DJ Needles & Cartridges
Ortofon have just updated their DJ Needle range with the trimmed-down, but much-improved MKII series.
With the new range, Ortofon have gotten rid of the BIGGEST problem the Concordes had: the finger lifts can now be replaced if you snap them!
The range consists of five items but we stock only three of them. The MIX (entry-level), the SCRATCH (spherical for amazing tracking (and great sound) ) and the CLUB (elliptical with superb definition (and great tracking)). There's a digital one (but we don't care) and there's one up from entry-level that does nothing more but costs more.
MIX: single $140. Pair $265
SCRATCH: single $200. Pair $349
CLUB: single $240. Pair $440
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 (and you will find it less coz some online shops are twats.. Replacement Needles = $65.00 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
