I bought a two-pack of Stanton DJ needles.
If you’re not familiar, these are made for turntablism (scratching). You can break a normal needle if you scratch with it, as well as wrecking your LP. They also sound great! I have only used one needle once or twice, to test that it worked. I was gifted a boutique Shure cartridge, before I could use these cartridges. Having only one deck, I don’t have need for a matched pair.
These would be a great gift for a vinyl rocking loved-one.
