I'm glad that someone posted about Glanz cartridges. In the early 80s, I bought a Glanz MFG31E. I don't think I had heard of Glanz but the shop didn't have what I was looking for and the saleman suggested a Glanz. I don't recall my detailed impressions of it but I know that I was satisfied with it and it served me well in my 'University' Hi-Fi system. I still have that cartridge today, but it spent 20+ years a pencil case full of odds and ends, and the stylus broke off. When I revived my interest in vinyl, I looked for a replacement stylus but there is little trace of Glanz themselves and nobody seems to make generic replacements for the MFG range.
However, I recently found an MFG51E stylus, which fits the cartridge body I have. Trying it out on my Pioneer PL-12D, my first impressions were a nice, warm, well-balanced sound, probably similar to the Shure M75ED. Further listening has revealed a clean, very engaging sound - almost addictive, as said at the start of this thread. And I have found that it excels with 45s, particularly 12" singles - I have never heard such clarity from my 12" singles before. Perhaps it likes the larger grooves of the 45s. For those interested, I have put a photo of the cartridge in action in my gallery.
A little research revealed that Astatic also made very similar cartridges, but this doesn't seem to help in terms of stylus supply. It's a pity that Jico don't make replacement styli for the MFG range.
