Headshells and Mounting Hardware

Replacement Phono Headshells and Mounting Hardware

Whether you need to replace a missing headshell or obtain an extra for mounting cartridges aligned for 7 inch records, we have a variety of H-4 replacement headshells for your turntable.  This fitment style is very common on Japanese turntables, and some SME tonearms. The connector shaft has a diameter of 5/16 inches, and four contact pins arranged in a square (not rectangular) configuration.  Similar headshells for Thorens and Acoustic Research look the same but do not fit, or have contact pins in a different configuration.

When hooking up your cartridge to the cartridge wires, you’ll need to know the color codes.

 

  • Red=Right, Signal
  • Green=Right, Ground
  • White=Left, Signal
  • Blue=Left, Ground
