REPLACEMENT FOR CROSLEY NP-78 NP 78 NP78 NEEDLE STYLUS (78 RPM STYLUS)

The replacement for the Crosley NP-78 NP78 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.

Please note: The NP-78 NP78 needle stylus is not for use with Stack-O-Matic turntables, which require the Crosley NS-1 NS1 needle stylus.

Will Make Swapping Simple

Glad I was able to find a stylus that will simply insert into my existing Shure 97 cartridge. Will make it a simple stylus swap to check out a set of 100 year old 78's inherited from my parents but not yet played.

Finishing Touch to Turntable Refurbish

I finally had time to refurbish my old BIC 960 turntable, one of the few that lets me stack up 5 LPs to play in a row. While looking at various forums how to remove all the dried binding grease on the 960, I found recommendations for LP tunes as source for high quality styli. Once I realized my original Shure stylus had met the reported 1000 hours of life, I made this purchase. Easy to do business. Quality web site. Quick delivery and a sale price to boot.

The best!!!

Had a hard time finding this item, you mailed it to me in 2 days. Thanks a lot.

JICO Replacement for Shure N44G

A great replacement stylus for Shure Cartridge! The JICO stylus runs a little hotter / louder than original, but compared to my current original N44G, similar balance of tones. Purchased two. Thank LP Tunes for distributing to USA & thank the makers JICO in Japan!
