Product Information

Ortofon's latest innovative dj cartridge, designed in conjunction with DJ Q-Bert and Thud Rumble. This cartridge was created for optimal performance across the board and features Ortofon's highest specs for scratching, record wear and output. The design is a combination of two of Ortofon's best cartridges, taking the sound technology from their popular top of the line Nightclub and the performance aspects of the Scratch, while improving on both in certain areas.

To begin with, initial testing shows that the QBert's stick to the groove as well as any other scratch cartidge on the market- no jumping or skipping even under the most trying circumstances. The resulting effects on record wear remain to be seen, but according to Ortofon, these are their best thus far. The output is also notable, coming in at an amazing 11-12mV, which is the highest of any dj cartridge we carry. And of course they maintain the legendary Ortofon sound quality with a wide frequency response and excellent reproduction of bass, mids, and treble. The QBerts are the first cartridge to excel in all these directions at once, bridging the gap between true scratching ability and professional grade sound quality.
