LP Tunes 402-M208-165 NEEDLE STYLUS FOR 78 RPM

The LP Tunes 402-M208-165 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. The stylus is made in Japan by a world-class manufacturer with a reputation for crafting musically excellent and high-quality replacement styli.

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 grooves.

Jico Needle Review

The needles ran smoothly and it is a great product. Whether it would be doing turntablist routines or playing in the club, the needle doesn’t fall short if it’s performance. I would recommend this to anyone that need a replacement stylus.

The best replacements around, they remove the worry of having to deal with stressing over needles so you can focus on DJing!

These are the perfect replacement for the real scratch dj and anyone out there in need of replacing their shure needles for vinyl records mixing and recording and live performances

Very Impressive Replacement

I was skeptical as to why a company would push what seems to be a dying product but after using their replacement ortofon OM stylus I see why. I am a Serato DJ Pro user with two Technic 1200 MK2's and Rane 62 Mixer. This stylus had a diagnostics scope that was nearly a perfect circle. The needle seems strong and reliable. This will be my only future replacement needle from now on.
