Sumiko's Black Pearl Will Get Your Pulse Racing!
Long before Johnny Depp transformed himself into a pirate icon, Sumiko's Black Pearl was pillaging overburdened and overpriced audiophile cartridges. The Black Pearl offers a substantial step up from Sumiko's entry level Oyster with greater detail, dynamics and presence.
With an almost 20% reduction in stylus mass and an upgraded generating mechanism, the Black Pearl offers far better performance for only a modest increase in price. Tracking, fine detail and resolution are much improved and like all Sumiko cartridges, dynamic range is outstanding.
