    Default Best Needle/Cartridge for a DVS set up?

    I have always used Shure M44-7s. I am a turntablist but I am still relatively new to Serato and my DVS set up (Pioneer DJM-T1, 2 1200 MKIIs, SL1 box, several different midi devices). I have been slow to convert from vinyl, what can I say, I am a creature of habit. My question is what are the best needles for scratching on a DVS set up? If you have the time, ideally I would like to know the best needles/cartridges starting on a low budget to the best money can buy. Thanks for the advice!

    No need to change from the M44-7ís, mate. I used Stanton 505ís for years and years with DVS until I came up on some M44-7ís at a price I couldnít pass up - and, honestly - I donít prefer one over the other.

    Stick w/M44-7ís. What else would a turntablist use?
