LP Record Basic Tally Counter
The BLISS™ LP Side Counter helps you track how many sides of a record you've played. You simply push it once for each side you play. Then you simply reference our cheat sheet to approximate record sides played to hours of usage.
Now at six bucks, this is not
a timer for your stylus, but is instead a tool to allow you to count how many record sides you have played so as to remove record needle replacement guesswork for the price of a bowl of soup. It's not the price ($20-$70) of typical new stylus like others charge, because then it's like what's the point? (unless we are talking about high end audiophile styli or cartridges) A more accurate hours counter would require you to install a sensor or remember to push both a start and stop button each time you start and stop the record.
In order to provide you a single button press simple and cheap solution to estimate cartridge, vacuum tube, platter belt, LP record or stylus tip wear, we simply searched how long the average side of a typical LP record has been over the decades and have included our simple cheat sheet with the tally counter which also includes generally accepted industry standard wear life estimates for both sapphire and diamond tips so you can have a pretty good idea of when it's a good time to start thinking about a new needle. Since several local conditions affect stylus life, this basic counter with our cheat sheet is much better than having no idea or waiting until the sound deteriorates as well as being accurate enough for all but the most high end collections.
Push button one time to activate LCD display.
Push button one more time to advance the counter by one at any time during the playback of one side of a record. If playing a song here and there, advance counter by one for roughly 22 minutes of playback.
Includes one AG3 type battery.
LCD display has no back light.
Does not retain memory when replacing battery, but has auto display shutoff display so battery
You will receive a random color. Our bright colors help you notice the counter so it gets remembered.
We did not research typical side times for 16, 45, nor 78RPM records.
