Meet the Ortofon 2M Bronze! I bought this new stylus last week and received it over the weekend. My old Ortofon 30 stylus was beginning to wear and after talking to the guys at turntableneedles.com decided that the Ortofon 2M Bronze would be a great replacement. You will be hearing the first rip with it later today.
The 2M Bronze features a nude Fine Line diamond stylus, which is particularly suited for demanding applications. The slim profile of the Fine Line stylus will track even the highest frequency information, making it a must for discerning listeners. Additionally, its larger footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear.
The cartridge body used for the 2M Bronze is manufactured from a newly-developed Lexan DMX Piano Black, a revolutionary material which ensures high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances.
We have optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, and the weight and size to fit the most common turntables on the market today. The 2M Series provides excellent compatibility when used in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.
The 2M Bronze uses a special upgraded engine, featuring split pole pins with a silver plated copper wire.

It was brought to my attention that there was an error in track #3 “You Keep Me Hangin’ On (7″ Edit)”. I have fixed the error and re-uploaded the files. You can download again to get the fixed track.

Hi guys! I hope you all are doing great. Last April we had a very successful fundraiser in which you guys really came through. If you remember I told you that we would be doing a fundraiser about every six months to keep funds in the Burning The Ground account. Well that time has come again and your help is so appreciated. This fundraiser is very important because it’s time to renew site hosting which costs $190.87, this will keep the site online for another two more years.
Our goal is to raise $400.00. This will ensure that I will be able pay site hosting and keep some in the BTG account to go towards maintaining my equipment and buying records that you request,. I do realize that times are tough for many so any amount given is very appreciated. All you have to do to make your donation is click on one of the yellow donate buttons anywhere on the site. I use PayPal. It’s safe, secure, and you don’t need an account.
Thank you so much for your help.

Hi everybody thank you so much for all of your prayers and well wishes they meant so much to me. The surgery went very well the doctor was able to remove all of the cancer from my finger :). I was there about six hours they would cut out some of the cancer look at it under microscope and continue that process until they no long saw any cancer cells. They did have to do a skin graft which they took from my collar bone area which was used to cover the wound. I am taking antibiotics and the finger is in a splint to keep it from moving. I am supposed to take it easy for the next week until I see the doctor again for a follow up. I will keep you informed.
I love you guys thank you.
