78 RPM STYLUS FOR VESTAX HANDY TRAX TURNTABLE

The Vestax Handy Trax turntable was fitted with a 78 RPM stylus. A photo of the stylus replacement is supplied above. The stylus features a 3.0 mil highly polished diamond for long playing life and correct tracing of 78 RPM record grooves. It offers minimal groove wear and accurate rendition of voice and music. 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.

To maintain the playback fidelity of your 78 RPM records you really need to use a stylus designed for 78RPM 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.

Do not order this stylus if it looks different from what you have. It will not fit if the original cartridge is missing or has been changed. Please contact us if you need assistance or prefer a new cartridge. If possible, provide us with the markings on the existing cartridge and stylus (look for the brand and model number). Photos will be helpful.

Terrific customer service

I had terrific customer service, I was trying to switch out a part on a turntable, switching out a DJ straight tonearm for an s-shaped tonearm. Wasn't sure it was going to work they offered to let me send it back if it didn't. It worked great. They returned several phone calls and made every attempt to answer my questions. Thank you!

I also purchased a new cartridge a CF 95 SE and was not sure about the carbon fiber cantilever. They answered all my questions the cartridges is absolutely outstanding I love it!

LP Tunes is definitely recommended. Thank you!

I am becoming an audiophile snob.

After having purchased a Pickering xsv3000 cartridge from The Auction Site, I finally decided to purchase a stylus for it. My musical listening tastes have changed over the years I have now realized. This stylus and cartridge combo presents more of a house party sound ....loud, deep bass, and extreme highs. I now desire a more mellow non fatiguing sound. I want to hear all the details and space and separation on my records. My ears have matured and I want to hear the performance in the sound not just over emphasized bass and treble. I have removed this combo from my turntable. This is not a knock against the stylus more so just an evolution in my expectations of what I expect out of my music presentation.
