Needle / Stylus - DJ

The stylus, especially with the higher tracking force required in DJ environments, takes the brunt of the physical load as it rides and traverses the record grooves. There is a limit to the usability of a stylus. Our recommendation is to change the stylus every 200-300 playing hours (approximately one month of playing time). A bad stylus delivers poor sound quality and as a pro, nothing less than first class performance is acceptable, everytime.

At LP Gear, we specialize in replacement needles and styli. See our list of supported brands listed in our menu.

Please take this advice seriously. We recommend that you purchase at least two replacement styli, one for immediate use and the other as backup.
