REPLACEMENT FOR SHURE N55E-3 NEEDLE STYLUS (78 RPM STYLUS)

The replacement for the Shure N55E-3 needle stylus is used with the Shure M55E series cartridges. The 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.

Stylus

Stylus was exactly what was needed. Really fast delivery. Quality transaction. Would order from again.

Dj Essential

I’ve been looking for a replacement stylus for the M44-7 ever since sure stopped production on the stylus. The JICO stylus is perfect fit. The sound quality and response are on point. I am a heavy scratcher and the stylus kept pace every step of the way and responded great!

Give new life to old records

It's been quite a while since I replaced the stylus on my V15 type III equipped Technics SL-Q2 turntable. In fact, the stylus I was replacing was a Shure VN35HE bought at a Radio Shack many years ago. My ears are getting pretty old, but it's really nice to hear some of my old records sounding like they used to. A huge improvement over the worn out Shure. And I think the $99 price is probably less than the inflation adjusted price I used to pay at Radio Shack. This is a bargain that makes my old records come alive! While CDs are easier, there are memories in those pops and clicks. :-)
