78 RPM stylus for Gemini CN-1000 CN 1000 CN1000 cartridge
78 RPM stylus for the Gemini CN1000 phono cartridge features a highly polished and precision profiled 3.0 mil diamond designed specifically for the correct tracing of the wide grooves of 78RPM records. It results in minimal groove wear and accurate rendition of voice and music.
A very common misconception is that you can use a 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.
My 78’s sound great with this needle, especially at this price point. Great buy!
