    so I've got the basic technique, but found the stylus jumps.
    I think I need an upgrade (later in the year when funds allow) from the Stanton 500II
    does Stanton even exist anymore?

    which are good for all round usage?
    timecodes, scratching using timecodes, and used music vinyl.

    You don't need an upgrade.

    You HAVEN'T got the basic technique.

    You've been cutting for less than a week - there's nothing wrong with your gear, you just need to learn to have a soft touch. The stylus is jumping because you are a beginner. Don't worry. It happened to all of us!!!

    Keep practicing, mate - even basic scratching ain't easy!
