Lack of vinyl bass and midrange

I have a SOTA Star Saphire turntable with ET-2 arm and Monster Alpha Genesis 1000 cartridge that I have reinserted into my system after years of disuse. Problem is the sound is anemic with lack of bass and midrange compared to CD. I have a McCormick Micro phono stage with 100 ohm load. When I last had this turntable in my system it sounded great. Any ideas as to the source of this problem would be greatly appreciated.
It's probably the load. Try a higher value at the phono input.
Another, (unlikely) cultprit is the phono gain. Not enough. But I expect you've already checked that out.
I also wonder about the suspension of the Monster cartridge after all these years. That would probably be my first guess at what your problem is.

Check VTA.
I second Ozzy62. Cartridges will dry out. I'll bet that even a $40 ortofon will sound amazingly better. Your table should be able to "sing" compared to most cd's.
Ditto the suspension. You could try dribbling a drop of Stylast in the inner workings of the cartridge to loosen the suspension, it's worked for me before with no problems. Or try a drop of other rubber revitalizer which others have used successfully. This is if the cartridge is toast and destined for the rubbish heap anyway, if you want to keep it in the long haul then safest would be to send the cartridge somewhere for rebuilding.
Thanks for the responses. I'll try the Stylast. Where would I get it rebuilt?
I think the Stylast will work, dribble only a very small drop into the inner workings, let it sit for a few minutes, then re-mount it and let it play a few records. Both Van den hul and Benz offer rebuilding services, as does Len the Cartridge Man (of Music Maker fame), I believe Benz is the most reasonably priced of these. Lowest price of all with good reports is Expert Stylus Co. in England, but apparently hard to reach, check out Vinyl Engine for info on all of the above.
1...Verify that pickup wiring is not out of phase between channels.
2...Compare left and right channels (using a mono LP if you have one). If they are the same suspect the pickup. If one channel is bad the RIAA equalization in the preamp might be the problem. (Unlikely that the two circuits could fail the same way). Beg, borrow or steal a different preamp to try out.
3...Play your LP on someone elses system so you know how itsn bass and midrange should sound. Maybe you are just hearing a LP/CD difference.
With a great rig like yours, I think you really owe it to yourself to buy a modern cartridge. Without naming specific models, I'd recommend:

van den Hul

and if you can get the Monster rebuilt for two to three hundred dollars, great! Keep it as a spare. The Stylast solution is a little like using Armorall on old plastic, i.e. you cannot re-polymerize old dried-out rubber/plastic products. You can only temporarily "knit up" the unravelling molecular chains, but they will never give you the original performance, and will come undone again in relatively short time.
I've found that you CAN bring some carts back from the dead. Had some Sonus stylus assemblies in a junk drawer for at least 25 years and tried them on a Sonus body I found on bay. Dead like mackeral. Figured I had nothing to lose by slathering some "Re-Grip," usually used on the rubber parts of a reel-to-reel deck, on the rubber suspensions of the styli. After playing half a dozen LPs, the Sonus really started to sing. Now it has pride-of-place on my Lenco/SME IIIs setup. Good luck, Dave
Ditto Dave's experience: I treated my Kiseki Blue to soem Stylast some 4 years ago when it had the same problem (had been tucked away for a few years) and it's still going strong! The flip side is: Van den Hul anyway refuses to work on cartridges that have been so treated, so if you are thinking of sending it in for a rebuild you might be better off sending it right away before treatment. Again if it is destined for the trash bin anyway then there's nothing to lose.
