I have no idea. It was ToTL for a couple of years so possibly not a huge number. All I can say is maybe 2 a year come up on ebay.

Is it me or do those coils not look the most nicely wound for an expensive cartridge?

The cartridge is intentionally assembled carelessly, probably in order to emphasize its manual assembly!?
Lyra is also assembled by hand, but this is perfection itself.

I like the color co-ordinated headshells... 8). I've decided to use two colours: black for Signet, silver for Audio Technica :).

hehehe... what were you expecting me to say... :D
Ok, for now, I don't know... haven't compared them yet... :D

But it might be a good opportunity to compare Microridge to FGS...
Mine has Boron / Microridge on it...

At a wild guess you will find yours more 'meaty'.

You know me well enough... I will be completely open and transparent with sharing my findings when I have the time to compare the two...
But I'm feeling spoilt right now with the luxury of two Rohmanns at my immediate reach... :D
