78 RPM REPLACEMENT FOR VESTAX VR-1SPP VR1SPP STYLUS
The LP Gear 78 RPM replacement for the Vestax VR-1SPP
VR1SPP stylus features a highly polished 3.0 mil radius
diamond for correctly playing 78's records. The color of
the stylus varies.
To maintain the playback fidelity of your 78 RPM records
you really need to use a stylus designed for 78RPM
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.
