    depends whnat your style of mixing is,ie do you scratch?do lots of rewinds or gota oversized arm that nocks the needle flying lol?if so you may want a heavy robust 1 maybe a scratching 1?shure m447,or if u just mix sound from 1 tune to the next and dont really do anything else then u can choose a normal needle,read the desriptions on the web each needle tells you how its used and wwhat its capabilities are.

    M447s are belter, and compared to some needles are not too expensive...last forever and you could easily remove your tone arm with the stylus and cart on the end, batter a tramp in the early hours gget home and still listen to your favorite Chaz and Dave EP with out any disruptions.
