Yea, you would probably only need to replace the stylus.
Problem is, I don't think you're going to have much luck finding one... Those carts aren't sold anywhere anymore, so you might want to look at getting some new carts...

Nah not the headshells, Technics headshell are still sold, but you shouldn't ever need to replace the headshell, Im talking about the carts, Stanton 505 yellows (I think i've got an old pair but they're broke) aren't sold anymore, so I don't think they sell a replacement stylus.

I was gonna buy myself a pair of these, but decided to get Ortofon Concorde Pro S. It all depends on your budget really, I'd say that the diablo's are a good option if your not wanting to spend too much.

I can't say that i've tried scratching with them, but they seem to stay in the groove quite well. Put it this way, they'll hold much better that you're stanton 505's. If you're specifically looking for scratching needles, I know Ortofon do special scratch sets, quite expensive though...
