Precision Machined Sabre Cartridges
Sabre’s body is precision machined from solid Aluminium alloy with its final mass perfectly tuned to the generator for ideal support and control of unwanted mechanical vibrations.
In turn, the generator is uniquely fixed to the body via four ‘spike’ screws that are precisely positioned and torqued for maximum rigidity and performance.
Cartridge mounting is via two machined threaded fixing holes. Also supplied with the cartridge are two Vertere stainless steel thumb screws designed to ensure correct coupling of the cartridge body to the tonearm head-shell.
Sabre cartridge to the tonearm
Three specially designed contact areas machined on top of the cartridge body provide the exact mechanical coupling that is required by the Sabre cartridge to the tonearm.
In addition, there is a ridge machined on the top front of the Sabre to assist with the alignment of the cartridge when mounting onto any Vertere tonearm.
Sabre utilises an Alnico magnet providing long-term stable magnetism and strong magnetic field to size ratio.
Each Sabre‘s cantilever/suspension is individually positioned and aligned at Vertere to ensure maximum musical performance.
The Elliptical diamond stylus tip is rigidly fixed and bonded to an aluminium tube cantilever designed for maximum tracking ability without compromising on high frequency response or low surface noise.
Sabre has an extended response of below 15Hz to over 25kHz which when coupled with its low mass moving magnet and an output of 4.0mV creates a lifelike dynamic range and scale with incredible detail, low frequency ‘punch’, depth and precision.
