LP GEAR 78 RPM STYLUS FOR CROSLEY CR-42C CR 42C CR42C TURNTABLE
The Crosley CR-42C CR 42C CR42C turntable was fitted with a stylus
which features a 3.0 mil polished diamond for long playing life
and correct tracing of 78 RPM wide grooves. A photo of the stylus
replacement is supplied above. The color of the stylus varies.
Please verify and use this as a guide only since the cartridge
and stylus may have been changed through the years.
To maintain the playback fidelity of your 78 records you really
need to use a stylus designed for 78 RPM records. A very common
misconception is that you can use a LP stylus for playing 78 records.
This is one quick and sure way to damage the 78 record grooves.
Moreover, the LP stylus is much narrower than the 78 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 and inferior reproduction.
Do not order this stylus if it looks different from what you have. It will not fit if the original cartridge is missing or has been changed. Please contact us if you need assistance or prefer a new cartridge. If possible, provide us with the markings on the existing cartridge and stylus (look for the brand and model number). Photos will be helpful.
