Ortofon Concorde Pro S Stylus

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.

DJ's all over the world claim very high demands to their professional equipment, among which the cartridges "plays" their decisive part by realizing the scratching, back-cueing, and live artistic performance, as a big part of the show. Reliability and robustness is vital, when the cartridges night after night will have to withstand these demands in environments with extreme sound pressure and vibration.

Scratching and back-cueing impose heavy mechanical stress on the cantilever and its rubber bearing. Therefore, the Ortofon disco cartridges are equipped with cantilevers made from aluminum tube with increased wall thickness. Special attention has also been paid to the attachment of the bearing and the design of the bearing itself. This means that rough treatment will neither damage the cartridge nor degrade its stability.

Reminder: a replacement stylus is just the needle portion, which is useful only to those already owning the cartridge.

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
