Amazing 100% Functional Rare and highly prized Shure V15-Type III complete with retipped original Shure VN35HE stylus. For many classic vinylists, there is no greater achievement in the world of cartridge manufacturing than the Shure V15, and did V15 aficionados, the V15 Type III HE represents the high point of the entire V15 line for its superior sound, neutrality and tracking. For them, it represents to this day the pinnacle of cartridge engineering and vinyl enjoyment. These are hard to find even when broken, and expensive when found.There are many wonderful aftermarket styli available with the full bells and whistles, but there is nothing like an original stylus for sound quality. The original suspension contains the magic and while the few aftermarket styli available may sound as good as the original to some listeners, none of them will track as well at 1g. Most need 1.5g VTF to work well. This specific model is 100% functional and has been fully tested and is performing above spec with 30dB channel separation at 1000Hz using 1g VTF tracking force. Cartridge also shows 0dB channel imbalancewhich is well within original spec. Rest assured you will have the original Shure V15 Type III HE sound and performance.
The cantilever is a mild upgrade to the original being gently tapered. Look closely at photos for condition. Images are of actual item you will receive. Cartridge comes complete with hardware and tool as shown. Tip Diamond Elliptical (0.2 mil x 0.7 mils) HE diamond was an upgrade item, and so there are no specs for the HE.
Stylus pressure 0.75 to 1.25 grams. Compliance 30 x 10 (-6) cm/dyne of force. Separation of channels 28 dB at 1,000 Hz. Frequency range 10 - 25,000 Hz. Dc resistance 1,350 ohms.Output level 3.5mV at 1,000 Hz - 5 cm/sec peak velocity. I stand behind all my retipped and/or repaired cartridges, styli and retipping services. Check my feedback if youve got any lingering doubts. The fact is, I can make your cartridge sound as good or better than new because I run a very tight QC regimen.
