These were real bargain cartridges when you look at the prices of other
companies cartridges..I think although good sellers,,if AT can charge way more for new equivalents..They may just do that..The AT 95e and AT91 may have their days numbered
after 35 years..We never thought certain Shures would disappear either..
I think also 3x7 tips are easier to get than 4x7..Smaller contact point,,same downforce,,
I'm not so sure that is a good thing..Increased wear as far as I know..
I purchased a couple of at95e's a few months back from Amazon.
Both are tipped 4x7.
As far as the 4x7 vs 3x7 arguments, I doubt anyone can tell the difference, nor should they worry about it.
