Vintage Decca London Gold Cartridge New Old Stock

This Vintage Decca London Gold Cartridge is new old stock, and comes with its original red plastic protective cover and outer black box.

Dating to the 1970s, the cartridge is in very good unused condition, with some scuffs/loss of gold coating from contact with the cover. The outer black box is slightly scuffed from years of storage. 

As with all the Decca London series, this cartridge has three connecting pins.

It is marked with:-

  • The Serial Number E7805: The prefix 'E' indicates that the cartridge is a London Gold and
  • Brit Pat 856829/856997 (these are Decca GB patents dating to 1957 and 1958 respectively)

In the 1960s, Decca commenced production of a series of stereo cartridges and heads that could also be used with another manufacturer's pick up arm/tone arm. The series commenced with the Mark IV cartridge, and was followed by the London Blue, with a reduced cartridge mass and spherical stylus, in 1974. Further improvements were made with the introduction of the London Maroon with spherical stylus and the London Gold with an elliptical stylus.
