Ortofon Concorde QBert Single Cartridge

Co-developed by one of the most legendary DJs of all time, the Ortofon QBert provides unsurpassed handling, high output voltage, and low wear characteristics that literally put it in a class of its own. Turntablists and mix DJs alike will appreciate the strong output of this cartridge, coupled with unrivaled tracking ability and sonic characteristics. The QBert features a more subdued high end, which helps to minimize surface noise from worn vinyl, and an accentuated mid-range to help bring scratching to the front of the sound stage.

The CC QBert Single includes one cartridge and one pre-installed stylus.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Cart!"
Overall: I've been a turntablist for almost two decades. In that time I've use Shure 44-7's or 44-g's exclusively, as they were always the "Best" for what I used my turntables for. I decided after seeing so many turntablists using "concorde-style" carts that I'd give them a chance. Holy smokes! These dudes not only track really well under the harshest of cuts, they sound amazing! Gone are the days of my laying a nickel on top of the head shell to get a bit more track! While I'll never get rid of my 44 series carts these new Ortofon's have definitely earned their right to be in my needle rotation!
Style of Music: Any and all!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
