Why pay $10 - $12 (as of 2/2017) elsewhere for a bracket that includes no headshell mounting hardware? Then, if you indeed require mounting screws, they ask $10 for a screw kit, setting you back $20! We include the mounting hardware, and have the side screw available as an option so you can choose what you need at a great price.
Most turntables, do not have the ability to adjust the height of the
tonearm at the rear base were the tonearm mounts to the turntable. Lack
of this adjustment may
not allow proper use of this adaptor on some decks. This adaptor plus a P-Mount cartridge installed instead of a standard mount cartridge may
be taller than the turntable expects from a standard mount cartridge. So this may
some cases cause the bottom of your P-Mount cartridge to scrape across
the top of the record while playing. The safest choice is to use
P-Mount cartridges only in turntables designed for P-mount cartridges.
These are usually linear tracking turntables, as well as several Technics turntables have a gimble mount tonearm with a P-Mount socket.
Note: Not compatible with Stanton 680EL, L500AL weighted P-Mount DJ cartridges.
