Will Ortofon’s new MkII series ease the pain of grieving Shure devotees? Mojaxx finds out on this week’s episode of Tips and Tricks.

Resurrect Your Broken Ortofon Concorde Cartridge


Ortofon’s Concorde cartridges are some of the most iconic and enduring products in the DJ world. But like any gear, they can break from time to time. The part that breaks the most is the tonearm lift, the piece of plastic that sticks off from the cartridge body.

On this episode of Tips and Tricks, Mojaxx shares an innovative product by a company called PlayAgain that resurrects a cartridge with a broken arm.
