Clearaudio Gamma

Post by Misko78 » 15 Mar 2019 08:16

Hey all, I just got this Clearaudio Gamma for ~50€ with its cantilever repaired-retiped. The job look awful with a part of new cantilever sleeved onto the original one. I cant find anything about Gamma i bought, there is another model that looks totally different than the one i have. Does anyone have any info about this one? I would like to repair this one so i'm considering sending it to SS, what cantilever option do you suggest for this cartridge?

viewtopic.php?f=65&t=45749 is about all I can find on the gamma, but you have a later model by the look of it. The original was hollow boron. No idea what this was.

Sleeving is not necessarily bad if done correctly and many cartridges come from the factory that way. Have you actually listened to this yet. It might be fine and good for many years before you have to worry.
