The MC Kupferl L is our classic cartridge.

Categories: ,


Since 1995 we have been marketing our own styluses with ever-increasing success. Our pick-up MC Scheu Kupfer L (Low) is made at Benz Micro in Switzerland. Each pick-up is hand-made, individually measured out and audio tested. The original of the testing protocol is supplied along with the system.


The standard version of MC Scheu Kupfer L is based on the successful Benz Micro Glider S series. This low-output pick-up is equipped with a Namiki micro-ridge diamond stylus tip. We are convinced of the advantages of supplying only low-output variants. The MC Scheu Kupfer L has an output of about 0.4 mV running at a speed of 3.54 cm/s.
