Manticore Musician


Manticore's entry level tonearm, the Musician can be recognised by its black anodised finish - Magician arms are polished aluminium.

The medium mass Manticore Musician tonearm is suitable for most commercially available cartridges and is fitted with 1.3mm gold plated tags to maximise compatibility. Internal and external cabling are of our own design.

The arm will generally be supplied with counterweights in the 150-160g range, but we hold stocks of weights up to 180g and other weights are available to order.

Close tolerance engineering and the judicious use of engineering adhesives ensure a highly rigid structure that optimise cartridge support.


Effective length: 227.48mm
