All Sumiko cartridges from Oyster to the Reference series are crafted by hand in Yokohama Japan. 

The Sumiko Songbird High Output MC is part of the Reference Series and has a beautiful open-body anchored to a highly rigid, resonance-optimized headblock. This is the high output version, which means that you can partner the Sumiko Songbird High Output MC with any MM phono stage.

Sumiko engineers have selected by ear the finest materials and each design is thoroughly auditioned until perfected. Production is then executed by world-class cartridge makers with a collective eye for precision & quality.

The sound is clear and ultra-musical with just the right degree of warmth, dynamic and firm bass, Songbird Low offers an even deeper soundstage with greater reach width-wise

Sumiko Songbird High Output MC has the universal ½”-mount and threaded inserts in the cartridge body, which enable the cartridge to be mounted to the headshell with just two screws.

We recommend around 20 hours break-in.

Don’t hesitate to contact our support team if you need help to pick the right cartridge for your needs and preferences.
