The Concorde Music series of cartridges is a combined headshell and cartridge design suitable for use in an SME type removable headshell equipped S shaped tonearm. The Music series is intended for hi-fi applications only, unlike the DJ models which have been housed in the same Concorde shaped body for the last few decades, so please don't be confused by their cosmetic similarities.

There are many similarities with this range and the 2M series of Ortofon cartridges and the different levels (designated by the colour) follow a similar progression. These cartridges produce a very healthy 6mV output, helping to reduce noise from your MM phono stage.

The Black is the fourth model up in the range and features a nude Shibata diamond, which due to its shape excels with detail retrieval, even handedness and extended frequency extremes.

The styli are interchangeable in the range, so you can upgrade/downgrade the cartridge just by changing the stylus (which are available on the MM stylus section of this website) as the main body of the cartridge is identical throughout the range.
