78 RPM REPLACEMENT CROSLEY NP-4 NP 4 NP4 NEEDLE STYLUS

The 78 RPM replacement for the Crosley NP-4 NP4 needle stylus features a 3.0 mil polished diamond designed specifically for the correct tracing of the wide grooves of 78 RPM records. It results in minimal groove wear and accurate rendition of voice and music. The stylus is made in Japan by a world-class manufacturer with a reputation for crafting musically excellent and high-quality replacement styli.

A very common misconception is that you can use an LP stylus for playing 78 RPM records. This is one quick and sure way to damage the 78 RPM record grooves. To maintain the playback fidelity of your 78 record, you really need to use a stylus designed for 78 RPM records, otherwise with just a single playing, you could ruin the fidelity of the record grooves. Moreover, the LP stylus is much narrower than the 78 RPM record groove hence the tip will slide to the bottom of the groove where debris has collected for many decades. This results in extraordinarily high-surface noise.

Stanton 681eee Vivid Line

I have been using this on my Stanton 680 cartridge with great success. Very smooth and articulate. This stylus is much better than the generic .2 x.7 stylus I was using. Alignment was slightly difficult but a small bubble level helped. Why Stanton/Pickering made a cartridge body with thin metal screw mounts is a puzzle. You have to make sure the cartridge is perpendicular to the record surface. Over the years I have seen some cartridges with a tilt between the body and mount. I am sure the LPTunes Shibata stylus for the Stanton 680/681 would sound better, but for my use the Vivid Line stylus is more than adequate
