Replacement for Pickering D-3000 D3000 stylus
The replacement for the Pickering D-3000 D3000 stylus is used with the Pickering XSV/3000, XSP/3000, XV1800S phono cartridges and other Pickering XSV and XUV phono cartridge models. The stylus features a highly polished Vivid Line diamond bonded to a narrow aluminum alloy cantilever tube for superior tracing of record grooves, excellent rendition of voice and music and harmonically complete sound quality.
After having purchased a Pickering xsv3000 cartridge from The Auction Site, I finally decided to purchase a stylus for it. My musical listening tastes have changed over the years I have now realized. This stylus and cartridge combo presents more of a house party sound ....loud, deep bass, and extreme highs. I now desire a more mellow non fatiguing sound. I want to hear all the details and space and separation on my records. My ears have matured and I want to hear the performance in the sound not just over emphasized bass and treble. I have removed this combo from my turntable. This is not a knock against the stylus more so just an evolution in my expectations of what I expect out of my music presentation.
