 The Ortofon OM Scratch Cartridge was co-designed with top-level scratch DJs, in order to develop a cartridge that could withstand everything a professional DJ could ask of it. The Scratch is intended especially for the disciplines of scratching and back-cueing, the fluorescent neon-pink housing makes this cartridge easily visible under spotlights and luminous in ultraviolet light. Featuring a reinforced rubber suspension, there is no need to worry about compromising sound quality and stylus life when working with higher tracking forces. With solid bass reproduction and extended highs, the Scratch is perfect for any style, providing an energetic and detailed sound.
