To protect against damage to the cantilever and wear to the stylus tip of the AT-ART1000, we offer our Cartridge Rebuild Programme, a paid service.  This service offers a replacement of the whole motor unit (stylus tip,cantilever, coils and rubber dampers).  You can achieve this by returning your AT-ART1000 back to our factory in Tokyo, Machida.


The cost of this rebuild programme is 1990 EUR inc. VAT (price correct as of 11 October 2018).


If you are interested in sending your cartridge back for this rebuild programme, please contact your local Audio-Technica Distribution Office for further information.


The rebuild programme is not available for other cartridges.  If you have a moving coil cartridge that has a worn stylus, please check our Audio-Technica Trade-in Programme for details.
