The 609-DE-flat stock number is a Pickering DTL-1E flat version, capable of accepting an optional brush. The 1E came in two interchangeable body styles which we call 'flat' & 'wide'. Pictured above is the 1E 'flat'. The 1E,2E,3S,4S are all interchangable among the respective cartridges. The difference is in the quality of the tip. The 1E 'flat' is currently unavailable, see related products for compatible solutions.Replaces: PICKERING DTL-1Used In: TL-1Equivalent to these other universal replacement #'s: Found in numerous models.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.Wide body version of 609 series needle.
