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.

So far so good

This Shure cartridge has a nice sound to it that isn't muffled like the m97xe. It's more animated and open. The bass is clearer. It seems like the older Shure models such as the m93.. So far there is a very slight sibilance that occurs, but I only have gone through a few records so far using a linear tracking Technics set at 1.265. I think this should change after a reasonable amount of time for break-in. I do like this cartridge and I am glad I purchased it.. Bought it with JIco replacement but have not tried it yet. I would purchase from LP Tunes when something else is needed.

Shipped fast and secure

Sounds Great, not an exact fit

I purchased this this stylus to replace the one I had on a Shure M81MC Cartridge on a Sony turntable. It does not fit as tightly as the original but it sounds good the I play the albums. I am so grateful I can finally get a new stylus for my 40 year old turntable as there was a long period no now made them. LP Vinyl is back! Now I can hear beautiful music on all my old LPs that I never wanted to get rid of.

outstanding service, stylus was a little expensive.

Everything I expected

Stylus performed as well as the original and was a direct fit. There was a snafu with my billing address so it was not shipped. When I pointed out that my account was charged, the stylus was shipped, but days late. I still do not know why, because it was my correct billing address. It was a minor problem, so I dinged 1 star for a rating of four
