    Hi all or y’all,

    Does anyone have a lightly used moving magnet cartridge they might be willing to part with?
    I have this Lounge LCR III I’ve been trying to audition and have been having a BIG issue with a new Grado Green 2. First a channel imbalance, then I snapped the cantilever off futzing with it, then I bought a Grado Blue stylus and now the left channel is completely dead. Needles to say, I’m not looking for a Grado.
    PayPal?

    Maybe, I’ll drop you a PM.

    Is the clock on the site wrong on your end too?

    I show this answered and sent yesterday but I sent it today.

    Hey Mike.....I'll do my best to get time this weekend to look through the cartridge drawers.

    I'm sure there might be something in there that you might be able to use. :)

    Good offer! Better than most would expect.

    I took Tim @Try1256 up on his offer. I sold a TON of these as a HiFi sales guy in the 70’s and you’re right @J-ROB a very good sounding cart.

    Just FYI, Needle Doctor did the right thing and replaced the Grado Green which had my Blue stylus on it. Turns out it did have a dead left channel. It’s on its way back.

    But @TubeHiFiNut, David I’m still on the prowl for what you might have in that cartridge drawer if you have some time and the spirit moves you. ;)

    Took me right back to the 70s but without the hair.

    i was hoping the M91 would wake up a few dormant follicles, however no luck...

    Very enjoyable cart nonetheless.

    @J-ROB - The M91ED was my first "real" phono cartridge. :)

    Table was a Pioneer PL12D. :)

    Still have the hair......it's just a LOT shorter. ;)

    @MikeT. - I'll dig through the cartridge drawers this weekend. :)

    @MikeT. - ADD strikes again. Got sidetracked.....so unlike me.

    Anyway, MM cartridges in the infamous "cartridge bins"..... ;)

    Brand new A-T 3600L. Conical stylus (big surprise ;) ). Tracks 1.5g - 3g. I've used one in the Bogen/Lenco B61 at 3g and it sounds pretty good.

    Say the word and it's on the way. :)
