78 RPM STYLUS FOR CROSLEY CR-249 CR 249 CR249 KEEPSAKE USB TURNTABLE
The Crosley CR-249 CR 249 CR249 Keepsake USB
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.
