        Product description

        Tuscany Gold Moving Coil Cartridge:

        The best MC phono cartridge Gold Note ever made 

        The Italian high-quality exotic design of the Tuscany Series is made to satisfy the most demanding ears for an uncompromising musical pleasure.

        These phenomenal cartridges feature an extra-thin Micro Ridge diamond stylus-tip developed by Adamant-Namiki, the world’s most famous Diamond stylus manufacturer. With its exclusive cut, it guarantees a deep vinyl groove contact like no others. Its thin and long gold-plated pin connectors enable an ideal contact with the arm cinch to avoid energy dispersion and improve grounding for a surprisingly silent background that reveals at its very best every single musical detail.

        Paired with the B-7 Ceramic tonearm and Mediterraneo turntable, it represents the unique true High-End analogue set-up exclusively handmade in Italy.

        The Tuscany cartridges are available in two models, Gold and Red which feature precious pure silver and copped coils.

        Gold Note Machiavelli Moving Coil Cartridge

        Machiavelli's extra rigid cantilever handles a high precision Line Contact diamond in the Gold model and a Micro Elliptical diamond in the Red model, both developed in collaboration with Ogura the inventor of the Line-Contact diamond shape.

        The diamond tip is mechanically inserted and blocked into the new cantilever that is consequently handled by a special pipe to increase the structure rigidity.

        The Machiavelli Series can be easily matched with any active phono preamp for MC cartridges, without the need of Step-Up transformers.

        The cantilever suspension takes advantage of an elastic and non-deformable harmonic steel spring, rigidly blocked to eliminate vibrations thus enhancing the tracking capability.

        With thin and long gold-plated pin connectors, Machiavelli is designed to connect perfectly with arm cinches, reducing energy dispersion and improving grounding for an ideal music background necessary to enjoy even the smaller details of your records.

        Donatello 

        The main design behind the new Donatello MC cartridge was to engineer the best sounding cartridge of its category enabling a solid machined aluminum body, light enough to be handled by every tone-arms. The results exceeded expectations!

        After two years of continuous research, here is Donatello: a sophisticated, computer designed body made of machined aluminum.

        Weighing only 7gram, it's perfectly damped to help the cantilever achieve the best tracking ability.
        Donatello's ultra-rigid cantilever handles a high precision Micro Elliptical diamond exclusively developed in collaboration with Adamant - Namiki and designed for top audio performance.

        Empowered by technology 

        As our flagship cartridges, Donatello's diamond tip is mechanically inserted and locked into a long, stiffened aluminum cantilever, handled in a special titanium telescopic seat to increase structural rigidity.

        Like GN top class models, Donatello features long gold-plated pin connectors designed to connect perfectly with arm cinches, reducing energy dispersion and improving grounding for an ideal music background that will let you enjoy even the smaller details of your music.

        Donatello Red features high internal impedance & gain levels so that it can be easily matched with MM phono preamp while the Donatello Gold can be driven correctly by MC preamps, without the need of any Step-Up transformers.

        * All Donatello cartridges come with serial number indelibly printed in the engraved area at the top of the body

        Vasari - The new Moving Magnet Cartridge

        Vasari combines style and technology: the innovative and beautiful design of this cartridge, realized with the help of computer modeling, has been created to achieve the peak performance an MM can deliver. Its high dampening structure, made of quality materials, and its ultra-rigid Aluminum cantilever make Vasari a superb tracker to let the custom diamond tip, exclusively developed on our specifics, extract all the information from the vinyl groove.

        The first step for audiophiles

        To deliver even the finest details, the cantilever has been securely and directly inserted into the metal body.

        The result is enhanced rigidity of the cartridge and better tracking performances, achieving wider and smoother bandwidth response.

        Vasari completes our range of cartridges: it is without any doubt the best MM model we have ever made.
