(NOTE!!! I’ve opened this post up to non Scratchy 100 members so everyone can see the kind of content that is covered in the members area.)
This post features a video of Short-E showing you how to adjust your tone arm settings for a skip free scratching experience!
In the video I say needles but I really mean tone arm and the settings associated with it to stop your needles skipping. I wil do a video that covers setting up your needles with cartidges too!
Here is the video:
Instructions For setting up Technics 1200 / 1210 using Shure M447 Cartridges
- Set the tone arm height to “3”
- Set the anti-skate to 0
- Balance the weight so that the tonearm floats just above the record
- Hold the weight still and set the black numbers ring to “0”
- Turn the weight so the numbers are set to around 2.5 or 3
Enjoy skip free scratching!
