Can you imagine playing your 78s at only 1.5 grams tracking pressure! This needle will allow you to copy your 78s into your computer while playing your modern turntable at 45rpm. Most copy software can then speed up the file to 78rpm digitally once the song is recorded into the computer. This elliptical tip will lift the maximum amount of music out of the old 78 rpm groove! It of course can also be used for regular playback enjoyment as well.
This needle can substitute for any needle and be used in any cartridge listed below.

Elliptical needles have more efficient contact with the surface of the record than a conical tip.
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.
