Ortofon Q.Bert

Direct from Ortofon

Co-designed by DJ Q.Bert for scratch and back-cueing. High tracking ability. Ultra high output

Co-developed by one of the most legendary DJs of all time, the Ortofon Q.Bert provides unsurpassed handling, high output voltage, and low wear characteristics that literally put it in a class of its own.

Turntablists and mix DJs alike will appreciate the strong output of this cartridge, coupled with unrivaled tracking ability and sonic characteristics.

The Q.Bert features a more subdued high end, which helps to minimize surface noise from worn vinyl, and an accentuated mid-range to help bring scratching to the front of the sound stage.

The Q-Bert has a supreme ability to trace the grooves of your records and it is tailored specifically for scratch. Due to its enomous output, it is perfect for scratch of all music with deep bass frequences.


The Ortofon Q.Bert is the Qbert signature model. It combines stellar Ortofon sound with Qbert demanded tracking. This is 100% a turntablist scratch cartridge. The needle sticks in the groove through all your craziest moves.

The Ortofon Qbert has a fairly flat response, except for the extended bass response. This is another cartridge that is a great compliment to hip-hop music. Vocals and samples are crystal clear, drum beats and bass notes are pronounced and smooth.

The only downside to the Qbert Signature Scratch Cartridge is the price. These carts are quite expensive, but it pays for the true Ortofon quality. If you want the ultimate scratch cartridge, it would be hard to go wrong with a set of the Ortofon Qberts.
