    Always get the best you can cos it will always benefitTechnics headshells r good but dear,but they will stop vibration thru your mixes.Any vibe will feedback thru the tone arm and straight thru the amp.Take advantage of anything to improve your mixes

    Use a Technics headshell with Ortofon carts and needles. You cant go wrong mate.
