Sumiko Amethyst MM Cartridge

The jewel among the MMs

In the resonance-optimized housing of the new Oyster pickups (Moonstone, Olympia & Rainier), Sumiko has further reduced the output voltage for the Amethyst in order to reduce background noise. The needle features a naked line contact cut diamond and couldn't be more sensitive. It reaches every nook and cranny of your record's groove and processes that information with extreme precision. The amethyst can easily keep up with comparable MC designs. Shockingly smooth and as transparent as can be, it skilfully traces even the most complicated passages of your LP collection. Expect effortless dynamics, depth and clarity against a black background, impeccably realistic impermanence, and images that protrude from the sonic image yet remain naturally positioned.

Handmade in Japan

From Oyster to Reference, every Sumiko pickup is handcrafted in Yokohama, Japan - near the waters where the eponymous oysters live. Sumiko selects the finest materials by ear, which together produce a performance that has enlightened generations of listeners. Each design is thoroughly tested until perfect. Production is then carried out by world-class craftsmen with a shared eye for precision and quality.

Suitable for light and medium-heavy tonearms. The Amethyst can be equipped with a Stylus RS78 for playing shellac records.
