Concorde Scratch

Excellent tracking ability
High output
Spherical stylus
The ultimate cartridge for scratch DJs
The most important tool in a scratch DJ's arsenal is the cartridge and stylus. Ortofon knows this and their legacy speaks for itself. Years of research, innovation and rigorous road-testing have resulted in the Concorde MK2 Scratch.

With a massive 10mV output the scratch is excellent at reproducing low-frequency bass-heavy music and high quality. A very slight roll-off at the highest frequencies allow your cuts to be heard clearly without damaging or fatiguing your ears over time.

The rigid, spherical stylus is suited to back-cueing and the new design makes it easier to see the groove with a wider stylus-view cut-out. Tactile feedback when mounting the stylus tip to the body gives an added layer of security.

The new, textured finger grip gives you a wider area to hold on to and is now replaceable, making the new Concorde even tougher in demanding environments.

The ultimate scratch cartridge.
