Gemologist quality loupe by Belomo with all metal housing and triplet glass optics for a bright, clear and close-up view of critical stylus parts especially diamond tip, cantilever tube and bushing. The Belomo loupe features an aplanatic and achromatic triple lens system (corrected for linear and color distortion). 10X and 21mm focal width for ease of use. This superlative quality loupe is made in Belarus by BELOMO, the acronym for Belarus Optiko Mechanichesckoye Obyedinenie (Belarus Optical & Mechanical Association). A joint venture with optics maker Zeiss was begun in 1995. The firm produces lenses and optical elements for microscopes and other optical equipment with ISO 9001 certification. The Belomo loupe is considered by some as one of the finest loupes available—comparable in quality and performance to such exalted names as Bausch & Lomb, Zeiss, Nikon, Kaya and Schneider.

How to use the Stylus Inspector Loupe
A loupe is designed to be used in a well-lighted location. Bring the Stylus Inspector Loupe up to your eye as close as is comfortable against your eyelashes (or near your eyegalsses) but without touching your eye. Be sure to keep both eyes open. It is natural to want to close the other eye but eventually it leads to eye strain more quickly than keeping both eyes open. Keep the gem loupe stationary. Bring the stylus in to the loupe to focus.

Slowly move the stylus back and forth until it comes into focus and maximum clarity. Because the loupe has very strong magnification, the focal range or aperture is very narrow. Slightly move the stone back and forth and turn it around to get different areas of the stylus into focus for examination.

Note: 10X is the standard for diamond and gemstone grading. We do not recommend higher than 10X magnification. It is difficult to focus. More importantly, it would require the user to bring the stylus very close to the lens and this could lead the end-user to accidentally hit and bend the cantilever.

Turntable brought back to life

Glad that I found LP tunes while searching for a replacement belt for my 1983 Technics turntable, which had been in storage in a hot attic over 10 years, the belt was an exact fit, Enjoying my vinyl again!
Ill be searching LP tunes to replace my stylus soon and keep the current one as a back-up

Excellent stylus for KLH Model 20

The sound and fidelity are excellent. A big improvement over old used styli like those you might find on eBay, or incompatible versions you might find cheap on Amazon. Stick with this one.

Replacement for Pickering DLE stylus

Quick Service

First time ordering (Pickering DLE Stylus) and happy with service.


I have a vintage, Realistic turntable that I lost the stylus. I looked a lot of places online, but there were just so many styles and variations. I was concerned I wouldn’t find the right one for my vintage turntable. I contacted LP tunes. I provided them the cartridge model # and they recommend a stylus. The stylus purchased arrived with fast delivery, the price was comparable to most others, and when it arrived and slid right into the cartridge and played my vinyl I could not have been more happy. I thank LP tunes for being prompt, having great communication and helping me out with my order. I will definitely order again.

Audio-Technica replacement ATN-70 stylus

Sounds great!

I'm a pretty new record collector. To get started, I purchased a vintage Sony PS-LX2 at the thrift store and replaced it's original stylus with this. Then I set the counterweight, the tracking force and made sure the cartridge was aligned - low and behold - great sounding Music!
