Simple Skip Solution For Your Portable Turntable

Here’s a quick and simple way to prevent minor skippage on your Numark PT-01 or Vestax Handytrax.

  • Use weighted plate that comes with your turntable cartridge. Mine came from Shure M44-7.
  • Apply double sided sticky tape to weighted plate.
  • Mount plate in the gap between cartridge and top of headshell.

It’s a subtle way of adding some weight to your headshell without using a coin or paperclip.

  1. Thanks Paulscratch!
    another alternative is the technics headshell weight (comes with +4g & +2g). All i did was drill a lil hole thru the plastic. It looks cleaner, imo.
