Note: Currently shipping the Genuine Pickering DTL-2S (2S-DTL, 2S DTL) which is the stereohedron version as pictured above.
The 609-DEL-tall stock number is a Pickering DTL-2E. The 2E came in two interchangeable body styles which we call 'tall' & 'short'. Pictured above for reference only is a used 2DTL or DTL2 "tall" body version. See 'related products' below for cheaper alternatives. The 1E,2E,3S,4S are all interchangable among the respective cartridges. The difference is in the quality of the cut of the diamond tip. Currently, the DTL-2E short version is once again temorarily available! It comes sealed in a Pickering 'cube' which is marked DTL-2 on the box, but the needle itself is clearly DTL-2E. See 'Related Products' below.Replaces: PICKERING DTL-2EUsed In: TL-2E cartridgeNOTE: 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.PICKERING CARTRIDGES PC-30 PC30 TL-2E TL2E TL-55 TL55 XL-30U XL30U XP-15 XP15PICKERING NEEDLES DTL-2E DTL2E DTL-2S DTL2S 2SDTL 2S DTL 2S-DTL
