Sumiko Black Pearl Moving Magnet Cartridge

Payment methods
  • Moving magnet cartridge with spherical stylus
  • High output for easy matching to a phono stage
  • Wide frequency response for a smooth and warm sound

Oyster Series

The Black Pearl utilises the same proven, reliable cartridge body as the internationally renowned Pearl, mounting the same spherical stylus as the Oyster onto an improved cantilever. This unique combination gives a rich musical output, benefiting from greater channel separation and a wide frequency response that pushes the listening experience to the next level.

Offering a notable step-up over the budget Oyster, but still achieving an affordable price-point, the Black Pearl embodies the company's core philosophy of high fidelity sound at any cost.
