S-Series Cartridge Details

The S-Series is Tri-Art's entry level cartridge. It has been designed to avoid using non-musical materials such as plastic and pressed tin bodies. The cartridge is hand assembled with a solid bamboo body and guard. The use of local sheep wool and a special crushed nepheline finish (part of the quartz family) suspended in resin, is carefully assembled to produce a natural sounding cartridge. The result is a smooth and quiet, extremely musical, tonally neutral sound. While the S-Series cartridge was designed with the budget conscious audiophile in mind, the listener is rewarded with performance usually reserved for higher priced cartridges.
