Theres not much you can say…
There’s not much you can say about a headshell. It is what it is. (Don’t you hate that saying!) The OEM AT-HS1 headshell was received sooner than expected via UPS/USPS, in fact sooner than the turntable. It was packaged well and even the cardboard box that contained the headshell had no dents or damage. All included accessories, ie: mounting screws were included as they should be. The ATLP120 turntable I purchased from Amazon comes with a mediocre AT cartridge that requires a tracking weight of 3 to 5 grams, I’m told, and this replacement shell will allow me to mount a quality cartridge for my use and save the other for playing some older records for my Grand kids.
