        Comments about Audio-Technica AT33EV Dual Moving Coil Cartridge:

        This is a wonderful all around cartridge. Works well with all music, I listen to mostly rock, jazz and classical and it excels at all three genres. If care is taken with setup (proper SRA, tracking force and azimuth and importantly geometric alignment) the AT33EV sings. Use with a quality SUT and be rewarded with sweet liquid natural sounds. It has great bass slam and rythmic drive which propels the music along with finesse, a lush mid and delicate highs.. I wonder how this cart would sound with an ML stylus!

        • Q:

          The literature with my AT33EV tells me how to exchange a cartridge with worn stylus for a new cartridge. Unfortunately my cartridge was damaged in a move (bent cantilever) so my stylus didn't have a chance to wear out. Can I take advantage of that same policy, i.e. exchange old for new cartridge for the cost of a stylus replacement?

          I have a Pioneer PL-55X turntable. The last two cartridges were AT's. Of course I don't have boxes indicating the serial numbers, so do you have something compatible for me? Appears to have two mounting screws and four wires which plug into the tone arm. Thanks!

        • Q:

          How many hours can I expect my cartridge to last? I clean the stylus after 5 record plays, use a anti static brush and zero stat gun before each play. Records are always cleaned after purchase. All turntable specs are matched to cartridge.
          After playing hours are met..can I get a re-tip since the stylus can't be changed?
          Thank you!

            500 to 1000 hours.

            We do not re-tip our MC type cartridges. We offer a cartridge exchange program instead. Send in your worn cartridge, and for a modest fee we will replace the entire cartridge with the same (if available) or equivalent model.

            A:

            Thank you for your inquiry. This will not work. This is a half inch mount. You can adapt a P mount cartridge to a half inch, but not the other way around.

        • Q:

          I bought the at33-ev about 5 months ago from zzounds and as i look at it mounted i think the suspension on the cantilever has failed. The cartridge is so close to the record that even with a small warp of the lp the cartridge bottom hits the lp. I have everything set up correctly. The vta, overhang and tracking force are all correct. Can i return this cartridge for another one. Also i maybe have 50 to 60 hours on the cartridge. Thank you brad kessler

          Regarding AT33EV

          I'm looking for AT33PTG/II, but it's not available anymore. Can I use AT33EV instead?
          Asked on 10/5/2012 by Lucy from Fort Worth, TX, USA

          1 answer

          • A:

            You can certainly use the AT33EV instead. Like the AT33PTG/II, it is a moving coil design. Provided your stereo has moving coil cartrdige capabilities, the AT33EV is equally compatible.
