1 Review

Discontinued by Shure. Currently unavailable.

Revived exactly the same as the original, this companion to the M44-7 provides an ideal balance between skip resistance and accuracy of sound reproduction for entertainment purposes. The M44G is a versatile performance needle, appropriate for both intensive scratching and mixing.

With a tracking force of 0.75 to 1.5 grams, and a frequency response which is essentially flat from 20 to 20,000 Hz, the M44G produces a vibrant, high-definition sound.

With the same unique Shure Type S cantilever as used on the M44-7, the M44G is a highly reliable performer, which is also easy on your vinyl.

    Very musical


    I have accidentaly aquired M44-7 with a turntable and was immediately blown away by the musicality of this cartridge. And then I heard a M44g, which, along with an exceptional musicality, had more refinment in high tones, more detail and less boomy bass. I fell in love with this cartridge immediately. After various Audio-technica AT95E and AT440 which were clinical and analytical and musical at all the M44g is a pure music lover's cartridge.
