Thanks to the many variations in materials available, it is always possible to build a unit to match the personal demands of the customer. With these personalized cartridges the wooden container can mention the name of the customer it has been specially built for. This option is exclusively available for The CANARY, The GRASSHOPPER III series, The GRASSHOPPER IV, The GRASSHOPPER “BEAUTY”, The CONDOR and The COLIBRI versions.

The customer demands/specifications that can be taken into account when building a personalized cartridge for instance are:
The tone-arm used, the preamp and load impedance used, a particular brand of records to be played, the type of music generally played (jazz being more dynamic and classical more spacious and detailed) and other personal/sound preferences.

The GRASSHOPPER III is available in three versions:

CHA Version: A custom handbuilt moving coil cartridge featuring: C = matched crystal Copper coils H = High output (2.25 mV/channel) A = Alnico magnet

SLA Version: A custom handbuilt moving coil cartridge featuring: S = matched crystal Silver coils L = Low output (0.6 mV/channel) A = Alnico magnet

GLA Version: A custom handbuilt moving coil cartridge featuring: G = matched crystal Gold coils L = Low output (0.6 mV/channel) A = Alnico magnet
