The 78 RPM stylus for the Jensen JTA-498A JTA 498A JTA498A turntable
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.

and use this as a guide only since the cartridge and stylus
may have been changed through the years.
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.
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.
