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.

Excellent All-Round

A great company to deal with. Very prompt with communication, and an excellent product that is not easy to find!

Well made high quality stylus.

Stylus packaging is attractive, sturdy and functional and included a detailed spec/instruction sheet.

The stylus fit the cartridge perfectly and displayed excellent craftsmanship.

Little or no break in time was required and sounded excellent right out of the box. It’s response sounds accurate and flat with strong natural lows and crisp non-sibilant highs. Detail and separation is excellent. It tracks well at recommended force of 1.25 grams.

I am very pleased with this stylus and recommended it for V15 Type IV MR users.

Great stylus

This is just what you need to get a new life out of a Shure V15, highly recommended!

Ummm, It's a belt

It goes from here to there and back again.

Stylus for DAK GLI PRO BD1600 turntable

I was very pleased with the quick response to my order. It came by US Mail and got here in about 3 or 4 days from the order submission. I did not request a rush since I wasn't in that big a hurry to listen to my old albums, but now I can when I want to. The part fit perfectly and works well.
