No, you should not need to install extra weights. Adjust the tomearm counterweight (on the back of the tonearm).
Install new cartridge.
Set tracking force dial to zero.
Adjust counter weight so tonearm floats vertically. This is the balance point.
Dial in tracking force, 1 to 3 grams.
If you cannot achieve balance point then you may have to add weight between the cartridge and the cartridge mount

Looking at both the turntable and the "Shure" Premier cartridge it looks like they both have the screw type of fixing that fits to the underside of the Headshell. So I would say yes. But have a look at both of them on the internet before you buy.
PS you have to add "Shure" or "record cartridge" when searching for Premier cartridges otherwise it comes up with printer cartridges.

My technic sl 1200 is distorting. It is not the stylus or cartridge as i have swapped them and it still distorts. Any ideas?


Could be a couple of things. Could be the alignment, weighting, tracking or all of those causing this. It could be the gain structure on your mixer is not set and is too high. Maybe that the output of the cartridge is to high for standard mm inputs

Distorted sound on Technics SL-1200/1210


You could be getting acoustic feedback from the speakers to the TT's. Lower the volume or somehow isolate them from room sounds and vibrations.

Is a Vestax VR-3S cartridge compatible with a Technics 1200 turntable?


HI!
I understand the Vestax VR-3S cartridge is moving magnet (magnetic). Provided it is wired correctly there should be no problems. Any magnetic cartridge will be compatible.
CHEERS :-)

Had to replace stylus on SL-B2. Arm was "skating" across disc but seem to have that fixed. Sound definitely not correct. What can I adjust?


Hi sounds like the cartridge or stylus are not seated correctly or at correct angle (cartridge).
Also weight/balance and anti skate need adjustment. Try getting the manual and using that to set it up correctly - no easy task though as lotsa info there.... :) Manual for 1200 MK3 will do as well. Hope that helps

What cartridge do I buy for this turntable


You should get a headshell first of all. Into the headshell you install the cartridge. I would get a Technics headshell just because it is of the same brand, and I use a SHURE M35X cartridge which is mean for dance or electro music. The headshell is your option but the cartridge should be matched up to what type of music you will be playing. Good Luck
