Highly recommend all of Mr. Ledermann's presentations on You Tube.

Sorry, he makes anyone I ever encountered on boards sound like pikers.

Indeed.

It would be nice if someone in Canada put out their shingle for this kind of work. I've held off on having a couple of worthy candidates rebuilt because I'm wary of cross-border paper work. With my filing system I'm bound to screw things up.

I have a microscope, how shaky is your hand? :lol:

But with you on wishing work such as what Soundsmith provides was available in the Great White North

No comment on his postings, but SoundSmith makes great aftermarket replacement stylii: a 40 year old Grace F9 MM with SoundSmith Ruby stylus positively embarrassed my $3K Benz Micro MC. . .

Soundsmith did a great job on my lyra kloes doing cantilever and stylus replacement. They will only return ship through usps back to Canada. They told me they knew about ups excessive brokerage fees.

Soundsmith said to write on the box item sent for repair in USA and returned back to Canada. It went perfect. The cartridge was damaged by a dealer after he set up the cartridge. With that experience, I learned how to do it myself.

Is there any other than Soundsmith? Guess buy back program from manufacture is only other solid option.

This would be in response to Soundsmith....I have a very viable alternate! I just sent two Clearaudio cartridges to Germany! One Sigma Gold and a MM Maestro very reasonable rebuild and re-tip. Took aprox. 5 months but well worth the wait! FJS Tonabnehmer Service GmbH&Co.KG info@ tonabnehmerservice.de. They have a number of options for re-tips and cantilevers. Both of these re-builds perform better than the original cartridges I purchased! The clarity and detail is amazing!!!

$ 700.00 Canadian for an Aluminum Cantilever and Shibata Diamond for the Maestro and Shibata Diamond for the Sigma cantilever was good! The costs will vary according to the service you would like... Just go to the website for details... Franz-Josef Schulte has been rebuilding for the past 30 plus years!
