I've contacted a few on that list in the vain hope of bringing a Shinon Red with a broken tie wire back to life. None could help, but there are few names on that list I haven't tried, so there may still be hope. Thank-you! This is an excellent resource, which hopefully will continue to grow

Might be worth adding EMT to that list - there are a lot of EMT-based cartridges out there which they can repair. They've done Tubaphon, Roksan, Thorens and EMT carts for me.

It's also good to see Goldring already in the list who I've used recently with great results, although there are one or two in there I'd be much less certain about.

Collux, thank you for including me on the “worldwide list” of vinyl masters! )))
I want to increase the list of masters by my friend from Lithuania: Darius Valiunas. This man is completely swallowed by vinyl, sound and everything connected with it. His work is magnificent, look at the coils that he wraps in his workshop, this is perfection itself!

Darus can be easily found at: http://www.cartridgeretip.com/

In fact, this list is very conditional. Most likely this is a list of masters that you can reach with your hand.
There are such great countries as China and India about which we know little. I saw magnificent products from China in a ceramic shell - the Tiger.
Do not forget about Japan. This is a camp in which, despite the dominance of programmers)), analog sound is still being cultivated.

Nice to see some more retippers/rebuilders being identified.
Dimitri's comment re: Indian/Chinese & Japanese artisans is no doubt quite valid.
It's great to see examples of high quality work of which some constructors are both very capable and proud.
