I picked up an older Grado ZF3 pmount cartridge, so I found the red3 stylus as a perfect replacement. Running it on a Technics SL-J2 and it sounds fantastic! I like buying from LPTunes, fast shipping and well packaged.
Received the most up-to-date Grado Red3. It was shipped relatively quickly even for the most cost-conscious shipping option. In-stock, picked and shipped quickly, and with timely (and accurate) automated tracking updates. Pretty darn good service! And as for Grado Red it's just such a great p-mount cart. For the money a fantastic cart, dead center, nice deep, rich soundstage that provides detailed separation of instruments without any veil. Really helps that it captures the real sound decay of sax and cymbals that paired with good speakers and capable pre/amp and robust amplification absolutely sings. It's silky and not sibilant, but exhibits all the emotion of the artists. And bass reproduction is fantastic to boot. I'm sure there are significant improvements in clarity available at much higher investments, but for the money this gets you pretty far up the listening experience. Enjoy!
This was the first replacement stylus for my 32 year old Yamaha turntable! It needed it. The sound is much more live with more punch, depth and range. The only downside, those pesky pops and cracks aren't muffled out by a dead stylus. :). I also bought a new bottle of cleaner to help continue to care for my old vinyl.
Upgraded from Blue to Red. Very nice sound. Smooth sounding when playing classical music. Definitely worth the sale price from LP Tunes. Safe and quick shipping. I say go for it if you are a Grado user.
Upgrade from Green to Red. I can definitely tell the difference.
Shipping speed from LP Tunes super fast.
Perfect fit, looks great
