RE: Cartridge, Headshell, Tonearm Match

I agree!

I used a decrease in effective mass of 0.5-grams, but I probably should not have done that. The original headshell weighs 9.9-grams and the Ortofon headshell weighs 0.5-grams less at 9.4-grams. If we keep tonearm effective mass exactly the same at 16-grams while using 9-grams for cartridge mass and 1-gram for mounting hardware, the arm/cartridge resonance frequency will be 8.06-Hz instead of 8.14-Hz.

I think the cartridge should still probably work okay.

Best regards,
