Suitable for all wind up gramophones . ( SUBJECT TO ADVICE BELOW ) Gramophone needles we supply are made in the UK from high quality steel, they are one play needles, that is they should be used once only, this has always been so ever since steel needles have been manufactured. Persistent reuse will result in severe damage to the record and render it unplayable.
The needles are available in four tones LOUD, MEDIUM, SOFT and EXTRA SOFT TONE basically the thicker the needle the louder the sound it produces.
For playing 1950's records which are very loud we recommend EXTRA SOFT , For pre 1950 records MEDIUM or SOFT , Acoustic pre 1915 records MEDIUM , very quiet records such as spoken word and some early acoustic records LOUD .
If you play records outside you also need louder needles than when playing indoors
Occasionally a soundbox will have a needle hole which is too small to take Loud tone needles or the needles screw is too short to tighten up on an Extra Soft tone needle , if you find this is happening return the needles for a full refund or free replacement of another tone.
UK buyers may collect needles , springs , records and gramophones from our Stall at the Westway Market , under the Westway in Portobello Road , London on Saturdays , or from Spitalfields Market on Thursdays or our Bedford workshop other weekdays contact us by email for appointment or confirmation click the links for more details ,
