Green 3p (P Mount)


The Green3 uses a three-piece OTL cantilever that has a Grado specific diamond mounted on a brass bushing. Grado’s optimized transmission line (OTL) technology provides an ideal transfer of signal from the surface of the LP to the generator of the system. This technology rejects unwanted resonances and lowers distortion preserving the fundamental and harmonic…


Grado P-mount T4P cartridges are acclaimed worldwide by experts as virtually the finest pickups at their price points. The Grado Prestige series of P-mount T4P phono cartridges are designed for high output and excellent stability under the most demanding conditions. All of the range uses Grado’s patented Optimized Transmission Line (OTL) technology which makes your records sound quieter, improve the height width and depth of the sound stage and offer more detail than previously achievable. Grado’s OTL technology is all about delivering more music, more performance.

The Green3 cartridges are all hand assembled by Grado artisans in Brooklyn, with some builders having over 25 years of experience. With the recent development of the highly received Lineage Series of cartridges, Grado was able to harness trickle down of technology and bring a new technique to the Green3. This updated series of cartridges offers excellent tonal balance, dynamics, and realism, for a most rewarding reproduction of vocals and instruments. Gardo’s coil winding techniques, using ultra high purity copper wire which were honed during the development of the Lineage Series, have let the electrical circuits achieve unison between the four coils in each phono cartridge. This allows for a precise balance betRween channels and accurate stereo imaging.

As in all Grado phono cartridges the Green3 is powered by a twin magnet system that optimizes the balance between stereo channels. All internal magnetic circuit parts are held to extremely high tolerances creating the desired stereo imaging. Grado’s patented Flux-Bridger design allows the Green3 to have one of the lowest effective moving mass generating systems while creating an excellent balance throughout the full frequency range.
