    the additional weights are included for turntables that don't have an adjustable counterweight.

    If you use a 1200, throw them away…they're useless.

    As for weight…I think i use 2g…not sure. I was using 1.5 when I had whitelabels. It should say in the manual that came with your carts what the ideal tracking weight is…just use something in that range and if you can't scratch without skipping, get better at it.

    I use about 2.75-3g; I'm pretty sure that's what the manual recommends. Yeah throw out the extra weights, no use for those. And these headshells should be fine if you want to go cheap:

    Ooops, I mean these:

    American DJ Turntable Headshell: Amazon.com: Musical Instruments@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41dnrmBGziL.@@AMEPARAM@@41dnrmBGziL

    But yeah if you're picky about gold plated leads go with the Technics for 3x the price.

    I managed to order a Shure M44-7-H after all, at a cheaper price than the "regular" Shure M44-7 >.<
