Review

The Numark CC-1 Scratch Perverts signature model cartridge is a great choice for a concord scratch cartridge. The low price, and the ability to stick to vinyl like glue is a major attraction! The one piece concord design combined with the stylish lift lever give this cartridge a sleek, clean, modern look.

The cartridge produces a loud, balanced output. I believe that the Numark CC-1 sounds best for hip-hop, the warm mid range and tight bass complement the genre well.

The CC-1 also features a diamond conical stylus. This allows for lower record wear and less required weight. The stylus grips the groove by the wall, instead of the bottom.
