Pro-Ject Pick It MC3 Moving Coil Cartridge

Welcome to the Pick it MC world

We have extended our Pro-Ject Pick it lineup and are happy to announce the Pro-Ject Pick It MC3 as part of our complete new MC cartridge range. Our goal was to create cartridges which technically match our tonearms and reach our vision of sound. Each Pick it MC cartridge pursues a different sound character, but all follow the same main goal to preserve a precise and musical reproduction of vinyl records.

The Pick it MC3 is an all-purpose cartridge which delivers powerful and dynamic sound optimised for pop and rock, but also for big orchestral classic.

What you need to know

  • Moving Coil principle
  • Full aluminium body
  • ARMCO pure iron cross coil
  • Cryogenic treated cantilever
  • 1/2 inch mounting standard

Designed & assembled in EU

The Pro-Ject Pick It MC3 uses a Pro-Ject specific „Hyper-Spherical“ stylus to pick up the micro information of your vinyl records. The cantilever is cryogenically treated, which realigns the crystal structure and allows a smoother signal transmission. The cross coil is made of ARMCO pure iron with 6N linear crystal copper winding. It offers an output voltage of 0,4 mV and works best with a tracking force of 2 grams/mN.

Unique design
The body of the Pro-Ject Pick It MC3 is made out of aluminium which is anodized in a beautiful steel blue finish which ensures a superior built quality and rigidity. The 1/2 inch mounting standard allows easy top-mounting with the threaded mounting holes. The included transparent stylus protector is easily slid onto the cartridge from the bottom to protect the needle when needed.
We were able to source high quality Japanese parts to design this outstanding cartridge. The assembly and quality control is done in Europe to ensure the highest possible sound quality.
You find all needed tools like screws and hex key in the box to mount the MC3. We recommend one of our „Measure it“ tracking force gauge and an „Align it“ to properly adjust the cartridge to reach the highest possible performance it is built for.
