CONCORDE SCRATCH FOR MAXIMUM SCRATCH PERFORMANCE. OFFERS HIGH OUTPUT, STABILITY AND INCREASED TRACKING.
As implied by the name, the SCRATCH is intended especially for the disciplines of scratch and back-cueing. DJs prefer spherical styli, as they preserve more of the groove over back-cueing and scratching. For DJs that require increased tracking ability, the SCRATCH is up to the task. The Scratch has a supreme ability to trace the grooves of the records and it is tailored specifically for scratch. Due to its very high output 10 mV, it is perfect for scratch of all music with deep bass frequences. With solid bass reproduction and extended highs, the SCRATCH is great for any style, providing energetic sound.
Since the launch of the Concorde, we have constantly been listening to the feedback of our customers to continuously improve our processes and products. Reflecting our extensive experience in industrial design and technological know-how, today, the time has come to present you the new awesome Concorde MkII.
