Being totally ignorant I have to ask a dumb question--rather than remove the transformer from the SM57/58, why not just get the SM48 which doesn't have a transformer anyway? Oh, and it cost half as much as the others. Confused




It is not the same cartridge.

Hmm, i wasn't aware of the 48 but it's of interest to me- I have an old (70's or early 80's) sm57 cartridge with no body to put it in.  Maybe I'll get a 48 & one of Oliver's trannys & bring it back to life.

Oliver's 57/58 transformer (also can work on many other dynamics) is really nice.
