This moving magnet cartridge redefines clarity, boasting a single-piece chassis, advanced fixing formation, and a micro-elliptical nude diamond stylus for unparalleled sonic excellence.

Precision Redefined in Audio Artistry

Unveiling a paradigm shift in musical precision and definition, the Dark Sabre transcends expectations. Leveraging advancements from its successful sibling (Sabre MM), this cartridge boasts an innovative fixing formation, a unified single-piece chassis, and an enhanced profile for optimized weight distribution and surface traction. 

Featuring a micro-elliptical nude diamond stylus and telescopic cantilever, the Dark Sabre positions itself at the forefront of moving magnet cartridge technology. With its groundbreaking design and cutting-edge features, it redefines the standards of audio excellence, promising an unparalleled listening experience that resonates with the essence of pure, refined sound.


  • Aluminum alloy body CNC precision machined from solid then hard anodized black.
  • The low-mass generator utilizes an Alnico magnet with a low-mass cross coil made of pure
    virgin copper wires.
  • The low-mass generator is mounted into the high-mass body using a Quad-Point Contact
    with Four Stainless’ Spike’ Screws for optimum support and control of unwanted mechanical
  • The body is mass-tuned to the generator for optimum support of unwanted energy
  • The telescopic aluminum tube cantilever utilizing two different aluminum materials –
    maximizes stiffness without a massive high Q peak.
  • Nude Micro Elliptical single crystal diamond stylus tip for maximum tracking ability without
    compromising the high-frequency response or increasing surface noise.
  • Square shank diamond assembly maximizes alignment precision, consistency, and rigidity.
  • Alignment ridge on the front top that assists mounting Sabre to any Vertere tonearm.
  • Three specifically designed contact points CNC machined into the top of the body that
    provide the exact mechanical coupling required.
  • Wideband frequency response of below 14Hz to above 28kHz
  • Output of 4.3mV will provide a lifelike dynamic range with depth and precision.
