LP GEAR CERAPREME™ 78 STYLUS
The LP GEAR® Cerapreme™ 78 stylus features a precision 3.0 mil highly polished diamond designed specifically for the correct tracing of 78 RPM records. Uplifted by a thin wall aluminum alloy cantilever, the Cerapreme 78 stylus summons the notes from the contour of 78 RPM grooves with exquisite musical expressiveness.
A very common misconception is that you can use a 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.
For the best 33.3/45 RPM stylus refer to the Cerapreme Blue stylus within Related Products.
