78 RPM REPLACEMENT FOR AUDIO-TECHNICA ATN-3600 ATN3600 NEEDLE STYLUS
The LP Gear 78 RPM replacement for the Audio-Technica ATN-3600
ATN3600 needle stylus can be used in any Audio-Technica
AT3600 series cartridge (AT3600, AT3600L, CN5625AL, and
many other private label 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 one of
the most reputable and highest quality replacement stylus
manufacturers in the world.
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.
