Stylus 402-M208-165 78RPM only Version
This is a diamond needle is for 78rpm only.
Upgraded metal cantilever, rather than the plastic one.
We have had this custom ordered with a diamond (400-600hrs) tip to offer a quality alternative to the sapphire (100hrs) tips you will find elsewhere. See 'related products' below for 33/45 rpm needles.
• VESTAX HANDY TRAX VR1SS
Basically we have observed that 'all' new nostalgic or retro turntables now on the market use this needle. Please note that even though many of them are 3 speed, they only come with a needle for 33/45's (LP) you must use this needle, the 793-D3 for 78rpm only in order to not damage your 78rpm records with a modern nostalgic turntable.

CHINESE FACTORY DEFECTS ALERT:Some nostalgic players shipped from China with a poorly made version of the cartridge for this needle that does not meet industry standards. While it does accept the originally supplied "402-M208-165" type needle from the same Chinese factory, it does not accept industry standard "793" series needles that have been around for decades. This issue is that correctly made 793 needles from us won't click into place well and tend to fall off. When you get a 793 series needle from us it will conform to industry standards and NOT fit these poorly designed versions of this cartridge. In this case the only course of action is to replace the entire cartridge with our new >>>P-188 cartridge<<< that we have carefully sourced to meet industry standards and be to able to accept 793 type needles for decades to come.
LEETAC TAP-512 and possibly more.
