Shelter 9000 Cartridge

The Shelter 9000 features new technology that improves dynamic range. Both the 7000 and the 9000 are a complete departure from previous Shelter cartridges. The newly designed body includes higher rigidity, improved front-yoke and larger diameter PC-OCC lead wires wound around the redesigned bobbin. The end result is new levels of dynamism and quietness for a smooth and effortless presentation.
