    Excellent for scratch and mix

    Comments about Shure M44-7H Scratch Cartridge with Headshell:

    I've been a Ortofon fan for years, used a pair of DJS concorde editions with no skips or tracking problems. After a long break from dj'ing I brought out my turntables and my old Ortofons just didn't sound that great any more. Everyone said the M44-7 where great so I tried them out. I honestly didn't like headshell carts after a bad experience with old Stanton 680EL's but for the price gave it a chance. Honestly, I can say these are really nice sounding needles. Lots of good lows but not so much they muddy up the mix. Also the track well but require less weight then my old Ortofons. I track at 3 grams, 2 tonearm height and 0 skate with no skips. Also note, that these will move allot when scratching, it's normal and everyone I talked to has the same experience.

    Best battle cartridge

    Comments about Shure M44-7H Scratch Cartridge with Headshell:

    This is the absolute best cartridge made for scratch or battle DJ's. I have OM pros, & even the pink/red concorde S but none stick to the record like this cartridge. Turn cartridge at an angle on the headshell (if you have 1200 style S arm) - You'll know you have it correct when the wobble is totally gone! They work better if you don't push the end weight all the way to the front. I did some extreme testing bewteen top cartridges for scratching, and one other was close, but this outperformed them all in the end.

    When setup correctly this cart performs superbly and sticks to your records like glue. Excellent sound and low wear on your vinyl, especially under heavy scratching.
