The AT33MONO is made specifically for use on mono systems. It has a horizontal coil, and so in principle only generates electricity horizontally.

The AT33MONO produces sound to a very high quality because it does not easily pick up unnecessary strain components from distorted or scratched records, producing audio that you couldn't possibly get from a stereo cartridge.

The AT33MONO also has appropriate compliance in the vertical direction, so will not cause damage to stereo records. Enjoy those well-known classic mono records of yesteryear with the AT33MONO.

  • Mono cartridge compatible with stereo playback systems.
  • Elliptical stylus chip and hard duralumin cantilever.
  • 10O middle impedance specification.
  • PCOCC coil prevents crystal gain boundary formation (in transmission direction).
  • Strong body stabilized by a rigid body set-up.
  • "Hanenite" anti-vibration rubber eliminates unnecessary vibrations.
  • High-quality sound / Brass fastening screw.
