Korvet GZM-028                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Extremely rare Korvet GZM-028 cartridge for sale.
This is one of the best cartridge produced by former USSR. When I got it I could not believe that MM cartridge can sound so naturally relaxed. The superior tracking, tight base and magical mids- these are just few words that described  the beauty of this Soviet engineering marble.

The cartridge has beryllium cantilever and special oriented crystal nude diamond. This is real natural diamond, not synthetic like 100% of all modern styluses made of. The cartridge, boxes and mounting ware are in perfect NM condition. The cartridge has just 30 hours on my table and it is MINT. The cartridge loads at 1.2 mV that is unusual for the MM cartridges, but it well compensated with the sonic bliss. All packaging, mounting ware and papers are present.

Output: 1.2mV
Tracking: 1.0-1.5g
Antiskating set: 0.8-1.2g
Load: 47 kOhms
