REPLACEMENT FOR PFANSTIEHL 604-D3 604 D3 604D3 NEEDLE STYLUS (78 RPM STYLUS)

The replacement for the Pfanstiehl 604-D3 604D3 needle stylus is used with the Pickering V-15 series cartridges and Pickering P/AT, AT2, NP/AT, P/ATE, NP/ATE, P/AC, NP/AC cartridges. The stylus features a highly polished 3.0 mil 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.

Please note: The V-15 Micro series require the 4527 stylus replacement.

Stylus Replacement

It's a good replacement, no problems. Would have liked the option for a matching stylus guard. Thank you.

Better tracking and improved detail

The stock stylus of the AT60 series has a conical tip, which is fine for the most part and works well within the preset parameters of the tonearm which are not adjustable. Playback is surprisingly good for such a low cost turntable, but the carbon fidelity elliptical stylus is a significant improvement insofar as detail retrieval. Bass response is about the same but the music seems to be more focused. Recommended for the AT60 turntable especially!
