Musicmaster mk III
Produsent: Cartridge Man
We have now moved on and made a rather dramatic change; enter the MusicMaster which takes us another step closer to the original performance.
In my review of The Cartridge Man MusicMaker Classic a dozen years ago, I concluded that it was a masterpiece of phono cartridge design. Considering the improvement the new MusicMaster delivers over the classic Classic, perhaps Gregory should be more correctly called a Grand Master. Certainly his cartridges reveal the hand of an artist over that of a craftsman/technician. Since all The Cartridge Man phono cartridges are hand-built, older MusicMakers can be re-built and brought up to MusicMaster spec. Purchasing a new MusicMaster off the shelf might require a slight wait, as demand has been very high.
The Cartridge Man MusicMaster is a true “ultra” cartridge in every sense of the word. As a tool for unleashing the art in all great music I find it unequalled. I would like to publicly thank Leonard Gregory for his magnificent service to all music lovers. I can only give it the ultimate recommendation.
