BLISS VN35HE SAS Type Stylus for Shure V15 Type III

this SAS needle is obsolete, see new neoSAS stylus here.

Can you guess which one is the new "S.A.S." design?

Introducing... S.A.S. the SUPER Analogue Stylus

...for those who know what music should sound like.

S.A.S  SUPER Analogue Stylus Recapturing the purity of true analog music is at the heart of today's LP resurgence. Taken from the drawing board to reality with the best of today's technologies. We confidently endorse this cut of stylus as the ideal solution for V15 Type III owners. Believe it or not, the manufacture of needles never stopped. There remains one manufacturer that can make a stylus as good as the original Shure without the extra cost of owning an original Shure stylus as if it were a work of art. Now you can restore your V15 Type 3 to "Micro-Ridge" status! (the top of the line cut for the types 3, 4, 5, and 5xMR series) at a reasonable cost.

  1. Compatible with wider and deeper grooves (Micro Groove).
    Carefully chosen natural octahedron single-crystals are used for the diamond tip. Can also be used on records with 30-280 micron grooves opposed to the simple conventional 30-80 micron. (NOT for 78rpm use.)
  2. The secret to accurate regeneration is its thinness and configuration.
    Its main attribute is not only the consistency found in the few microns of width and height, but the unique finishing touches that preserve the high precision. We have realized a curvature with a smaller radius that was impossible with the Micro Ridge Stylus.
  3. Reduce strain and noise caused by needle abrasion.
    Outstanding abrasion resistance that does not taper or thicken. Since the curvature radius does not change, the stylus accurately traces without missing any delicate signals. In particular, the accuracy demanded of the curvature radius in the reproduction of the upper register range of the record's inner circumference, demonstrates its capabilities such as its extensive dynamic noise range.
  4. Polishing technique that significantly reduces damage to the record groove.
    We practice an advanced polishing technique used by well known domestic and international cartridge makers. This will preserve the record groove for longer periods.

S.A.S stylus tip
  1. Natural (not bonded nor man-made) single crystal octahedron diamond tip used for stylus tip.
  2. Boron is used for the cantilever for its large oscillation transmission effect without unwanted harmonics.
  3. Rare Earth Magnets are used for optimal electromagnetic induction.
  4. The One Point System has been adopted in the pursuit of precise technologies that reproduce all micro vibrations from the stylus tip that prevent distortion when properly aligned.
  5. A piano wire (0.06mm thick) braided core is carefully assembled one by one under a microscope to prevent vibration deviation due to slight misalignment.

  6. Always use the S.A.S needle at the recommended tracking force settings (1.25 ±0.25grams). If the stylus pressure is above the recommended range it may ruin or damage the stylus and record and cause poor sound reproduction.
  7. It is important to clean your records and stylus to protect them from abrasion damage caused by dust and debris that have accumulated on records or that have adhered to the stylus tip.
  8. Take precautious not to allow anything to come into contact with the stylus that will cause damage.
  9. To determine when to replace your stylus you should take the various playing conditions into consideration. On average the stylus lasts two or three times longer than the average diamond tip stylus. However, record material quality, tracking force, surface dirt and alignment all play a synergistic role towards stylus longevity.
  10. As with the original Shure's, if you use the brush guard system, this "lifts" the stylus up with about half a gram so you will need to increase your tracking force setting to 1.75 to achieve about 1.25 grams at the tip.

1.25 grams tracking pressure. (1.75 w/brush down on record)
Replaces: SHURE VN35MR
Used In: SHURE V15 type III as an upgrade
Original needle color is usually: BLACK
NOTE: Because this needle is designed for use specifically with SHURE 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 also likely to have been 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 SHURE cartridge type not necessarily the turntable.

The styli for the V15 Type III
The Jico SAS takes the SHURE V15 Type III to the highest level of performance you can get. Detail and top-notch tracking are just a few of it's key strengths. HOWEVER, the design of the SAS is complex and setup is Dead Critical! Also, unless your records are near mint/Perfect condition, you may find the SAS a tad to sensitive to record condition. Records need to be Clean and in great shape!
