This Jelco HS-20 is similar to the Nagaoka MG-704. Made of Magnesium, it is about 2 grams beefier and slightly shorter so it should be used with the lightest of cartridges.  Exactly the same as the Sumiko HS12, similar to the Ortofon LH-2000 which weighs in at 12grams.




Made in Japan. Has a chrome plated plug. The total weight as installed including the wireset leads, fingerlift, two screws, two nuts and two washers is 14.5 grams. This unit is equipped with extremely high quality wireleads. Gold connectors throughout.


Generally it will fit any turntable with a 'S' (SME/JEI type)shaped tonearm. It requires an empty socket at the front end of the tonearm.
Your socket must be .300 inches in diameter, have a notch in the top and the bottom! for the headshell alignment pins and have four contact in the socket in a square pattern as well as a rotating locking on the tonearm to hold this headshell in place. Yes! this unit has two stabilizing alignment pins that pull the top and bottom of the plug tight into your tonearm socket as you rotate the locking collar.

If you have a single set screw on the tonearm that holds a headshell in place, then this is not the headshell for you.

On my new Pioneer PLX-1000, it allowed me to accurately set overhang (Baerwald alignment) and set proper azimuth. My Zu Audio DL-103 cartridge sound noticeably better with this headshell versus the stock Pioneer headshell. This is a "must buy" and highly recommended. Turntable Needles also offers lightning fast order fulfillment. They have a customer for life.

This thing is heavy duty. Very well made. Only down side is cartridge mounting screws are steel instead of a non-magnetic material.

Excellent headshell at a fair price. Very adjustable for precise alignment. Matches the Sumiko headshell that I also have.

Recommended by a friend as an upgrade. Using this with a Pioneer PLX-1000 turntable and a Nagaoka MP-200. Fantastic.
