Inspired by Frank Schröder, designed and individually crafted by Peter Ledermann, Soundsmith's Sussurro is a cartridge designed to specifically address the most critical issues of cartridge design. Because the laws of physics don't change all that often, cartridges must adhere to first principles, and do it carefully - to get sublime results. In accord with those laws, the Sussurro has an unbelievably low effective moving mass. Among the important benefits of that is the increased effect of the damping system - which means it can be reduced - a critical requirement for retrieving micro detail and not glossing over what you want to hear.

The unique Sussurro damping system has been critically tuned as well, taming all primary resonances. Then all critical stationary parts are fixed rigidly within its tiny magnetic structure and the fully shielded magnetic case is engineered for extreme stability - holding all non-moving parts in exact position at all times. Finally, an innovative energy distribution system designed to effectively transfer the mechanical energy away from the cantilever through the cartridge body into the tone arm.

Now available from Soundsmith Designer Peter Ledermann's DirectGrace Records, Recordings to Rescue Children: Elio Villafranca's Flower By the Dry River.
