Hi guys seems like when it rains it pours lately lol. This morning I was in the process of ripping a record for todays post. I removed my needle from the cartridge like I regularly do to clean it before ripping the record. However this morning when I removed the needle the entire cartridge broke from the head shell (see picture) making it unusable. Now I need to order another cartridge from my dealer. This is gonna set me back about $169.00 plus shipping so I need your help to raise the funds to purchase a new Ortofon OM 30 Cartridge. I am going to use FedEx Overnight shipping which costs a little more but will get me up and running faster. I you would like to help out you can make a donation via Paypal by clicking the donate button below or anywhere on the blog. I will let you know just as soon as I raise the funds and order the cartridge. I appreciate your help so much.
Thank you guys for your generous outpouring of support I appreciate it so very much. I ordered the new cartridge last night and paid for FedEx overnight shipping. The cartridge should arrive today by 3PM my time. Hopefully if all goes well I should be back up and ripping tomorrow (Friday). I am sending you all much love and thanks for supporting Burning The Ground.
Money raised! Cartridge arrived today I appreciate all of you.
