I recently got four old Grados for $13. I don't really need them, but they were hard to resist at that price and I'm sure I'll find a use for them. I also added a couple of very old Pickerings: a U38 (which I've been wanting for years), and a baby blue V-15 which I bought mainly because I like the color. Last but not least, a matched pair of Concordes, whose 1mil styli I plan to use for early mono LPs.

Re: How many cartridges do you have?

For some reason I keep forgetting to add this cartridge to my list, even though I acquired it almost a year ago:

It's a Victor MD-1004, which is a rebadged Audio-Technica AT6 — and possibly the oldest cart in my collection. It's in beautiful condition and sounds very good. It's a big, heavy cartridge... with a big, heavy output! Probably 12mV-15mV if I had to guess. Same time period as the Shure M3D / M7D, and a very similar design, but in my opinion it sounds better than the two Shures.

Am I right with my guess, that the AT150Z has a black cartridge body?
If so, pictures please... [-o< [-o< [-o<

Working or not?I have 14 all together,some are perfect,others need styli or something..I recently found a Shure M97 ERA 4 on an Akai direct drive deck that some one threw out.(I'm not above a dumpster dive). The deck was pristine and went bye-bye via Ebay,but the cartridge was so mint,mounted in a very nice machined aluminum headshell,I couldn't part with it.I am currently listening to a Shure v-15 type 3 that I mounted into a wooden body(Ebay,from Germany),with a Jico SAS stylus. I'd heard that the SAS's can be a tad bright and harsh,but I do not hear it that way at all,just very detailed,over all neutral.
Anybody have a platter mat fetish,like me?Thats a whole other ball of wax,but they can make a big difference! :)
