Note: This PIONEER PC-401MC cartridge is N.O.S. (New Old Stock)
We have confirmed it is 100% new and has never touched vinyl, however, the box is a bit 'shopworn' from sitting in drawers for decades and the only accessories included are the 2 screws needed for attachment.

A forgotten GEM from Pioneer
This cartridge is an outstanding High Output Moving Coil. Before you spend the HIGH PRICE on an Ortofon X1-MC, MC-1 Turbo, or the Benz MC20E2, you owe it to yourself to check out this classic from Pioneer! It weighs only 3 grams so you will need a weight plate for most arms. Performance will blow your mind for the price! I LOVE IT!
