The MusicMaker will, in its latest guise, stands toe-to-toe with moving coils at anything up to three times its price.' Roy Gregory, Hi-Fi+

" The MusicMaker  is an extremely interesting product; it links the best of both (MM and MC) worlds together; it is clean, accurate and detailed like a good MC while it has the warmth and the "weight" of the best MM's. In the end, the quality/price ratio of this cartridge is simply excellent. Only real Music Lovers apply." Lucio Cadeddu, TNT AUDIO

HIFI Pig Recommended- I like The Cartridge Man Music Maker III a great deal indeed. We’ve had a lot of kit in the house over the last few weeks and this is going to be the hardest to send back. .  The Music Maker III is convenient for many people who don’t have the facilities to accommodate a low output moving coil design as it plugs straight in to the moving magnet input and this will be a good selling point for many.. We’ve played vinyl a good deal more over the last three weeks and this is in no small part due to us enjoying the Music Maker’s character. with extremely high quality sound reproduction. Reviews have been universally excellent, with comments such as "the first thing you notice is the solidity and presence it has compared to almost all MC cartridges.

There's a sense of unstoppable momentum to music" (Roy Gregory, Hi-Fi+) and "the extreme harmonics of the treble were brought out with a crispness that came as a shock next to the harshness of many other cartridges" (Richard White, HiFi World). The MusicMaker cartridge is available in two versions, the MusicMaker MkIII and the MusicMaker Classic, the 'ultimate' version using 99.99% pure silver for the coil windings.

I like The Cartridge Man Music Maker III a great deal indeed. We’ve had a lot of kit in the house over the last few weeks and this is going to be the hardest to send back. Price –wise (£750) it’s a couple of hundred quid more expensive than my Audio Technica but you can hear that extra money and it is to my mind well worth the extra expenditure and I’m sure it will out perform a good number of pricier cartridges.

Len named the cartridge very well indeed – it just seems to make music…it digs deep into the grooves and drags heaps of detail to the table whilst managing to keep its cool and track brilliantly. We’ve played vinyl a good deal more over the last three weeks and this is in no small part due to us enjoying the Music Maker’s character.

It has a sheer listenablity that few competitors combine in the same small body, and that sounds like a bargain at any price."  Richard White, HiFi World, 
 
"The first thing you notice is the solidity and presence it has compared to almost all MC cartridges. There's a sense of unstoppable momentum to music...
 
For anyone using a valve pre-amp like a Conrad-Johnson or early ARC, this cartridge is manna from heaven.
Being used to hearing vastly expensive MCs in a system tailored to their balance, the MusicMaker never left me feeling short-changed. ... never was a product so aptly named; never was an alternative so welcome." Roy Gregory, Hi-Fi+,
