Keep it in mind...
  • Standard 1/2" Mount — The most common mounting style wherein the cartridge is secured to the tonearm with 2 vertical screws and with 4 colored headshell lead-wires attached to the rear pins.
  • Plug (P-) Mount — More common in the 80s & 90s, p-mount cartridges plug directly into the tonearm with 4 standardized pins, usually with 1 horizontal screw through the side for rigidity.
  • Sounding Better Than Ever

    The Grado Prestige2 series of cartridges features a resonance-optimized chassis and higher-purity copper wiring in the coils. Sonically, they exhibit better low-level resolution and heightened overall transparency - a noticeable improvement over their predecessors - while maintaining the signature Grado sound that we've all come to adore. Furthermore, on the Prestige2 series, Grado purports "excellent tonal balance, dynamics and realism for a most rewarding reproduction of vocals and acoustic instruments."

    You Deserve Prestige

    The Prestige Series by Grado is designed for high output and excellent stability under severe use. A considerable tip mass reduction results in a frequency response to 50 kHz and beyond and tracking forces from 1-2 grams. Acclaimed by experts as virtually the finest pickups in the world at their price. Prestige models available in both 1/2" mount and P-mount. All styli in the Prestige series are user replaceable.

    Silver2 & Gold2

    The newly redesigned Silver2 and Gold2 have had their coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%. The Silver2 and Gold2 models use a four piece OTL cantilever technology, ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing. The Gold2 model is selected from the Silver2 production run and meets higher test specifications. Approximately 5% of the production run meet these standards and become Gold2 models.
