Mid mass tonerms designed for mid compliance cartridges.
Genre of music doesn't matter at all, any good cartridge must reproduce all genres equally, if one cartridge reproduce rock better than jazz this cartridge is BS. If a cartridge can reproduce the most complicated passages ( a lot of instruments at the same time) then it is a very good cartridge.
If fact it shouldn't be an MC, because MM have much better tracking abilities and sounds like a master tape, especially this XSV/4000 or related Stanton cartridges. Victor X1IIe or Sony XL50 are great too... There are many more.
But if you want an MC make sure to check Dynavector KARAT series with diamond cantilever, this is amazing cartridge for mid/light mass tonearms.
