Stylus Size

Stylus size

Rule of thumb; the older the record, the larger the tip size!

•           78 RPM records before 1947 use typically a tip of >65µ

•           Electrical 78 RPM recordings beginning late 40-ties use a tip of 65µ

•           For Mono LP’s (Microgroove) use 25µ (for late Mono’s 15µ)

•           Early Stereo records (33 1/3 and/ or 45 RPM) use 15µ

•           … and for all other records use whatever you like best.
