You Deserve Prestige
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. All styli in the Prestige series are user replaceable.
The newly redesigned Gold 3 had his coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of his generating system has been reduced by 17%. The Gold 3 model uses a four piece OTL cantilever technology, ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing. The Gold 3 model is selected from the Silver 3 production run and meets higher test specifications. Approximately 5% of the production run meet these standards and become Gold 3 models.
