REPLACEMENT FOR SHURE N91-3 NEEDLE STYLUS (78 RPM STYLUS)
Excellent made in Japan 3.0 mil LP Gear replacement for the Shure N91-3
needle stylus is used with the Shure M91 series and equivalent
phono cartridges. The stylus features a highly polished 3.0 mil diamond designed specifically
for the correct tracing of the wide grooves of 78 RPM
records, especially used records. It results in minimal groove wear and accurate
rendition of voice and music.
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.
