Sabre MM Cartridge


Sabre is a Hi-End Moving Magnet Phono Cartridge designed and hand-crafted to exacting standards at Vertere in the UK to ensure an uncompromised musical experience.


Sabre’s body is precision machined from solid Aluminium alloy with its final mass perfectly tuned to the generator for ideal support and control of unwanted mechanical vibrations.


In turn, the generator is uniquely fixed to the body via four ‘spike’ screws that are precisely positioned and torqued for maximum rigidity and performance.


Cartridge mounting is via two machined threaded fixing holes. Also supplied with the cartridge are two Vertere stainless steel thumb screws designed to ensure correct coupling of the cartridge body to the tonearm head-shell.
