Shure V15 Type III - Wonderful Turntable Cartridge

Today I received my "new" Shure V15 Type III cartridge for my Lenco L75 turntable.

After inspecting the stylus (it's hiperelliptical! A perfect diamont shape for great analogue sound) I saw minor traces of wear.
I went for careful cleaning the tip because after a dozen of hours listening it usually gets carbon deposits from the dust in the records' grooves.

And ... miracle! The tip now looks very, very good ... near perfect!

Shure V15 Type III in all it's glory!

If you wonder what should be the next cartridge you have to try on your turntable - go for Shure V15 Type III!
Its fantactic sound deserves every penny.
