    Default Cartridge re tipping

    Can anyone recommend some UK based cartridge re tipping specialists I can use?

    If there are none then I may consider Soundsmith in the USA as I have heard they are very good and very reasonable.

    I recently got a used Troika it was sold retipped with a 0-hours ESCo low mass paratrace.
    Stunning sound, very happy with my purchase, really stated singing after a couple of weeks of use.
    But does come with a recomendation to use 2 to 2.1g instead of the 1.5 to 1.7 standard tracking force.
