Take good care of your accessories!
Just like an attentive guitar player would never enter a stage without a tuner or a set of virgin strings, an attentive DJ should always carry a headshell by its side, when he is about putting on some music. Because this porter - it is attached to the tone arm - can either be weight down with 2 or 4 gram pieces, so the pick-up is pressed on to the record. Concerning older records, this construction helps to prevent an uneven run, and concerning scratching it helps to prevent the jumping of the record. The headshell is delivered in silver and black and is indispensable for a successful performance.
