The new MC Scheu SL cartridge is a fine supplement to our family of stylus pick-ups. It is based on the well known Benz Micro ACE S. Each pick-up is hand-made, individually measured out and audio tested.


The low-output pick-up MC Scheu SL is equipped with a Namiki micro-ridge diamond stylus tip. We are convinced of the advantages of supplying only low-output variants. The MC Scheu SL has an output of about 0.4 mV running at a speed of 3.54 cm/s.
