Turntable replacement belts

I ordered some new turntable belts for our record player, super simple to replace and it works perfect once again.

Good service

Unfortunately did not solve the problem, turntable still rpm at 32...

Very satisfied.

I am very satisfied with the stylus I received. I admit I was confused. I was looking for a full cartridge and thought that was what I ordered. Maybe I just didn't read closely enough. I also have not kept track of the cost these items. No worries, the stylus was all I needed.

Good Part!

Working smoothly and fitting instantly...
