Ships to US only

Grado 78 RPM cartridges are designed for high output and excellent stability even under severe use. Each cartridge can be used for either archival or casual play without concern for undue wear on the record. All Grado 78 RPM phono cartridges have a considerable reduction in tip mass resulting in extended frequency response while tracking forces can range from 2-5 grams. Many experts acclaim Grado 78 RPM cartridges as virtually the finest 78 RPM cartridges in the world.

The Grado 78E cartridge uses a modified four-piece OTL cantilever technology, oxygen free wire in the coils and a specially designed, highly polished, conical/spherical 3.0 mil diamond mounted in a brass bushing.

Lovely sound

Put this on a VM540 cart. The result is excellent, several levels beyond the VNM40ML that came with.

Stylus for Shure MP-1 cartridge

Jico Shure VN35E

Compared to VN35HE, it needs more tracking force for cleanest tracking of sibilants, 1.5 g (VN35HE is OK at 1.3 g). Tonally, it is closer to original Shure elliptical stylus for V15 III, still tiny bit brighter but very good overall. Slightly less good at inner grooves then Jico HE version, but better overall balance is a plus.

Great Item Great Price

Item was great, priced fairly. Customer Service contact could have been better.

Tough to Beat at the Sale Price

This cart/stylus combo is an improvement on the giant slayer AT-3600L with the carbon fiber cantilever and conical stylus. It adds the more refined elliptical stylus to the same cantilever and body. A sale price of 35 bucks is a no brainer. At regular price of 75, I'd probably go with the stock configuration for a third of that, then upgrade the stylus to the Vividline stylus, which is a world beater combo for 100 bucks..
