modifying a phono cartridge

Post by mierock on Sun Dec 25, 2016 1:04 am

anybody that has experience modifying any cartridge?

share some experiences, steps and precautions

I will post some images of my at95 black body with at92e (atn3472) stylus. i will try some other variation soon, still waiting for the stylus.

I started this route when i bought a cart without stylus from one uncle for rm10. my initial inspection shows it is an at95 but the color is grey. after further inspection it is a black body so i grabbed it. I knew that at95 has a great motor but the frequency response 20 - 20khz (0.4x0.7 mils). read some opinion from vinyl engine so i bought an atn92 stylus, which i knew the frequency response is 15Hz to 37 Khz (0.3 x 0.7 mils). after some carving, put it on and compare with original at95 and at92e. i tried a wood body to replace the plastic but it is a soft wood (pine). still need some time to carve my pokok serai kayu wood as the cart body. I really like it alot. sounded comparable to my denon dl110. does not sound anything like at95 at all, especially with wood body. at95 stylus on at95 black body is much better than regular at95e. i end up selling my at95 cart but keep my at92e.


 i still waiting for my 0.2x 0.7 mils. I dont dare to try shibata or other expensive stylus as the cost is not economical anymore. it is better to put on my mc cart.

This is my aluminum bodied Shure M55E and AT95E with wood mounting. 
Also planning to make a full wooden body as well, from ebony (if I can find a way to cut it!)

the body of at95 (without stylus) and black body. the black body has an aluminium body whereas the normal one has plastic body. i misplaced my wood-shell as i am redo it using a hardwood instead of pine. pine is easy to carve.
