Hildbrandt Beretta Rotary Shader Tattoo Machine
The Hildbrandt Beretta Shader Rotary features a 2mm bearing and is slightly slower running than its counterpart, the Silencer Liner, which is running a 1.50mm bearing. Previous versions of this frame design based on the original Swiss Rotary usually featured variations of 1mm, 1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm and 4mm bearings. Despite the wide selection of bearing sizes, most artists that have used this rotary frame design tended to always go back to the 2mm. The reason being that the 2mm was the most well rounded, suitable for both lining and shading. The larger you go, the less stable the machine, the smaller you go, the more likely the machine may cause the needle to snag the skin. This is because even small variations in the diameter of the bearing resulted into big differences in the way the machine ran. During the development of the 2nd version of the Beretta and Silencer, we wanted to maintain a difference in speed performance between the two models but did not want to overdo it. So we created the 1.75mm bearing for the Beretta, this bearing is smaller by the 2mm just enough to increase the speed of the machine without taking away from its usability. Beware of fake Hildbrandt machines, Hildbrandt machines all come with a codified warranty certificate that can be verified by emailing or calling us.
**The Silencer and Beretta Rotary by Hildbrandt’s had a role swap in all post 9/2014 models. The Beretta was changed from a 1.75mm bearing to a 2mm one and the Silencer was updated to a 1.5mm bearing.
