Description Technical Specs
 
The newly redesigned Blue1 and Red1 have had their coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%. The Blue1 and Red1 models use a four piece OTL cantilever technology, standard oxygen free wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing. The Red1 model is selected from the Blue1 production run and meets higher test specifications. Approximately 10% of the production run will meet these standards and become Red1 models.

I've been using Grado cartridges since 1979. As always I remain a loyal customer. The quality is unmatched.

Reviewer: Al Urbaitis from Albuquerque, NM United States  
The grade bleu was installed  on a Dennon Dp 31L turntable.

The grade bleu works well,  minimum installation fuss, excellent performance, superb value.

Excellent Customer Service December 18, 2015
Reviewer: Jeff Schadt from Plano, TX United States  
The occasion was readying my Yamaha P450 turntable to be given to my son for a Christmas gift.  I'd forgotten that I stored the turntable with a missing stylus on a 70's vintage Grado Blue cartridge.  Customer service assessed the situation via email based on photos sent on a Saturday, recommending replacement with the present-day iteration of the same cart.  New cart arrived before the end of the next week.  Old vinyl sounds much better than I remembered.

Best $120 I have spent is such a long time November 23, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from NC, United States  
I am very glad I listened to a friend who convinced me to make this purchase. Clarity and sound are crisp and amazing. My only concern was the packaging. The small Grado box that hold the cart was sort of bouncing around inside the much larger shipping box. Packing materials are much needed for an instrument like this. Please consider using more secure packaging materials.
