Improved stylus for Sumiko Oyster

Improved stylus for Sumiko Oyster


  • $59.95


The performance of the Oyster cartridge is limited by its conical stylus. With our improved stylus we elevate the cartridge's musical prowess to a new level of musical discernment. Our stylus for the Sumiko Oyster cartridge features a highly polished and precision profiled .0005 x .0007 inch elliptical diamond tip bonded to an aluminum alloy cantilever for highly accurate tracing accuracy, high definition clarity and harmonically rich sound quality.

Certainly an Improvement

I recently purchased a Teac TN 4D direct drive turntable that came with a Sumiko factory-fitted Oyster cartridge, the player is great for the money but the stylus on the cart was lacking. The original Oyster cart put me very much in mind of the budget cartridges that were available in the 70s, with a pleasing sound but lacking spice. I purchased the Oyster upgrade from LP Tunes in an attempt to improve on the sound as I like the Oyster very much but wanted a little more. This cartridge has been very successful, I was able to easily slot it into the original and the overall impression is of more depth, more space, and overall a more engaging and musical presentation. I do not hesitate to recommend this upgrade and may even upgrade again to the next level in the future. If you have an Oyster and you like it then do not hesitate to try this, the results are worth the price. I live in the UK and shipping was fast. Thank you LP. tunes.

BSR QUANTA 400 Turntable Replacement Belt

works, but to ttight and not wide enough. have to change speed from 33.5 to 45 manually

Hi Ronald,
Thank you for reaching out and for that information. We will be contacting you via email to provide further assistance.

Who knew?

I don’t have the technical vocabulary to do this justice but this upgrade is fantastic.
The sound feels “fuller” and crisper and just generally better than the standard supplied stylus.
I can not recommend this more. If you own an LP60, wherever you are in the world, get this upgrade kit. You won’t regret it!
Their service is top quality too!

Hi Edward! Thanks so much for the 5-star review! We did utilize the information contained within the order itself which showed a house number of 104. Looks like a typo was made while ordering, but we are VERY happy the USPS found you. We do hope that you enjoy your product, and if there is anything we can do, please let us know!
