The J44D DJ SD is the ideal cartridge for DJs looking to replace their venerable Shure M44G with a premium cartridge offering similar performance. Supplied with a JICO N44G DJ SD stylus based on a synthetic diamond and an S-type cantilever for excellent tracking, this cartridge is the perfect way to recapture the sound and feel of the legendary Shure M44G and N44G cartridges and diamonds, at a very affordable price.

High-quality synthetic diamond.
The SD range, which stands for Synthetic Diamonds, uses synthetic diamonds instead of natural diamonds. Artificially created, these synthetic diamonds share the same optical and physical properties as a natural diamond, while offering very consistent performance at a controlled cost. Thanks to a diamond tip with an adjusted diameter and a new cantilever damping system, synthetic diamonds are able to offer a pleasant and precise sound, more defined than a bonded natural diamond, while maintaining a lifespan in excess of 200 hours.
