402-M208-165, ICT05RS, Crosley NP6 NP1 type Diamond replacement needle. Currently shipping grey version
NOTE: This version of the needle has a diamond tip, which is 4-7 times longer lasting than a sapphire tip. But the plastic shaft is not quite as able to handle abuse when compared to our 793-D7M needle (see related products below) which has an alloy tube shaft.
NOTE: we only sell diamond tipped 793 type needles. Many places sell sapphire tips that last only 80-100hrs. You can be assured that if their product page does not mention anything about the tip, then it is sapphire. Diamonds average 400-600hrs. The original needle that comes with the player is sapphire as well as original replacements in every case we have seen.

Basically we have observed that 'all' new nostalgic or retro turntables now on the market use this needle. Please note that even though many of them are 3 speed, they only come with a needle for 33/45's (LP) you must use our 793-D3 needle for 78rpm only in order to not damage your 78rpm records with a modern nostalgic turntable.

CHINESE FACTORY DEFECTS ALERT:
nostalgic players shipped from China with a poorly made version of the cartridge for this needle that does not meet industry standards. While it does accept
the originally supplied "402-M208-165" type needle from the same Chinese
factory, it does not accept industry standard "793" series needles that
have been around for decades. This issue is that correctly made 793
needles from us won't click into place well and tend to fall off. When
you get a 793 series needle from us it will conform to industry
standards and NOT fit these poorly designed versions of this cartridge.
In this case the only course of action is to replace the entire
cartridge with our new >>>P-188 cartridge<<< that we have carefully sourced to
meet industry standards and be able to accept 793 type needles for
decades to come.
you have a visual match to the above but seek additional affirmation or
other parts for your model, please view our extensive model number
database **Find My Player** for the most up to date model listing.For
a partial listing of many other record players, that use the
402-M208-165 type needle but are generally not considered "nostalgic",
