LP GEAR iSMG9 STYLUS FOR 78 RPM
The LP Gear iSMG9 stylus for 78 RPM 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.
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.
