The newly redesigned Black1 and Green1 have had their coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%. The Black1 and Green1 models use a three piece OTL cantilever technology, standard oxygen free wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted in a brass bushing. The Green1 model is selected from the Black1 production run and meets higher test specifications. Approximately 15% of the production run will meet these standards and become Green1 models.

Restored our vintage turntable
We resurrected our vintage Sony direct-drive turntable but it didn’t sound right. After some troubleshooting help from Turntable Needles, we narrowed it to the cartridge. It arrived carefully packed with instructions. Installation required attention to detail as the screws and wire leads are small. I had to re-use the original screws due to the size of the holes in my turntable arm. Sounds like a million bucks -- much richer than our digital tracks of the same music.

I reccomend
I like it! The sound of my turntable changed vastly. The bass is deeper, sound in channels is in balance. Music got some new shine. Money quality ratio in great.

Grado Black1 Prestige
The first one had no right channel, Turntable exchanged it with no problems and the second cartridge sounds great. I'm very happy with the rich tones. My player is an old Yamaha going thru a newish Onkyo. For the price I would not hesitate to buy this item.
