        Comments about Audio-Technica AT-HS1 Universal Headshell:

        I have been using one of these for over a year and haven't found anything wrong. It sounds great, is easy to attach a cartridge to and is well built. Importantly, the weight isn't too much (9 grams) so it works well with my turntable and cartridge of choice (the AT150MLx). For a low cost headshell, you really can't beat this one.

            A:

            Thank you for your inquiry. As long as the turntable will accept a universal 1/2 inch head shell it should work. You willed to check with the manufacturer of the turntable to determine if it does.

        • Q:

          Cartridge Mounting Hardware

          Recently purchased a AT-LP1240-USB Turntable. The headshell had been ripped apart by a thief in store. We found a new cartridge but now realize there is no way to secure it to headshell. What hardware do I need to secure the cartridge, and would I be better off buying new headshell? Does new headshell come with screws to secure cartridge?

          • A:

            Is the cartridge a standard half-inch mount type, a universal mount type, or a P-mount type cartridge?
            The turntable requires either a half-inch mount or universal mount type. A universal type is really just a P-mount type with an adapter provided for mounting it to a standard half-inch headshell. If you have a P-mount type, a half-inch adapter can be purchased separately. Regardless of which type you have however, most cartridges include mounting hardware (bolts, washers and nuts).
            If you were to purchase the AT-HS1 Headshell, it does include the lead wires and cartridge mounting hardware however.
