    Default FS: Decca London Gold Cartridge.

    ***SOLD***

    It was retipped by John Wright (Decca) in September 2014 and hardly used since then.

    It comes with original packaging & accessories.

    I’m looking for 395 included next day delivery.

    If you have any questions please ask.
    Many thanks.
    Mauro

    It's a real shame, are you not into dynamic music.. why ever sell a London gold ????? Perhaps your arm is not up to it ???

    Sorry, no offence...but of owner of this fab cartridge. John Wright rebuild of the fabulous London gold..... is there any other that could match?... I doubt it.

    Peter

    Think again.... where are you going from here?

    If you've not heard one, you'll be stunned at what it does with the NS-1000 speakers. It should work OK in the Alphason, might need a bit more mass at the headshell, not much though.

    Which stylus profile does your Decca have Peter. I have a Blue which I am thinking of having retipped with a line contact. John Wright is only 20 mins away from my house so easy to pop in and drop it off!
