good to attach to the old ms200tt portables =D

    It looks like it's essentially the MS200 foot operated machine(same turntable, frame mount and stand) with the ML120 dropweight tension mechanism on it. Also has a nice storage location for the dropweight and arm.

    Get that stringer off the floor; you want to save those knees for the tennis court…

    If that thing sold for around a thousand dollars, like it should, I'd probably buy one just because it's so darn cool looking.

    Actually no more functional than the ml100 on the stand that I owned years ago. Ergonomically, this is more eye candy, but functionally no different. I paid 825 for mine with single action clamps + stand, used it for two years, sold it for 625 to a user here...By far the best home machine out there in my opinion....

    the ms200tt really is a kick arse machine. the only drawback is, well, the drawback! if i did it again, i might get double action, but otherwise an excellent machine. i must say also, mounting system is top notch. and the tensioning system...perfecto!
