  • Garrott Brothers K1 Garrott Supertrack 1

    Garrott Brothers business was founded by the Garrott twins. They were two Australian brothers who dedicated their lives to making music better for everyone. Starting off in the hey day of vinyl in the 70s they incorporated some fantastic technical advances into affordable cartridges. Standard cartridges that came on Turntables back then left alot to be desired and the Garrott Brothers business grew very quickly.

    Unfortunately the 1990s saw the demise of vinyl and the rise of the CD. At the same time one of the brothers was diagnosed with congenital heart disease. I won't go into the tradgedy and circumstances of their deaths. If only they had lived long enough though to see the comeback of Vinyl and its popularity blosom again.

    We're lucky that their molds and castings live on and new cartridges can be made so their expertise lives on in this age of vinyl renaissance. 

    The K1 is the conical model of cartridge in their K series. But it's not to be equated with just an old conical cartridge. The K1 is a step up from the average conical cart and this will translate into more detail and musicality in the sound.

  • Garrott Brothers K2 Garrott Supertrack 2

    The Garrott brothers were a pair of Australian twins who saw the inadequacies of cartridges in the 1960s whilst they were living and working overseas. When they came back to Australia they quickly grew a hugely respected company making superior cartridges and retipping existing ones to perform much better.

    The brothers passed away in the nineties at a time when vinyl was out of favour. If only they had lived to see today and the exceptional comeback that vinyl has had.

    The moulds and designs were saved by loyal Garrott brothers employees and hence new units are today still in manufacture.

  • Garrott Brothers K3 Supertrack 3

    The Garrott brothers are an Australian cartridge manufacturer founded in the 70s by the twin brothers Brian and John Garrott. Although the brothers passed away in the '90s right in the middle of what seemed like the end of cartridge and vinyl manufacture, the vinyl industry and Garrott Brothers have been reborn.

    A Melbourne company has taken up making the cartridges from the Garrott's designs and moulds and using the same materials to keep what was a world renowned cartridge manufacturer alive. 

    Garrott Brothers cartridges have managed to outlive their founders and flourish in this, the time of the rebirth of Vinyl. 

    The K3 is equiped with a Shibata Diamond. For the Garrott Brothers the emphasis was always on the quality and precision of the diamond and this is no exception. The Garrott Brothers were able to produce brilliant cartridges by paying attention to the details managing to keep costs down whilst clearly outstripping their competitors.

    The cartridges are still loved and have an incredibly loyal following in HiFi circles.

  • Garrott Brothers P77i Cartridge

    Garrott Brothers cartridges are one of the iconic HiFi brands for audiophiles dating back to the 1970s. They implemented early on some grounding breaking designs on relatively massed produced products.

    And although the founding Garrott brothers John and Brian passed away in the 1990s, their cartridges and designs live on. 

    The Garrott Brothers cartridges emphasise the choosing of the correct, high quality diamonds to get the most extraction from the record. Cheaper diamonds have blemishes and gouges that will degrade the musical quality. Garrott Brothers diamond and the P77i in particular use Gem quality diamonds and orientate them so the grain of the diamond aligns with the groove of the record.

    Also in this model, are built in dampening factors to give a rich musical experience to your listening. As a result of all the above new design features, the Garrott P-77 gives you a beautiful sense of the dynamics of moving coil cartridges, without the typical MC brittle treble and "listening fatique". The P77i proffers the smooth, easy-listening sound for which the best MM cartridges are noted, along with the realistic, clear mid-range for which Decca cartridges are renowned, but without the lack of warmth encountered with that particular design.
