MC cartridges are rare and SUPERior in performance to standard MM (Moving Magnet) cartridges. If this needle is above your budget for getting your pioneer turntable back up and running, please look in our cartridges category under 1/2" mount cartridges. Most any 1/2" mount MM Cartridge will substitute. Some will get you back up and running at a much lower cost. Keep in mind that the overall sound quality will be lower than what you might be used to from the Pioneer MC cartridge. • The difference, as found in the radio button menu above, in our opinion between the original and the aftermarket is minimal in reference to the 3MC & 4MC. However the 401mc is elliptical tipped whereas the aftermarket replacements are all conical.
