Phono Cartridges

Phono Cartridges

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.
