        Comments about Audio-Technica AT-HS1 Universal Turntable Headshell:

        I purchased two of these head shells to make it easy to swap out different cartridges (One for 45's and 33's; the other for 78's). While it was not fast and easy with my big fingers to carefully screw in the cartridges to the head shells and connect the rear wire leads, I eventually succeeded and the product works flawlessly.

        Comments about Audio-Technica AT-HS1 Universal Turntable Headshell:

        I purchased this to set up an extra cartridge for a vintage turntable I recently purchased. I may go many years and never need this, but believe a back-up is always a good idea. This hardshell was easy to install and after doing so have some comfort knowing I have an excellent spare in case my primary cartridge is broken so the records can still spin with little interruption!

            Since I use multiple cartridges, depending on the age and type of LP (mono, stereo, quad, etc.)it's necessary for me to have extra headshells when I set up a new turntable. These two were put to use immediately!

                I bought this as a second headshell for a Shure M78S cartridge to play my old shellac records on an Audio Technica 120 LP turntable. It is identical to the headshell that came with the turntable. Screws are included and installation was straightforward. Works as expected and makes switching between regular records and 78s very easy. I just need to switch the headshell and adjust the tracking force.

                    I don't think you wil lneed a more expensive headshell than this, it does the job!

                    If you are mounting a cartridge on this, be patient, and watch videos on how to do it before you venture yourself

                      This is the stock headshell as found on the Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable, which I recently purchased. Since I had a few other cartridges with good styli I wanted to try for comparison, this purchase fit the bill. I can now switch out the current cartridge without having to labor with mounting; sort of a "plug-and-play" proposition. Works perfect, and a good price to boot.
