Shure M44-7 cartridge
Engineered for scratch DJ's and turntablists, the Shure M44-7 is designed not to skip under even the most demanding circumstances. Combining Shure's unique wide-diameter Type S cantilever with a tracking force of 1.5 to 3 grams, the Shure M44-7's rugged construction is highly durable, but will not unduly wear your vinyl. With a 9.5mV output, the highest on the market, the Shure M44-7 produces very powerful, resonant sound.
This is the needle of choice for many champion DJ's worldwide, including The Invisibl Skratch Piklz and the X-ecutioners. The two newly revived M44 series models have been tested by many of the top DJ's in the world. Most notably, they were used to capture all of the titles contested at the International Turntablist Federation (ITF) World competition held in Amsterdam on November 17, 1998.
