    SUMIKO’s many years of experience fine-tuning sound and our continuing desire to reveal the most vibrant and exciting colors of analog led to the development of the Celebration II. With its harmonic richness, pin-drop articulation, and excellent frequency separation, the Celebration II is for music lovers seeking the musical experience of the finest phono cartridges at a more sensible cost.


    Improvements to the original Pearwood Celebration include a brand new handcrafted Pearwood cartridge body, refined long-grain boron cantilever, and most notably a new ultra low-mass Ogura Jewel Co. P9 Stylus (Vital Design). In addition, a new machined-billet Teflon back plate features custom hollow and tapered brass mounting pins for ease of installation. These refinements result in a cartridge that offers more extended high frequencies along with bass extension and an extremely articulate mid-band range. The Pearwood Celebration II embodies all the virtues that over 25 years of experience in designing and distributing the finest in analog products.
