78 RPM REPLACEMENT FOR MEMOREX 402-M208-165 STYLUS
The LP Gear 78 RPM replacement for the Memorex 402-M208-165
needle stylus features a highly polished 3.0 mil diamond
for playing 78's records. A photo of the replacement stylus
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 record 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.
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.
