From the grassroots beginnings of being hand-built on a kitchen table in 1953 to still being hand-built by the Grado family in Brooklyn today, these are what started it all. Ranging from entry-level to gold, sapphire, and diamond nestled inside cocobolo wood, your turntable is only as good as your cartridge.
Formerly the Statement and Reference Series, the new Timbre Series combines every next generation mid-range wooden phono cartridge into a striking and powerful family. Producing a warm, impactful, and accurate sound, this hand-built lineup delivers a signal with more control and accuracy than they ever have before.
Combining newly developed techniques with decade-old disciplines, our flagship cartridges have gold, sapphire, diamond, and wood working in harmony. It's like listening to your favorite song for the first time.
