Ships to US only

The Grado Reference Master 1 Phono cartridge is a fixed coil design, handcrafted at Grado Labs from specially selected species of mahogany. Unlike the Grado Prestige series, the Grado Reference cartridges have a generator/stylus module that is not replaceable thus allowing a redesigned one-piece magnetic circuit and a reduction of chassis resonances. The Grado Reference phono cartridges utilize manufacturing and assembly techniques of superlative accuracy and precision. The result is virtual perfection - the finest phono cartridges in the world! To hear the celestial performance of the Grado Reference cartridges, we recommend that they be used with the finest equipment.

The Grado Reference Master 1 phono cartridge features a specially designed nude elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing and a modified five-piece OTL cantilever technology achieving an additional 5% tip mass reduction over the Grado Reference Platinum and Grado Reference Sonata cartridges. The coils are wound with ultra-high purity long crystal oxygen free copper wire.

Hyperelliptical stylus for Shure Me97HE cartridge

Worked perfect

Thanks for your fast service and the product is great, too.

I don't know what you receive my previous email. But the needle was broke off the stylus. Beside the point it didn't fit anyway. So is what I need is a stylus and a cartridge that is compatible with my turntable. Thank you look forward to hearing back from you

Stylus for Pioneer M-6500 turntable

Three Cheers

I now have better than twenty hours of listening with my new Jico V-15 Type Three HE from LP Tunes. I say “ three cheers”, for Jico’s V-15 Type Three. It sounded excellent from the start, and has continuously improved with play. Used first with a Dual 1229, then a Technics SL-5350, it provides strong bass, pleasing midrange and detailed treble. Better than my original Shure from 1974? Yes. In my opinion, it is definitely a worthy upgrade. If you’re fence sitting, I recommend you take the plunge.
