"Ortofon VNL DJ Cartridge + 3 needles"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
I had to wait for over a month to get this nice set up. Where else can you get a cartilage and 3 needles in 1 and not empty your pockets. This set is a great quality product with everything you need. I can now play around with 3 different needle ranges and see what the difference is. You can go on Youtube if you want to know more.
