Monster Cable Alpha 1 is a great sounding low output moving coil phonograph cartridge. This one is in good used condition. Looks great as you may see in the photos, and comes with original stainless mounting canister and mounting screws. No box or other accessories are included. The stylus appears sharp and shows little wear under magnification, and the cantilever is dead straight. This is a classic moving coil design from Count Hisayoshi Nakatsuka of ADC & ZYX fame.
