Gold Ring

Manufacturer of cartridges for leading turntable brands.

The Story

Goldring started life in Berlin in 1906 when two Czech born brothers, Heinrich and Julius Scharf, began to manufacture parts for the nascent gramophone industry under the name Gebrüder Scharf. At first the Scharf brothers concentrated on gramophone needles, clockwork motors and governor springs but soon branched out into more sophisticated “sound boxes” – which were the all-acoustic ancestors of the modern magnetic pickup.


Goldring is reaching over 100 years of rich heritage and expertise. The Goldring brand has long been synonymous with all that is great about British hi-fi and is a name closely associated with quality, innovation and reliability throughout the long history of the gramophone record. Manufacturer of cartridges for leading turntable brands and designed and handmade in the UK, Goldring is one of the top  technical leaders with unrivalled skill & expertise.
