Black needle shown above is the current Ortofon Production for all part numbers listed on this page. You will receive genuine black Ortofon FF/F needle imprinted "F/FF".

for use at 16, 33 or 45 speeds.
NOT for 78 rpm speed.
* 1.5 - 3.0 grams tracking pressure is listed for both the original F15 & F15E series and the new F/FF univerrsal needle.
Elliptical needles have more efficient contact with the surface of the record than a conical tip.
Original needle color was usually: RED
NOTE: Because this needle is designed for use specifically with Ortofon cartridges, it can be found in numerous brands of turntables. In some cases the F15E MarkII,
F15E & F15 MarkII cartridges for this needle may be original equipment supplied with a new turntable, but was more likely selected at time of sale to complete a turntable sold without a cartridge or later as an upgrade to the original cartridge supplied by the turntable manufacturer. This needle should be matched primarily to the cartridge type not necessarily the turntable.
Also replaces RECOTON 402E-916 402E916 & 402S-915 402S915

Rating Ortofon F15E MkII
Stylus arrived ridiculously fast...in 48 hours or so! Works great, it's just what we needed when refurbishing our old turntable. It's great to be able to play records again! Fantastic service, I would highly recommend this website. Thanks guys.
