integrated two-sided crystal cartridge

Shure model 901D


The Model 901D Turnover Phonograph Pickup is designed to reproduce standard records and the various types of fine-groove long playing records.

Model 901D uses a turnover mechanism and the new Shure two-sided Vertical Drive crystal cartridge.

The crystal element is a bimorph, Rochelle Salt unit.

By combination of this highly compliant cartridge and the Shure die-cast aluminium pickup arm, an extremely low needle for proper record tracking has resulted.


Finish: Gray hammer enamel

Code word: Ruzel

Lead length: 14"

Arm rest: Included

Net weight: 4oz

Needles: Replaceable, long-life, included
