NOTE: This version of the needle has a diamond tip, which is 6-8 times longer lasting than a sapphire tip which is what is factory supplied on almost all players that use this needle. The all plastic shaft design is somewhat weaker than our 793-D7M needle in the related products section below. Same as 793-D7 "for nostalgics" except this one is gray."D7" = DIAMOND 0.7 mil bonded conical tip needle.3 - 5 grams tracking pressure.16 or 33 or 45rpm NOT for 78rpmMODERN/DJ SECTION:• VESTAX HANDY TRAX VR1SS
NOSTALGIC SECTION: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 (see below) for 78rpm only in order to not damage your 78rpm records with a modern nostalgic turntable.
and many many more.
