Overview

The Ortofon Scratch was designed together with DJ's for scratch and back cueing. The rubber suspension is especially developed for scratch and back cueing. This turntable cartridge uses a spherical diamond and achieves a high output (7.0 mV).

Several Ortofon technologies make it possible to realize high sound quality and low record wear at the high tracking forces that are necessary in disco environments. DJ's all over the world claim very high demands to their DJ professional equipment, among which the cartridges plays their decisive part by realizing that scratching, back-cueing, and live artistic performance are a big part of the show. Reliability and robustness is vital, when these replacement 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 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 Ortofon cartridge nor degrade its stability.

For easier cueing, the nose of all the Ortofon cartridges have an extra large cutout which makes the stylus freely visible from above, and further, the tip of the cantilever is fluorescent.

High Performance

By Sir Elegance

from Santa Cruz

These needles are flawless. They do not skip even under extreme conditions. I have used these at the club many times. Even in competition they have never let me down. I highly recommend the Orton Scratch Needle for any dj who requires high performance from their needles.
