THE VESSEL RSM CARTRIDGE 
- So much more than just music.

With its hardness and soundspeed, Ruby has far higher sensitivity to stimuli from groove modulations. The refined cylindrical Ruby cantilever in the R3SM discovers and transmits more material from groove modulations, more energy sheltered within record grooves thus conveying more inspired sentience and realism. With its Microline diamond, it offers remarkable radiance and luminosity along with a fast, transparent and natural presentation that immerses you with your music.

Helpful and quick

This team is really good at what they do. They were able to quickly identify the exact one I needed from a bad picture, send it in super quick time and followed up. Nice work. Can recommend

Wow! Just wow!

Incredible stylus replacement. I'm hearing sounds I've not heard before and with better dynamics. Better than original.

Mean and clean!

This is by far the best record brush I’ve owned and I’ve had a few. Made with minimal plastic, which is a plus!

Great help!

Identified what stylus type I needed. Gave me 4 price/quality options. All via email and quick. My turntable is back! THANK YOU!
