Way back at the BPM 2013 show, Reloop announced a joint venture with Ortofon DJ to create vinyl turntable cartridges that would appeal to different DJ's who perform with vinyl. These new Reloop branded Ortofon Concorde Cartridges come in Black (entry-level), Green (digital timecode vinyl), and Blue (all around performers), with two OM headshell-mounted variations also available. These cartridges are now available and Reloop has released three quick videos to show what each one is used for.

These new Reloop branded Ortofon Concorde Cartridges come in Black (entry-level), Green (digital timecode vinyl), and Blue (all around performers), with two OM variations also available to accommodate all users.
