The newly redesigned Black1 and Green1 have had their coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%. The Black1 and Green1 models use a three piece OTL cantilever technology, standard oxygen free wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted in a brass bushing. The Green1 model is selected from the Black1 production run and meets higher test specifications. Approximately 15% of the production run will meet these standards and become Green1 models.

Grado Prestige Black - Perfect! April 14, 2016
Reviewer: John Eric Ellison from Manchester, CT United States  
For my return to vinyl I chose Grado Prestige Black as my main cartridge to use on the AT-LP-120 USB Turntable. Bought the Black Technica shell and was ready for the cartridge when it arrived. The AT95E AT, sounded great. But, I wanted more. The 10-50 Hz, tracking 1.5 Grams was the beauty for me. Now, I have the AT shell and cartridge mounted in the rear right spot set for just that storage purpose. All the bell and whistles ignited a surge of vinyl revival from my soul and I began gobbling up some of the best 180-200 Gram pressings I could find from my local Vinyl outlet. There are so many to choose from now. Nirvana, Melvin's, I brought out my Yamaha RX V2090 AMP. And, classic Sony MDR - V6 headphones and let heaven come to me. I'm listening to all of my Prog Rock favorites; including Nursery Crime and Foxtrot on 180 gram new vinyl. Let the new vinyl age begin with Dave Grado point and center! Five by Five. HOOAH!

Replaced old pickering cartridge January 14, 2016
Reviewer: cash rouse from Helena, MT United States  
The wire schematic wasn't too easy to decipher. The tiny nuts and bolts hard to work with. No suggestions or instructions were included to install cartridge. Sounds good though...but not much better than 30 year old pickering.
