ℹ Product Information

Robust and powerful sounding MC cartridge

Pro-Ject have extended their Pick it lineup and are happy to announce the Pick it MC3 as part of their complete new MC cartridge range. Pro-Ject's goal was to create cartridges which technically match their tonearms and reach their 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.


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

The 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 Pick it MC3 is made out of aluminium which is anodised 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.

Pro-Ject 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. Pro-Ject recommend one of their "Measure it" tracking force gauge and an "Align it" to properly adjust the cartridge to reach the highest possible performance it is built for.
