The Shure M44-7s are and will always be the industry standard when it comes to hip hop and scratch DJs. With a replacement needle only costing around $25 on average you can't beat it. Although Ortofon has created what I believe is the best needle for Serato SL with the S-120, I believe they are overpriced and not worth the money. 2 M44s vs 2 S-120s will save you over $200 with an identical sound just by going with the M44. If you spin real vinyl then look no where else, this is the needle and cartridge for you. IAMDJDK
amazing tracking ability. Comes with all of the necessary parts to install and then some. (needle nose pliers/tweezers are not included) Other carts are much more expensive, and this more than does the job for me. I am extremely happy with this purchase. definitely recommended. I use this with serato scratch live and the signal is solid and clear.
The Shure M44-7 is the industry standard for scrath needles in much the smae way that Technics 1200 have been the inustry standard for hip hop DJ's(though the Technics place has been eroded to some degree). If you are doing to sample with your record player, I would suggest another needle. Althuogh this needle gives you decent sound, there are needles with better across the board frequency responses. If you are looking for a quality scratch needle, look no furhter.
I've been djing for about 4 years and I have tried a whole lot of products. These are the best needles for the money. Since the cd revelation most dj's are moving away from vinyl. Needles are expensive and these are the best for the money. You never want to buy cheap products and these are the best bang for your buck. Any amature or professional dj will find these to your liking
The Shure M44-7 is a standard for serious DJ's, especially turntablists and for good reason. When I first got them, I popped 'em in my turntables and was instantly hit with a loud punchy sound that none of my prior cartridges had. I've used 4 or 5 different carts, all of which were good quality DJ style, and this knocked them all out. I didn't understand exactly what 'ultrahigh output' would do for me until I tried these; they're just louder, and louder=better. Definitely would rebuy if needed.
