SHURE HI FI PHONO CARTRIDGES AND STYLI

   Since 1958, when Shure introduced the world's first successful stereo phonograph cartridge, it has been recognized worldwide as the leader in the development and production of high-performance cartridges and styli.

   Shure Hi-Fi cartridges are distinguished for their high groove tracking ability and warm, natural sound reproduction. Each cartridge comes with a user guide, mounting hardware, stylus guard and warranty. All models employ the low-mass, high output moving magnet structure invented by Shure.

1/ Note that KAB uses generic replacements only when the originals cease to be available.
The generic will fit properly though may not offer the same performance as the original. This is especially true when replacing a MR or HE stylus with a generic E stylus.
