What Cartridge Manufacturers Will Retip Their Moving Coil Cartridges For A Fee?

What cartridge manufacturers will retip their moving coil cartridges for a fee?

I have a $3k Sumiko cartridge....Sumiko offers me $900 credit for my old cartridge towards the purchase of a new $3k Sumiko cartridge.

Next time I buy a new cartridge, I'd like to buy one from a manufacturer that will retip it for a fee.  Do any manufacturers of moving coil cartridges do retipping?


Dear @mitch4t  : VdH do it but with out question the best way to do it for your Celebration is the one posted  @dhcod

Lyra rebuild Etna and Altas cartridges. Dynavector rebuild the XV-1s and XV-1t cartridges. They go back to Japan. It's more than a retip. You get all new internals, including dampers/suspension. Only the body and magnets are reused. For both brands the cartridges down the product line are exchanges.

I prefer the offer of a fresh recently inspected new cartridge for a discounted price.

Audio Technica: I sent my AT33PTGII in to see if it's stylus was worn as I expected.

Yes, it is worn, we have a program to sell you a new cartridge for $_____

Half the price when purchased a few years prior.

Yes please!

Everything new, including fresh suspension which is often forgotten, recent inspection for output specs and truly straight/aligned cantilever/stylus tip.

Ortofon rebuilds, at least the higher end models. Only the body is reused, I believe, and the cartridge gets a new serial number. My A90 has been done thrice.

I have two Lyra Atlas Lambda (SL + Mono) and a DV XV-1s. I am happy for them to get a rebuild. I don't see a need to get a whole new cartridge out of it. A rebuild the way Lyra and DV do it is pretty much the same thing anyway. It costs an arm and leg either way. 😉
