Headshells

technicsheadshellThe typical cartridge headshell is made of aluminum.  You can easily find a universal aluminum replacement for your turntable.  For the discerning audiophile, gold headshells and carbon fiber headshells can be purchased at audiophile prices.  Some folks like to keep specific headshells matched to the speed of the records they play.  It is an excellent idea to keep a reliable headshell on hand to test out new cartridges.  The difference in construction, total mass, or distribution of mass can affect the performance of the stylus.

Most headshells connect to the tonearm via a bayonet mount.  Align the pins with the slots, twist into place, and enjoy your new headshell.
