This Grado Black-3 is the most affordable phono cartridge offered by the manufacturer.

As typically with Grado, this is a Moving Iron cantilever technology cartridge, the preferred design of the New York-based manufacturer.

Grado Black-3: features

The coil and stylus/cantilever assembly of the Black-3 have had a facelift, reducing the cartridge weight by 17%.

Ultra-high purity oxygen free copper wires in the coils.

The elliptical stylus is mounted onto a brass cantilever.

Like the entire production, this MM cartridge is assembled and tested in the company's historic production facility in Brooklyn, USA.
