SHURE VN35E aftermarket copy needle by JICO Japan.
"DE" = .2 X .7 Diamond Elliptical tip needle ←OEM SHURE VN35E (obsolete)
"DE-copy" = .3 X .7 Diamond Elliptical tip needle ← our high quality JICO brand replacement.
"DE-others" = .4 X .7 Diamond Elliptical tip needle← we don't carry the swiss made sub-$20 el cheapo.
While VN35E copies can be found elsewhere for around $15, this is just not a good idea for your Shure V-15 cartridge. Your V-15 is literally thee industry standard and has been for decades. Why would you want to thoroughly retard it's excellent abilities by installing such a low-end solution?
If you are the original purchaser of your V-15, our Jico solution will faithfully restore your Shure V15 type III to the original sound it had when it was equipped with the now obsolete Shure VN35E. If you want the sound you remember, our Jico solution with do it, if you don't mind having much lesser output quality than when new, the $15 cheapie will also fit and make noise but we refuse to carry it here.

NOTE: Because this needle is designed for use specifically with SHURE cartridges, it can be found in numerous brands of turntables. In some cases the cartridges for this needle may be original equipment supplied with a new turntable, but was also likely to have been 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 SHURE cartridge type not necessarily the turntable.
