STYLUS FOR SHURE M97 SERIES 78 CARTRIDGE

The replacement for the Shure N78S needle stylus is the 78 RPM stylus used with the Shure M97 Series phono 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.

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.

Happy Person

I able very impressed with this product and happy with professional service and speed of service.
Keep up the good work and will highly recommend your company.
Ron from Cincinnati.

The naming is confusing, but it is CFNT4PSE, and it is great.

I was super confused because of the naming; I can’t understand why they would name their styli to a specific cartridge when it is supported by all cartridges in the same family of cartridges. Anyways, great stylus, it was a definite step up from the AT85EP’s ATN85EP stylus.

Outstanding service - great product line

I'm thrilled my Shure V15 Type V cartridge lives on with the JICO neoSAS/S replacement stylus. This cartridge/stylus combo can be astoundingly beautiful or relentlessly truthful...This is the best mix of cartridge and stylus for a low mass tonearm (or as I like to say, a no mass tonearm, like mine) The fit and finish of the stylus is top notch. My old stylus is too worn to compare back to back with the JICO, but I gotta say, it's the best combo for reproducing the human voice regardless of the style of music. It's just natural sounding. If you've got an old Shure V15 kicking around, get yourself the JICO replacement stylus.

Outstanding service from LP Tunes. Ordered the stylus on Friday and the package was delivered on Monday...clear across the country. All Good

A Fine Cartridge for this Price

[playing two of these on Sansui SR636/Vincent PHO8 and Sansui FR5080/Sansui QRX6001 restored]

This seems to be a nicely made cartridge and stylus - and the stylus itself appears to be 'nude' as described and well shaped, under a low power microscope.
I initially set this to the top of the weight range indicated, for about 10 hours of playing, and then down to the recommended 1.3 grms.

At about 30-35 hours, this sounds very nice indeed - for classical records from several decades.
[Other cartridges I own: AT VM750SH, Ortofon Super OM/Shibata, Shure M91ED/Hi-Track and Vivid Line, Ortofon VMS/FineLine, Sansui SV40X/AT Shibata and Vivid Line]
