LP GEAR 78 RPM STYLUS FOR CROSLEY CR-49TW CR 49TW CR49TW TURNTABLE
The Crosley CR-49TW CR 49TW CR49TW 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.
