IDEAL needles, cartridges for Reggae

For all of the vinyl spinners, what do you find works best for reggae in terms of producing the ideal frequencies? My technics came with Concorde Pro S, but I am finding the sound too "clinical". Anybody have experience with Stanton or Phillips? I know the needle is just a piece of the puzzle, but certainly there are brands and products that are better suited for our genre of music. Thanks.

I used Ortophon for my first 15 years, but have officially switched to these the last 5, and insist on them when playing 45's on anyone's rig...

For everyday use and low wear on your final I suggest Sure White Lable. For heaven bass you can get the Sure M-447.
Any needle around $100 will be fine. Just don't go cheap.

Sure M447 has the rite amount of weight for 45s IMHO .
