Ortofon Concorde Scratch Cartridge and Stylus

The classic Ortofon Concorde system – now with a scratch version!

Ortofon once revolutionized the DJ market with the design of their Concorde pickup systems. Today, you’ve got a whole range of different pickup types for a variety of different applications.

Most DJs have long had the problem of not being able to properly see where they are placing the needle as they are typically forced to work with headshell systems. Ortofon quickly recognized this problem and developed the Concorde pick up system. A great feature of the Concorde Systems is handling. Positioning the pickup on a certain point on the record is a lot easier than with the OM/Headshell versions thanks to the pickup systems optimal leveling. Another advantage of the Ortofon Concorde is the ability to easily attach the pickup to the tone arm with the SME standard screw connection.

Now, there’s also a scratch version of the classic Ortofon needles. For a long time, there’s been no battle-compatible version of the Concorde system but, as so many favour their design, Ortofon have finally developed the Concorde Scratch. The system features a specially stabilised needle attachment and 7 mV output voltage.

The spherical needle is great for scratching thanks to more stability in the grooves and also helps to protect your records at the same time.
