You need to verify the stylus depicted above to your existing stylus. If your existing stylus looks different and does not have a drop-down stylus guard then do not order this.
To maintain the playback fidelity of your 78 record 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, resulting in extraordinarily high-surface noise.
Please note: The stylus above is sometimes mistaken for the Teac STL-153 STL153 stylus but it really is the Teac STL-153B STL153B stylus. For the 78 RPM stylus replacement for the Teac STL-153 STL153 stylus, refer to the Related Products.
