78 RPM replacement for CEC CZ-800 CZ800 needle stylus
The 78 RPM replacement for the CEC CZ-800 CZ800 needle stylus is specifically designed for 78 RPM records. It features a spherical 3.0 mil diamond for long playing life, more effective tracing of 78 RPM record grooves and good rendition of voice and music.
A very common misconception is that you can use a LP stylus for playing 78 RPM records. This is one quick and sure way to damage the 78 RPM record grooves. To maintain the playback fidelity of your 78 record you really need to use a stylus designed for 78 RPM records, otherwise with just a single playing, you could ruin the fidelity of the record grooves. Moreover, the LP stylus is much narrower than the 78 RPM record groove hence the tip will slide to the bottom of the groove where debris has collected for many decades. This results in extraordinarily high-surface noise.
