78 RPM replacement for Lasonic 402-M208-165 402M208165 stylus
The 78 RPM replacement for the Lasonic 402-M208-165 402M208165 needle stylus features a 3.0 mil diamond for correctly playing 78 RPM records.
To maintain the playback fidelity of your 78 records you really need to use a stylus designed for 78 RPM records. A very common misconception is that you can use a LP stylus for playing 78 records. This is one quick and sure way to damage the 78 record grooves. Moreover, the LP stylus is much narrower than the 78 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.
