The M44G is a versatile performance needle, appropriate for both intensive scratching and mixing.
With a tracking force of 0.75 to 1.50 grams, and a frequency response which is essentially flat from 20 to 20,000 Hz, the M44G produces a vibrant, high-definition sound. With the same unique Shure Type S cantilever as used on the M44-7, the M44G is a highly reliable performer, which is also easy on your vinyl.
Samples of the newly revived M44 series models were used to capture all of the titles contested at the International Turntablist Federation (ITF) World competition held in Amsterdam on November 17, 1998.
