Phono Cartridge Hardware Screw Set - Brass
Ease of use was our primary focus in creating this kit. Not much thought seems to be put into the hardware included with most phono cartridges. It seems 3 or 4 hands are needed to use the standard hardware included with turntable cartridges. Our brass cartridge hardware kit featuring knurled nuts will provide a secure connection for most any standard mount cartridge to virtually all standard mount headshells. Using non-magnetic brass for your cartridge hardware will ensure it will not interfere with or get pulled into any magnetic components during the installation process, which is especially important when setting up moving coil cartridges as the stylus is often not removable.
Why pay up to $50! (March 2017) elsewhere to get sometimes huge/heavy knurled screws for easy of installation? That may be easy on the fingers but not on music lover's pockets. We had this size knurled nut customized down to the perfect size to fit the cartridge body cutout of virtually any cartridge, even including the tight nut cutout specs of the AT95E.
Assembled with these Features in mind:
- Knurled nuts means just two hands to install your cartridge. Your fingertip, not a wrench is needed to hold or turn the nut.
- Knurled nuts means just two hands to align your cartridge with less frustration.
- Knurled nuts means you can install the nuts above the headshell for potentially faster adjustments. (or a tiny steampunk look)
