Shure M44-7 Single Stylus Cartridge Reviews


No turning the tonearm weight around anymore!!

I used to use two Stanton 500 II\'s and I thought they were good. Well when I decided I needed a new pair of cartriges I settled on these. Mainly because i\'m a scratch DJ and heard that these are not only the best but used by DJ Qbert himself. I had heard that these have problems in the Midrange section but let me say thay sound as good as listening to a CD! they have great Bass response so i don\'t need to max out the Low freq on my mixer anymore. And after a few days of scratching or even general use (time for the needles to groove in) they stick to the record like super glue! It takes some time to get them properly configured to your tables as you have to adjust the weight and different angles but a small price for such amazing carts at an amazing price!! :D


The legendary M44-7

These are quite simply the best scratch cartidges I have ever come across (I haven't used every model on the market but I've had a few). The vast majority of serious turntablists I know use these for preference (alongside a Rane TTM56 mixer).

They have a pure history in the scratch DJ game - in fact if I remember rightly you can see them in the close-up of Jam-Master Jay cutting in an old Run DMC video, Walk This Way maybe?

Whatever, they were re-released around the time I got into scratching and they just make for minimum skipping and a much phatter sound. Accept no substitute.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
