SHOULD BE CHANGED AFTER PLAYING EACH RECORD SIDE:-
This has always been advised by manufacturers to prevent irrecoverable record damage
(See the "When do I change the Gramophone Needle? " Article in the Help & Information Section of this website.
I change mine after playing each record side, very occasionally two sides if the second side is of little importance, consequently I get through quite a few needles.
I have now given up supplying Gramophone Needles and a friend who has been involved in Gramophones for more decades than he would like to remember has taken over from me.
I'm positive you will receive the same high quality service that I have given in the past.
They come in packets of 100; but before ordering think about ordering in bulk to save money and ensure you don't run out.
300 might sound a lot, but you will soon get through them.
The Needles are engineered to precision standards for members of the Gramophone Fraternity. People often remark on the superb sound quality obtained from the Gramophone Needles. The probable reason is that they have only experienced poorly manufactured Needles that are being imported from the Far East. Apart from inferior sound, permanent record damage is risked by using needles from an unreliable source.
Gramophone Needles can partially control the volume of your Gramophone (See the "Gramophone Volume too Loud / Soft? " Article in the Help & Information Section of this Website)
Various "Tones" of Needle can be supplied
Medium Tone - Unchanged Volume (Normally requested)
Soft Tone - Reduced Volume
Loud Tone - Increased Volume
(The Needles come in packets of 100; you can order all one "Tone" or a mixture of "Tones")
