The 'MusicMaker' Phono Cartridge is a high-performance variable reluctance device, employing a proprietory extended contact diamond stylus.

"the extreme harmonics of the treble were brought out with a crispness that came as a shock next to the harshness of many other cartridges. Record after record succumbed to the treatment of the aptly named MusicMaker. It was easy to subconsciously compare the unit's performance favourably with MC cartridges selling at far higher cost... Many MCs do not manage anything like the MusicMaker's Mk II 30Cu figure nor do they give anything like its 4mV 5Cm. It has a sheer listenablity that few competitors combine in the same small body, and that sounds like a bargain at any price." - Richard White, HiFi World, February, 1999, P53.

"The first thing you notice is the solidity and presence it has compared to almost all MC cartridges. There's a sense of unstoppable momentum to music... For anyone using a valve pre-amp like a Conrad-Johnson or early ARC, this cartridge is manna from heaven. Being used to hearing vastly expensive MCs in a system tailored to their balance, the MusicMaker never left me feeling short-changed... never was a product so aptly named; never was an alternative so welcome." - Roy Gregory, Hi-Fi+, May 2000, P52-53.
