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 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.
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 Prestige Series by Grado is designed for high output and excellent stability under severe use. A considerable tip mass reduction results in a frequency response to 50 kHz and beyond and tracking forces from 1-2 grams. Acclaimed by experts as virtually the finest pickups in the world at their price. Prestige models available in both 1/2″ mount and P-mount. All styli in the Prestige series are user replaceable.
