Grado 78C Cartridge

Attention 78RPM Collectors, This Cartridge is Made for You!

Grado builds this conical stylus mono cartridge specifically for 78 RPM Records. Designed for excellent sound reproduction at higher platter speeds, the 78C offers high voltage output and excellent stability even under severe use. Much of this is due to the high-quality construction and the shape and mass of the stylus. The lightweight diamond allows for wider frequency response while still accommodating the higher 2-5Gm tracking forces required. Whether you're playing 78RPMs for fun or to archive them, the 78C helps you get the most out of each record.

The Prestige model 78C uses high-quality oxygen free wire in the coils, a three-piece OTL cantilever and a specially designed, high polished conical/spherical 3 mil diamond mounted in a brass bushing.
