DJ Needles & Cartridges
We rate the Ortofon Halfmount and it fits on a standard "Technics" Headshell and inside the brilliant Shure carrying case.
It's our preferred system by far. It has beautiful refined bass and tracks very well. We recommend you avoid the OM Pro (Silver) and OM Pro (black) not because they are bad, but because for just a little more $ you get a substantial increase in volume from the cartridge. We are fans of the scratch, due to it's sensible decision to ignore frequencies about 15,000 HZ, so that is what we stock.
And that's about it, really.
Shure / HipHop
If you are gonna play with Shure, use the M447.
We don't sell any other models, because they are unnecessary.
This puppy is the Hip Hop / Scratching / Reggae workhorse! Loud, with a boomy bottom end. Not so great for other styles of music.
Cartridge RRP is $150.00 each but we’ll match any price you find in Australia. Replacement Needles = $55.00 each.
We also carry the Shure carrying case: very handy & exceedingly durable.
Oh, and should you be catching a plane, put the carry cord inside and then close to avoid vacuum sealing your needles for ever. $65.00
