Cantilever

The cantilever of a record cartridge, like the stylus itself, is an important part of the vibration system and necessary in order to faithfully transmit the vibrations from the record to the needle.

A variety of materials such as aluminum, sapphire, beryllium and boron are used to make cantilevers of different shapes and dimensions. The lighter and stiffer the material, the better and more accurately the cantilever can transmit vibration.

In today’s high-end cartridges, precision is also required for the materials, processing, and assembly of magnetic circuit parts as well as the suspension mechanism connected to the cantilever.
