SHURE V15 Type IV Stylus

I ordered the wrong stylus from LPTUNES. It was my fault but LPTUNES sent me RMA to return it. They sent the right one and credited me the difference. I can only say THANK YOU A++++++++ on everything. There are the best company I have seen. A++++++

Replacement needle

The needle for my shure v15 type IV cartridge showed up less than a week after ordering. It was packaged well and was easy to install. I would order again from LP tunes.

Shure V15 Type IV Jico stylus

At first received wrong stylus (for 78 ). When contacted LP tunes they advised me to ship it back and they would reimburse my shipping which they did promptly as well as shipping correct stylus. Im in Canada so it took a little while because everything does these days. Got the the new stylus today and I am very pleased with product and service. Will shop again with LP tunes

Stylus Review

Very pleased with this replacement stylus. It’s great to listen to the old LP collection that hasn’t been played in years. Thanks, LP TUNE’s !!!

Alan Wisthoff (Chicago, US)

I'm very happy with the JICO stylus. It sounds so much better than the original Shure stylus, there's no comparison. As far as LP Tunes, don't expect an answer to any emails you may send them.

Great Memories

I refurbished an old Sony PS-X6 turntable and this stylus was the icing on the cake. My record collection had been in storage for 20+ years and I am enjoying listening once again to some oldies but goodies, in particular a few direct to disc recordings. The combination of an upgraded amp, speakers and now this stylus has produced spectacular sound for all ranges and put me back in the audiophile camp. I will give my I-pod, I-pad, Mac, I-tunes, Spotify etc. a rest for a while.

Problem resolved!

I recently came into possession of a Vintage Magnavox AM/FM radio-8track-turntable stereo console. Everything worked beautifully except the stylus (needle) was missing from the turntable. After much research and frustration in trying to find a replacement, L. P. Tunes popped up on my search viewer, so I contacted them. They responded right away and were able to find a replacement. Their Team Members were so great to work with and my problem was solved! Thank you, L. P. for the help. Kermit Clay
