For Sale: Grado Statement Master 1 Cartridge. This is the low-output version, 0.5 mV requiring a high-gain phono stage or head-amp/transformer in front of your MM stage. It is a lovely, well extended cartridge with the famous Grado midrange. I am selling because I've been trying a lot of cartridges of late and simply have more than I can use.
I am the second owner. I bought it from the original owner as part of package with a VPI Scout II turntable. (Local sale, not shipped.) The original owner bought the cartridge along with the table from a dealer in Chicago. He used both for ~6 months before I bought it. He sold to raise money for school. I used the cartridge for ~3 months before letting it sit for another ~6 months. I put less than 200 hours on the cart, that is a conservative over-estimate. Its in great shape with no issues. I did not have an accidents with the cartridge and it was used with cleaned records. The buyer will get many years of use.
