    I've been messing around with a Pioneer PC 135 and I got to wondering who made the pioneer cartridges. Were they made in house by pioneer or contracted out to say Nagaoka or Audiotechnica?

    Thanks............

    I never could find out any info on them, the second TT I bought 1978 came with a Pioneer 400 cartridge after comparing it to my Pickering XUV 4500Q I can't tell the difference they both have better detail on the higher frequencies than my Stanton does I still use them all today mainly to record albums to cassette tape I use the Pickering for all my recording and the Pioneer 400 cartridge when just spinning albums
