Seated atop the entry-level range of classic Oysters, our classic Pearl phono cartridge has been dazzling listeners for decades. Physically compatible with most tonearms on the market and a perfect fit for any MM system, it’s a reminder that one doesn’t have to exhaust their budget to achieve next-level sound quality. Dynamic yet smooth and incredibly musical, it’s an evenly-balanced cartridge with enticing highs, decisive mids & deep, well-rounded bass. Pearl introduces our 0.3 x 0.7mil elliptical stylus, heightening detail retrieval, adding brilliance & improving on the stereo imaging of its sibling Black Pearl.
Over 40 years and worldwide, our classic Oyster Series has left thousands of captivated listeners in its wake. The series is comprised of our Oyster (MM), Black Pearl (MM), Pearl (MM), Blue Point No. 2 (HOMC) & Blue Point Special EVO III (H & LOMC) — each capable of delivering a degree of refinement you have yet to hear from your turntable system. The cartridges have established themselves over decades as high-value gems that dependably out-perform listeners’ expectations for their dollar. Marked by honesty in analog reproduction, our Oyster Series remains true to what’s in the groove, impressively and convincingly voiced to bring you closer to your music.
From Oyster to Reference, each Sumiko phono cartridge is crafted by hand in Yokohama, Japan — near the waters where our namesake Oysters dwell. We’ve selected by ear the finest materials that combine to deliver performance that has enlightened generations of listeners. Each design is thoroughly auditioned until perfected. Production is then executed by world-class cartridge makers with a collective eye for precision & quality. The result is a full horizon of cartridges eager to introduce themselves to your analog system — we firmly believe there’s a perfect cartridge for you here.

We try to be as accurate as possible, but we use a service to get images for the vinyl records we sell. Sometimes, this leads to the image showing a special colored vinyl edition of a record when we only have the standard black vinyl version. If you are looking for a specific color or product version, please contact us to verify before placing your order.
