    i currently use a Shure M44-7 with a Technics 1200 turntable + NAD phono pre.
    during mixing, i find myself dipping the EQ of the vinyl samples at various points between 1 and 5 k. mainly around 3k.

    is there a cartridge more suitable for getting samples to be used in mixes? usually drums (kick/snr/cymbals/toms/etc.)?

    i was told the Shure M35S would be better choice.

    i don't want to spend a ridiculous amount for something "audiophile" that isn't any more practicle for mix samples than what there is for under $100.

    so far I've also been told the Ortofon PRO S is a good choice.

    any other recommendations, preferably in the $50-100 range?

    also, if there is a better forum here, or even a better chat board elsewhere for this type of question, please let me know.

    advance thanks,

    The ortofon would be my choice. However, I also have m44's and find them okay for sampling- however, I try not to do that too much- it's always better to just play it out :)

    i was told today that the Stanton 680EL would be a great choice. mainly because it is eliptical. it can't scratch, but has optimal sound quality.
    any thoughts on this?
