Hi folks

I have pair of 1210s & I'd like to try changing cartridges from the existing Ortophon Nightclub S.

I have an Ortophon 2M Black that I'd like to try but clearly I'd need a headshell.

Anyone done this before?  Where should I look for one?

Thanks in advance.

Since the original Technics part has now reached a prohibitive price, a good alternative I have found is this:


or


No need to overspend on a shell, and this one is the closest in size, style and weight to an original Technics.

I use one on my 2M, with great results.

You will also need a Technics 52mm gauge for setting up the cartridge, if you don't already have it:

You will need the rear of the arm screw-in counterweights to get it to balance out.
Not simple enough for Google-Bot to understand...
