Sumiko Oyster Cartridge

By Sumiko


The Sumiko Oyster offers powerful and inexpensive performance. A great entry level cartridge, the Oyster offers budding audiophiles an easy investment in sonic pleasure.

The Oyster may also be used for 78RPM playback, thanks to its rugged generator assembly and conical stylus. The Oyster is Sumiko's entry-level cartridge, but it offers a surprisingly rich sound for a very small investment.
