    Hi I would really like a black fabric cover for a turntable, seen loads on eBay, but no idea of quality. Has anyone purchased such a thing (or have one they no longer use and would sell on maybe?

    Lidded. Two decks, a Yamaha YP-D9 and a Technics 1200.

    Might be worth approaching a local soft furnishings supplier, someone who makes curtains, pillows etc. Very easy for someone with a sewing machine to run up a cover. Four corner seams and hem round the edges.

    I use a tea towel to cover my LP12 when it's not in use.

    The seller asks you to supply the dimensions you want so the fit is as tight as you want it to be. I added a cm in each dimension to mine so that it's easy to slip on and off. They also made me one for the power supply for a few quid more.
    If I can get a pic sorted I'll post it later.

    A piece of cake if you know your way around a sewing machine I suppose.

    Years ago, I just bought a piece of black felt. I 'hemmed' the 4 sides, sized for the exact size of the lid top surface, on the basis that most dust gathers on horizontal surfaces.

    I don't bother with it now. I just dust over with a fluffy duster every once in a while, sweeping across (not circular motion), 3 sweeps is enough to do the lid on the RP6.

    Occasionally use a cellulose sponge dampened with hot water and washing up liquid solution, again only sweeping across in one direction.

    After 8 years or so, the lid is still blemish free.

    You could get a custom sized perspex sheet from eBay and put silicon/rubber feet on them.
    That wouldn't change the look much.
