Logging Phono Cartridge Hours

I'm going to go really low tech here. I have a number of turntables set up I use regularly, with some tables having more than one cartridge (e.g, replaceable headshells or armwands). I have a simple hand-held tally counter labelled with the name of the cartridge that sits near the table the cartridge is used on. When I play an LP side I click the tally counter for the cartridge that played it. You can get a 6 pack of tally counters on Amazon for less than $15.

I’m doing the same thing. I also use one for each CD I play, and one for each time I wet clean my stylus.
