VN35E Type BLISS™ Stylus for Shure V15 type III



Japan Made | USA Stock


While VN35E copies can be found elsewhere for around $15, this is just not a good idea for your Shure V-15 cartridge. Your V-15 is literally thee industry standard and has been for decades. Why would you want to thoroughly retard it's Excellent abilities by installing such a low-end solution?

If you are the original purchaser of your V-15, our BLISS Needles solution from Japan will faithfully restore your Shure V15 type III to similar levels it had when it was equipped with the now obsolete Shure VN35E. If you don't mind having lower output quality than when new, the $15 cheapie will also fit and make noise but we refuse to carry it here.

> 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.

Perfect replacement.
My original VN35HE needle lasted for more than 35 years. When it finally died I thought I'd need a new cartridge. I was surprised to find this replacement for such a low cost. It was not too good to be true. It fit perfectly. It is a spot on replica of the original, and it sounds great. There is no visible or discernible difference between this and the original. Not sure if it will last another 35 years (or if my Dual 1246 will, or if I will) but so far it has performed beautifully.

Shure VN35E Copy
Bought this one for a V15III. While not on the same level as the original Shure stylus it's still a good buy. Sounded very nice with no tracking issues at all. Passed all but the most rigorous sections of the Shure test record. Good price, good company and a great group of people!!

Excellent!
V-15 III owners rejoice! I've compared this to my OEM stylus and to my ears this stylus matches the sound. The SAS brings more detail out of the music but sometimes I miss that Shure sound and this stylus will provide it without using your rare OEM stylus. Great buy and highly recommended.

Mr
I had an untested V15 Type 3 cartridge on hand for many years but due to the high cost of an original Shure replacement I never bothered to get one. Now, thirty years later, your new copy stylus arrived within a week (to NZ) which was very quick delivery for standard freight. The shaft was a slightly tight fit but went in with acceptable pressure. I installed the cartridge to my Technics SL1700 Mk2 deck (swapping out my Ortophon MC-10 mc) and was immediately impressed with the overall quality of reproduction. I cannot fault the sound with tracking set at 1.75 grams. It is very good value and I recommend it highly as a replacement for the original.

Shure V15
Very satisfied with the product. Came across the world very quickly. Difference i noticed compared to the original stylus is that it needs a slightly hevier tracking force (about 1.5-1.75 grams). Anyway, its a very good stylus and very proffesional service. Big thumbs up.

Competent Replacement
Is this stylus in the same league with my genuine Shure V15 stylus? Well, not exactly. But it is in the same ballpark. It has fine timbre and nuance, tracks well,seems to ride under the pops and clicks nearly as well as the original and even seems to give more output.It will now take up the majority of play time and give the old stylus some needed time off.

Share V15 series 111 replacement
Is exactly what I was looking for as replacement. Web purchase was straight forward, delivery was prompt, and intact upon arrival. It would be great if all web purchases were as good as this. Even the follow up request for review is well mannered. Would definitely use site again for any similar needs in the audio environment, and beyond if supported.

Shure VN35E type stylus replacement
The product performs as advertised. I tested the stylus on several albums - by Charlie Byrd, Eric Dolphy, and Son House - and the Beethoven Violin Concerto. They all sounded great. Ordering and shipping were very efficient.

JAPAN-MADE BLISS .3x.7 mil Elliptical
The item was received after a very long promenade from Oregon to Beaconsfield in QC. Nobody's fault. Just the way it goes when one chooses to ship via USPS. As far as the service provided by Turntables & Needles it was top notch, as usual. The product itself works fine and it was as advertised. In fact I could not tell the difference between the original Shure VN35E stylus and the Japan-Made Bliss. Most likely because at my age I'm going deaf or simply because the original stylus was still in very good shape. Perhaps if there are any differences in the sound quality with one or the other stylus, it could only be assessed via measurements of the signals produced by the cartridge using a test record (that I do not have). Be as it may, I would buy the product again if the need arises.

Stylus
While not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination, I think I've got a pretty good ear. This stylus is, in my opinion, indistinguishable from the ones available to us in the days of the great stereo wars in terms of sound quality. It's so great to be able to listen to my old vinyl again and have it sound just the way it used to! This product rocks!

Defective stylus received but they made good
The first stylus I received was defective; it caused a distortion in one channel. After contacting Turntable Needles, they sent me a new one before I had even returned the old one. The new stylus works fine. Wish I could give more than 5 stars for customer service!

Stylus 764-DE-copy for Shure V15 III
I wasn't expecting much from this stylus for my silver body, pristine Shure V15 III. I had a brand new Ed Saunders stylus on the V15, but I have never liked the sound of it: lifeless, lacking detail, quite subdued for my taste. So, I decided to purchase this inexpensive copy from TurntableNeedles. Lo and behold! contrary to my expectations, it brought my V15 to life. I'm now enjoying this high compliance cartridge on my Dual 701, 601 and 731Q a lot. No need to invest hundreds of bucks on an exotic stylus to obtain excellent sound; this Bliss stylus is good enough to give one lots of detailed, clear, non fatiguing, hi-fi sound for hours and hours of pleasurable listening with the fantastic Shure V15 III.

Jico 764 DE
The Jico stylus sound quality is better than the Phanistiel I had on it, though it seemed fine as well (except on some trumpet high notes on a Stan Kenton Adventures In Blues Lp the sound would break up, the Jico and Bliss sound fine here). But after installing a wood body on my Shure V15 III cartridge I was trying to reinstall the Jico cantilever into the unusually tight fitting cartridge and it snapped off. So I reordered from Turntable Needles but now they only had the Bliss version, however it too sounds great but i think the Jico may have been slightly better. I am no expert on the subject, just your average listener.
