FLoKaSon has now around 25 years of experience in cutterhead repair and design.
starting with winding feedbackcoils for the official neumann service in late 90ies
we moved on to the design of sc-99 head around 2000 with vinylium,
then in 2010 a lowcost semipro cutterhead generation, the caruso project was introduced
and now since 2018 we work on the latest generation of state of the art cutterheads.
la callas, our highest end and top performer, with ceramic feedback coils best matching coils. just the best of the best.
dialba. the affordable, but professional workhorse, just a new replacement for SX74 heads.
we have original Neumann Tools and currently 99 percent of all spareparts needed for full rebuilt of SX68, SX74 and SX84 heads
we prefer to rebuild your head than to repair it. a rebuilt means. new springs. new drive coils. new feedback coils. new torque tube. new V-spring
