how do you keep your pickups up?
I do use mounting brackets from Audio Technica headshell packaging in DIY wood frames and a converted corkscrew box......
I recently ordered one of these -- $19 and free shipping from Hong Kong:

Well I finally got myself an Audio Technica cartridge. I'd been avoiding them because of their reputation for being "bright" which is generally not the sound I want. But it's hard not to like the VM540ML. That microline stylus just eliminates distortion in difficult passages that even more expensive high-end cartridges like the 2M Bronze and the MP-200 have trouble with.

Just getting started in this world.

The Stanton carts are from my college DJ days in the late 90's, and the latter two carts were from used tables and I just can't seem to throw this kind of stuff away ;)

1. Shure M91ED w/ Jico N91E stylus
2. Shure M44-G
3. Grado Prestige Black 2
4. Sanyo ST-35VD (Audio Technica AT10) with tan Shibata stylus (ATS12S)
5. Stanton Groovemaster II RM
6. Stanton 500AL (NOS - unused)
7. Grado MC+ (1970's tan body stereo cartridge) (dead stylus)
8. Osawa OS-2001 (dead stylus)
