Up for your consideration is the Grado Statement phono cartridge. I am the only owner, having purchased it from Music Direct in 2000 for $ 2500.00. Haven't used it in at least 8 years ( guesstimate ), and its been sitting in its box in my cabinet. Worked fine until I stopped using it. Probably 3000 hours on it. Two reasons to purchase this. 1). Someone who wants to use it and plans to re-tip in the future. 2). Someone who wants a brand new Grado Statement 2, which retails for $ 3,500.00. The trade-in price for a new Statement 2 is $ 2,350.00 for a savings of $ 1,150.00. So for the person who wants a new Statement 2, you buy this for $ 400.00, trade it in to Grado, and save $ 750.00 off the list price of $ 3500.00. I checked with Grado and no proof of purchase of the old cartridge is required to trade it in. Just send this one in and 2.75K and they send you a brand new Statement 2. Kind of like getting a $ 750.00 coupon.
Mounting screws are not original. I have no idea what I did with the stylus guard, so obviously its not included. Shipping on me. thanks for looking. Please note: This will also be offered on Ebay. It will go to the first purchaser on either site.
