Damping Oil for Tonearm Cueing Mechanism

Is your tonearm "slamming" your stylus down too quickly on your record?

If so, then this is likely what you need. Heat, time and bad design may cause your cueing lever assembly to lose some of its fluid that is used to slow the descent of  your stylus onto your vinyl.  Discovered by our senior repair technician to be used as a direct factory replacement used in numerous turntables over the decades, this goo is handily applied with the narrow body syringe to fit tight spots with minimal mess however it is up to the user to determine where and how to apply but generally there is a part that acts like a piston that is pushed down by the tonearm when the lever is pulled forward.


  • Non-Toxic but don't eat this silicone goo.
  • 1ml syringe is the right size to navigate most any tonearm mechanism and should be enough for several tables.
  • reusable cap.
  • Approximate consistency of honey. (300k cst)
  • never dries out.
  • stable over a wide range of temperatures
  • non-petroleum based

Damping oil review
This cueing lever damping oil corrected my quickly dropping tone arm issue very quickly and very easily. I have an AT 120 USB TT and understand that this is an issue experienced by many others. Application was very easy. Also - I ordered the product on a Saturday and was very happy and surprised when it arrived two days later on a Monday! Excellent customer service!

Just What Was Needed
This was my second time ordering from And it was another positive experience. This damping oil is exactly what my vintage BIC turntable needed to solve 'fast tone arm dropping'. Ordering was easy and was delivered quickly. A good product from a great store.

damper fluid
I plan on digitizing LPs and dragged out some old turntables to use in the process. They needed some reconditioning and this fluid (?) is perfect for the dampers. I haven't used the turntables in some time and after some cleaning, maintenance and parts replacement, they work well. Current and past customer service and communication with Turntable Needles is excellent! I will definitely use them again.
