The cartridge has 22 hours total time on it . It was bought new from,and mounted by Mike Burns/Wolfsong Audio. New price is $5K and has a wait time. I am asking $3K. This was hand made by Peter and is not even broke in yet. I am living in DC area but lived for years in Norcross Ga. I can send many local audio references if needed.
