Damm

Unread post by Latteman »

🤬 just knocked the tip off my Grado wood bodied reference mm
It was new to me £160 on eBay about a year ago and is £300-400 new
Does anyone have info on Re tipping cost or should I forget it
Cheers

It will probably cost you more than you paid for it to have a new Cantilever and stylus put on it
Depends if you are willing to spend the required on having it fixed or wether a new cart is a better option financially.
Northwest analogue or Expert stylus company are a good bet, depends if they will take on the job
You can borrow my ultimo 20a if you are stuck for a cart
A load of old shite

As Ant says, it's near enough the same value cartridge as the re-tipping costs, so it depends on how much you like the Grado or if you fancy a change and buy a new one.

If you want to send it to Germany, Franz-Josef Schulte does a very good work. Retipping with an elliptical stylus is 125 EUR. Tonabnehmerservice.de

I don't know the wood body Grado's as well as the prestige line, but isn't the stylus as replaceable as on these lower models?

Maybe totally wrong for you but look here - https://www.analogueseduction.net/stylu ... ement.html

You're welcome. Some years ago his predecessor Axel Schürholz did a Yamaha MC-9 for me with this stylus. Sounded as good as before and lasted over 1500 hours. Franz-Josef Schulte worked within the company for years before taking it over after the retirement of his boss.

Going to cost me in the Uk about £380 minimum so with the cost in mind I’m gonna look for something else- in the mean time eco stick, shim & patience
