This is a shibata needle which is the best cut available for Digitrac cartridges.
Digitrac needles are long since obsolete but this modern BLISS brand stylus designed for use with the entire Digitrac line provides restoration to your Digitrac cartridge as a shibata tipped upgrade to the NE needle. You can use it to turn any Digitrac cartridge listed below into a high end shibata solution sure to be well respected by audiophiles of any level. Even thought the bonded shibata cut tip is not nude like the NE was, it would still be considered a solid upgrade to the NE stylus as the shibata cut was invented specifically to extract the maximum amount of musical information from your grooves.
