GRADO 78E STYLUS (78 RPM STYLUS)

Ships to US only

The Grado 78E needle stylus 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 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.

It took over 24 day to get the correct stylus but we are happy with the correct stylus.

Great sound

Trebles, bass, mids all excellent. Had a hard time setting it up because the tracking angle needed to be just about spot on for excellent reproduction. Once that was figured out, voila!

Outstanding replacement stylus. I've had the Shure V15xMR cartridge for years. Have tried other cartridges but always returned the Shure back in to my system.
