Two weeks went on my experiments to reduce the moving mass of the cartridge. All attempts failed, I had to return to the cantilever of thick-walled, viscous aluminum and a large stylus with a sharpening cone.
Any change caused rezrnances and distortions. (even thin-walled aluminum of the same diameter and length resonated)
The cartridge has a magnet too large a mass. Light cantilever sounded like sliver glued to the weight))

It is not necessary to change anything in this cartridge, except for the erased styluses :)

I saw this too. Isn't zirconium dioxide a ceramic material?
Grace made cartridges with ceramic cantilevers back in the day.
Grace Level II RC (rare ceramic).....I have one. :D It's fantastic!

Micro Acoustics Stratus S2 purchased NOS from that auction site.
The azimuth is correct, the camera was tilted when I snapped the pic.
It's not out of alignment either. The notch on the Dual sled isn't centered.

I changed the coils in places, turned them 90 degrees and increased the length of one turn 7 times - the buzz ))
AT, catch my idea.

This Chinese $12 wonder keeps proving itself. It's new best buddy, the Little Bear T10 preamp, really makes it roar!

VM95ml a superb cartridge and stylus. I have a Ortofon Black on my main system and this VM95ML could give it a good run for it's money.
