78 RPM STYLUS FOR JENSEN JTA-498A JTA 498A JTA498A TURNTABLE (2 KNOBS)

The 78 RPM stylus for the Jensen JTA-498A JTA 498A JTA498A turntable 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. A photo of the stylus replacement is supplied above. The color of the stylus varies. Please verify and use this as a guide only since the cartridge and stylus may have been changed through the years.

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.

If the stylus above differs from what you have, then it means you no longer have the fitted cartridge. For us to assist you further, we need the cartridge brand and model number. This info is usually inscribed on the cartridge and stylus.

Good alternative to original

While not an OEM replacement for the original toothed belt it fits fine and does the job. It does cause the adjustment knob to have a bit more resistance to turning but given the fact than an OEM belt isn’t available this issue is insignificant.

Very pleased

This is a perfect fit for my Aiwa old school shelf system. My new record sounds great. I was afraid to play it with the old original stylus so I ordered this one. It came supper fast and I am very pleased with my purchase. I would recommend LP Tunes.
