Aluminum Sony SH-151 "mini" New Old Stock Headshell

June 2020 Update: The BLISS™ version of this shell is in production right here in Corvallis Oregon!  It's all aluminum, just like the original.  It will have some new features such as spring contacts and a higher tier version will have available dual twist-lock pins, and even azimuth control! Plus a secret feature to help control unwanted harmonic feedback!  We are very excited to announce it will be available this year and it will be reasonably priced!  So sign up on the waiting list above and be one of the 1st to bring new life to your old Sony turntable.  Your old Sony will be more valuable once shells are readily available again.

When it rarely arrives here, it is almost always USED. It looks much like a standard headshell but the barrel connection to the tonearm is smaller. Please email us a clear closeup well lit picture of the socket that we can add above to help others confirm that this is the shell they need.

If the "availability:" marker above says "Now in Stock" then yes indeed we do have this headshell, however, these always come in one at a time. If waiting list appears then please use the Waiting List button to be notified when one comes in. You will then have to be the 1st to respond to our email to purchase the product. Check back every month or so if not in stock.

Headshell for PS-LX22
Exactly the right headshell for the PS-LX22. New life for this turntable, sounds so much better with an Ortofon Super OM-20 cartridge. Fast shipping from turntable needles. Recommended!

Sony headshell
Received quickly. Nicely contained in a plastic storage box. Perfect condition as if new. I now have the ability to quickly swap between cartridges based on the type of music I am listening to. Highly recommend turntableneedles for all your turntable needs. Will shop again

Sony Head Shell
I searched the internet and found Turntableneedles.com and found the head shell I needed to replace my old one that had a broken female wire. I placed my order, and after a couple of days, received my head shell. At first inspection, it was identical with my original, then I noticed it had the same broken wife coupling of my old one! Weird...So I called the company, they sent another one with a return envelope, and I sent the defective head shell back.
