    Hi guys,
    Can anybody identify this cartridge?
    It looks very much like a Lyra but there is no makers name or model number and I can’t find anything similar on the net.
    Any information would be useful, I don’t know if it’s worth having it rebuilt.
    Sorry about the quality of the photos. D7AF9A4C-A1C6-4780-A192-1085DFFEBD02.jpeg 0287011D-3B3E-4D19-909D-2F58158ABDBA.jpeg D7AF9A4C-A1C6-4780-A192-1085DFFEBD02.jpeg 0287011D-3B3E-4D19-909D-2F58158ABDBA.jpeg

    Certainly looks like a Lyra. Neve seen a green bodied Lyra though, just blue (Argo), gold (Delos) and red (Dorian).

    Lyra Lydian Beta from the early 00s. Decent cartridge. Worth contacting Jonathan Carr at Lyra to see what your options are. Long superceded but I have to say I prefer some of the earlier cartridges (Lyra Argo i for example) to some of the current ones.

    Thanks for that, mystery solved I think, although my cartridge seems to differ in some ways from pictures on the internet. Having said that, I think you’re right, maybe an early example or something like that. Thanks again.
