  • Description

    For over twenty five years Sumiko has provided the Celebration Pearwood Signature to music lovers seeking the musical experience of the finest and most expensive phono pickups at a more reasonable cost. New advances in material technology and construction techniques have allowed for a significant improvement in sound quality and have resulted in the creation of this new Mark II version.

    Improvements to the original Pearwood Celebration include a brand new handcrafted Pearwood cartridge body, refined long-grain boron cantilever, and most notably a new ultra low-mass Ogura Jewel Co. P9 Stylus (Vital Design). In addition, a new, machined billet Teflon back plate features custom hollow and tapered brass mounting pins for ease of installation. These refinements result in a cartridge that offers more extended high frequencies along with bass extension and an extremely articulate mid-band range.

    The Pearwood Celebration II embodies all the virtues that over 25 years of experience in designing and distributing the finest in analog products.

    Hand fitted with a silky pear wood body that recalls the glamorous low-output moving coil cartridges of analog's past; Celebration II commemorates Sumiko’s 25 years designing and distributing the finest in phono cartridges. Using a blend of cutting edge materials and the tried and true, Celebration II returns the excitement of analog's glory days. The mechanical foundation for the intricate workings is a unique machined alloy "cradle" into which the entire generating system of the cartridge is fitted, held in place with a single compression screw. Within this structure, the magnet is mounted against a yoke that creates a linear, uniform density magnetic field completely surrounding the coil.

    The sound of the Celebration II is the product not only of Sumiko's many years experience fine tuning fine sound, but their continuing desire to reveal the vibrant and exciting colors of analog.
