For Sale: Pickering U38 Cartridge with New Stylus

Post by BMRR » 20 Jan 2019 21:08

I'm reducing the size of my cartridge collection, and unfortunately my gorgeous Pickering U38 must go. This is an amazing cartridge that deserves a home where it will be used and appreciated!

Included is a new old stock D3807T stylus. This stylus has only been used for a few minutes so I could verify that it sounds great. (It does!)

If you're not familiar with the U38, it's a stereo moving magnet cartridge from 1959, designed by Walter O. Stanton of Pickering & Co. It's notable for having an ultra wide soundstage, flat frequency response from 20 to 20,000 Hz, and it's hermetically shielded with mu-metal for complete and total rejection of electromagnetic interference. An exceptionally well-designed and well-built stereo phono cartridge, not just by 1959 standards but by today's standards as well!

You can bid on it here, or choose the Buy It Now option for $79.99:

(I also have a new old stock D3827 stylus — a nude 2.7mil tip for 78 RPM — which I will be selling separately. Please contact me if you're interested in this.)

I never heard back from Robert, so if anyone else is interested in buying the D3827 stylus, please contact me, otherwise I'll be listing it on eBay in a few days.
