Rating and Reviews: Ortofon Concorde Pro S

If you need a stylus that can handle the wear and tear of scratching and back-cueing, then you need the professional dependability of the Concorde Pro S.

VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Overall: in the ever so dwindling role of the turntable nowadays...thannnx to the damn "toys" bombarding the dj realm of the turntableists and wax spinners who refuse to die...ortofon has proven over the years to be up there with pretty good cartridges and styli..along with others such as shure and stanton 680 and 500 series...but ortofom in my opinion gives me the greatest tracking stability and hold for especially fast and "violent" back cueing,scratching,mixing,and juggling!..with the concordes i feeel way more comfortable in spinning performance wise and love the bass response of the needles...yhe only thing with the "cartridges"..is sometimes its hard to find "nmatched" pairs sonically...and the contacts in the back are a little short and can provide less than optimal contact witht he tonearm...which at times you have to use pencil eraseed or actually moisten the back ...however styluses are second to none1

SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
Sound: the sound from this needle is the best i've ever used. i've played using many other needles on other people's setups. this is rock solid! 10 years of use and only 1 out of the 3 that i bought need to be replaced. Feature: comes with a case, a brush, and i purchased a set that came with extra tips. Ease of Use: you can see the needle tip for accurate needle drops. Quality: i would NEVER rate any other needle company better than this one! i take good care of my needles, but there has been the occasional accidental drop of the needle onto the side of the platter. THEY STILL WORK after 10 years of use and abuse. Value: only one set of needles bought in 10 years. i don't think anyone could complain about that value and quality of product. Manufacturer Support: no support is ever needed. simple, powerful, does the job without shirking it's duties. The Wow Factor: it's rugged and it works. that makes it awesome in my book Overall: i would never search for another brand of needle.

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.
