dtp tamper size 53mm 0r 54mm

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that some people are successfully using a 53mm tamper for the DTP, is this the best size for a 54mm basket that is supplied or should one consider a 54mm tamper up-grade. Also what is it about the supplied sage tamper that people do not like?

I read somewhere on here that a 54mm tamper did not fit so bought a 53mm Motta tamper and found it to be just fine. Never used the original so couldn't compare but the Motta feels very nice.

The Sage tamper is light and uncomfortable. When you get a heavier more comfortable tamper you will notice the difference straight away.
