JICO appoints LP TUNES as exclusive distributor for the Americas

JICO, the world-class manufacturer of high quality stylus replacements, has chosen LP TUNES as the exclusive distributor for the Americas. LP TUNES with its parent Starbrands Networks, LLC have had a long business relationship with JICO. The exclusive distribution agreement was formally signed on October 26, 2017 and is aimed at expanding the availability of JICO styli in the Americas.

JICO, an acronym of Nippon Precision Jewel Industry Co. Ltd., is unique in their vertical integration which enables them to achieve supreme quality. They are able to engineer and manufacture styli from beginning to end including: stylus body molding, cantilever fabrication, diamond tip bonding, suspensions, & coil winding to quality control testing and listening to each stylus. JICO styli have the deserved reputation for peerless production and sound quality. 

JICO brand styli and cartridges will be available in the US, Canada, Mexico and the rest of the Americas. Recently there have been sellers claiming to sell JICO styli. JICO styli are sold only in JICO packaged casing. Beware of fakes, old, and used styli being sold as new JICO styli.

We are currently looking for dealers for Canada and South America. Please contact us at info@lptunes.com if you are interested in becoming a dealer.

Very good 78 RPM stylus

The LP Gear Cerapreme 78 stylus brings the most out of the CEC/Chuo Denshi type ceramic cartridge for 78 RPM reproduction. If you put this stylus into a real Japanese CEC cartridge in a serious turntable, you end up with a very nice 78 reproducer. If you put it in a little Numark PT01, it makes for a very nice portable player for 78s. At its current price, this stylus is hard to beat.

I can't give a review at this time as the needles were purchased as spares and I have not used any, but they look exactly as the original.


Item received in good condition and performing well.
