The Audio Technica AT3600L is probably the world's most popular cartridge. It is used by many manufacturers and comes pre-installed as their cartridge of choice with many turntables. It has been time tested and proven by decades of use for quality, durability, affordability and great sound.
The Audio Technica AT3600L is perfect as a great sounding spare or replacement for worn, damaged or low quality pre-installed cartridges. It is also ideal if you can't find a replacement stylus for your record player. A worn or chipped stylus sounds bad, because it will not sit in the grove properly and can eventually damage your records. You don't have to risk the damage to your vinyl and waste time searching for a stylus for your current cartridge. Simply replace the whole cartridge for the same or less money!
