WOODEN GRAMOPHONE NEEDLES FOR SALE
(Often referred to as Fibre or Thorn Needles)
THESE NEEDLES SHOULD BE RE-SHARPENED AFTER PLAYING EACH RECORD SIDE
This type of needle is described in the Topic "GRAMOPHONE NEEDLES - Wooden, Thorn & Fibre" on the Help & Information page of my website.
On most Soundboxes (Needle Holders) you will see the hole where the needle is inserted is triangular not round.
The reason for the triangular hole was to accommodate triangular wooden needles.
The Needles I have are assorted old original triangular needles, most of the brown ones are HMV "Fibre" Needles
I can't remember, but for reasons of description accuracy a few might have been used once.
Wooden Needles are very difficult to obtain these days
The Needles are in packs of 30
One packet of 30 assorted wooden Needles GBP14
Including UK Mainland Certified Royal Mail Second Class Postage
ONLY FOUR PACKS AVAILABLE
