The Spirit of JICO Styli

Posted by LP Tunes on

Have you ever wondered how JICO creates their styli? This video shows you how intricate it is to make each and every stylus. 

Each stylus is handmade. There are different employees to assemble the tip, cantilever, rubber damper, and knob. A lot of styli may have a simple design on the outside, but they have complex internal structures.

Each stylus goes through a complete inspection of all components before it's shipped out. They test each individual stylus to make sure sound signals are faithfully reproduced using an oscilloscope and with their ears.

JICO takes pride in having the skills to produce an exceptional product!

Product is excellent, JP Tunes not so much.

High quality Stylus worth every penny. Not as good as the SAS but very clear all over sound.

Classic music

Ordered a new needle for my turntable which is 40 years old and they match it perfectly sounds great could not be happier thanks so much

LP Tunes Nagaoka MP500 Pre-mount

As posted by a previous reviewer, I found that the headshell is angled a bit uphill, so I had to compensate by raising the tail of my SME tonearm a bit. With just a touch of twist of the cartridge, it lined right up on the protractor and cartridge tracking is excellent. Sonics of the MP-500 thus far are excellent.


I just received the stylus . It is mounted on a 30 cartridge and sounds great. I am just getting back into records after many years of CDs. It's is exactly what I hoped.

Great product great shipping

Stylus was exactly as described and sounds great
