Comments about Shure SC35C General Purpose DJ Cartidge:

There is an underground movement among online audiophiles that shows a renewed interest in heavy-tracking DJ cartridges with conical styli. Long at the last of the list of desirable cartridges among audiophiles who can spend ungodly sums on single pieces of equipment in the pursuit of vinyl perfection, a cartridge such as this without anything fancy like dual magnets, exotic brittle cantilevers, complicated diamond profiles or featherweight tracking forces have long been looked over and virtually ignored by all but DJ's.

DJ cartridge this might be, but it was originally developed as a broadcast cartridge long ago from what I understand and its roots clearly show. Expensive cartridges are nice and they do things that this cartridge can't (like empty your wallet). But some of those light tracking cartridges with wimpy narrow aluminum alloy cantilevers just can't deliver the soul that a cartridge like the SC35C can, and it does so in spades.

If you like lifelike attack transients, excellent detail, transparency, warmth, plenty of powerful bass, wide sound stage, 3D imaging, speed, and accuracy all in a cartridge that can take a beating and not leave you without lunch money for a month or more, this is the one to get. If you aren't shy about cranking up the tracking force to 3 or so grams, which won't damage your records, you will like this cartridge. If you want to hear music leap immediately out of the groove from perfect blackness to instant life with dead quiet background and minimal, I mean minimal surface noise from dirt, dust, nicks and scratches, you can't do much better than this cartridge at any price.

This is a truly excellent cartridge that offers upgrade and aftermarket rebodying possibilities that even allow for a wider range of styli. Replacement styli are dirt cheap. The word is out.

If you're worried about high tracking forces, move one up the chain and get the Shure M35-X with a recommended tracking force of 1-3 grams.

Excellent sound

Comments about Shure SC35C General Purpose DJ Cartidge:

I have been using this cartridge for a day now and let me tell you, if you are looking for a clean sound go for this one over shures 25 version, for the frequency responce and low record ware, its the best for any homestereo or Dj system.

The money

Comments about Shure SC35C General Purpose DJ Cartidge:

If you just need a pair of needles to get going this is a good value if you need them to use a lot or they will be handles a lot this is not what you want. The tips or needle itself is made very cheap. It looks like its made out of soldering material. Its so darn soft it bends for any little thing. You definitely have to baby these things. They lasted about two weeks.
