Like the more expensive siblings of the Goldring 1000 series the Goldring G1006 uses a strong one piece body which holds the fixed parts securely in place. The body can be tightly bolted to the headshell for maximum efficiency and optimum sound quality, because it is made from a special type of ultra-rigid, glass reinforced polyester called Pocan.

All Goldring 1000 series cartridges are handbuilt. Goldring G1006 is no exception. 

Goldring G1006 has an elliptical stylus tip. Compared to the ordinary spherical types its shape enables it to more accurately trace the highest frequency record grooves giving it the advantage over ordinary spherical types. The lightweight shank also gives the stylus a lower tip mass than cheaper metal bonded types lending the cartridge an improved transient response.

The Goldring 1000 series has an almost legendary status for delivering some of the best sounds produced by moving magnet cartridges.

All styli in the Goldring 1000 series are interchangeable, so you are able to upgrade this cartridge with more sophisticated ones later on.

We recommend Goldring G1006 for medium to high mass tonearms and we recommend 20 hours of break in period.
