Grado Micro Control


The Grado Micro Control tonearm is constructed of the finest gunstock walnut wood and is hand rubbed to bring out the natural beauty of the wood grain.

The metal fittings are of finely machined anodized aluminium - it is precision crafted for maximum accuracy.

It's one piece construction eliminates the possibility of intermittent masses which cause instability and erratic resonances.

Those resonances cause a reduction of dynamic range and a loss of bass response.

The tonearm has four separate leads and a shielded cable and may be used for monaural or stereo playback.


Tracking error: +-8 degrees

Overhang adjustment: +-1/4"

Height adjustment: 1 1/4"

Stylus force adjustment: 7g

Arm length: lateral pivot to stylus 8 7/8"

Overall length: 14"

Offset angle: 24.5 degrees

Pivot friction: under 0.1g at stylus


The Micro Control tonearm is highly adaptable, easy to install and use, and handsome as well as functional.

Needless to say, it will work just as well with monophonic cartridges as with stereo cartridges - High Fidelity October 1958
