“Great and Tough” cartridge based on the construction of the well-known Ortofon Series 5000 design.
The vital parts in the GT are based on a very robust and reliable parts used in Scratch. A very high output of 8 mV and improved frequency response that gives higher resolution and sound image.
Tracking ability is decisive for the DJs especially when scratching and back-cuing. In this situation raise of tracking force could be an immediate, but in many cases not very effective solution. The reason is that the anti skating adjustment, if not at a very moderate level, will double the skating effect when back-cuing. So, as a rule, never use more than half of normal anti-skating related to the tracking force.
To make GT even more resistant against violent handling, such as drop or touch of fingers, we have made a rubber suspension of the cantilever even more rigid against axial pull.
