Do you know the effective mass of the tonearm?

Sometimes is very difficult to have this number in old turntables. I had this problem with mine. I e-mailed yamaha for information and actually had a response. I made a quick search for your model and I am not finding that value. So, my opinions is that you look in the Audio Technica VM line of products, because the specifications of your turntable is very similar to my Yamaha YP-B4 tonearm.

I have the VM530 EN, it sounds very accurate with good tracking.
I think you should take a look on that.
