I received a Pickering V15 AT1 Cartridge with the Dual 1219 that I bought a earlier this year. It seemed to be working fine for playing some junk records(the stylus didn't look good), so I put it away until I got a new stylus.
I brought it back out to play a beat up record and it seemed that one of the channels had gone out. I bought a cheap stylus from the bay to see if it was the stylus........ no go. The right channel is still out.
I'm still not giving up, I'm going to try it in a different headshell on another tt. I really like this cartridge and as you can see I'm having a hard time giving it up!
Now my questions are:
Is it a goner?
Is there someone who works on this type of cartridge and can fix it that i can send it to?
Am I just plain out of luck and should look for another Pickering V15 AT cart?
Thanks in advance.
