NOTE: Because this needle is
designed for use specifically with Pickering 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
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.
