Can't go wrong with this one! April 4, 2019
Reviewer: James Crowley from Machesney Park, IL United States  
This is my favorite needle to use for 78’s. This is NOT an elliptical needle as the parts number suggests. Looking at it under a microscope reveals that it’s a conical type. The microscope also reveals how smoothly it’s polished which is probably why it’s my favorite defacto one to use. 78’s sure sound good on it and I highly recommend it. I have other needles in my collection some of them elliptical which have their benefits –this all depends on the condition of the 78. I wish Grado would make a line contact needle for 78’s! –this would be the only needle to use for 78’s. Line contact stylus for 78’s would cost more but the payback in quality is huge.  I have a line contact type of needle I use for LP’s and it’s incredible how a used LP could sound.  Line contact stylus is the only way to go with records.

78E replacement stylus June 1, 2017
Reviewer: Rev. Edward Thayer from Port Jervis, NY United States  
I need to get another headshell before I can try it out. Looking forward to it. I expect the elliptical shape will ride higher it the grooves of my records producing a clearer sound.

Cartridges & Stylii August 27, 2015
Reviewer: John Parichuk from Asbury, NJ United States  
I have been working in the electronics field since 1966, first as a 16 year old and later, 22 years in the Navy.  And, I am still at it. Your cartridges are exceptional.  I have been recommending them to friends, especially the 78 rpm units.  I personally chose the Grado Prestige 78RPM Model 78E.  I have been doing a lot of 78 rpm polka record restoration.  The 78E works beautifully for this purpose as it rides a bit higher up on the groove sides.  I also found another benefit using this cartridge.  I have a very early LP that was playing with a lot of distortion on my Empire turntable with a Audio Technica cartridge.  The stylus was riding down towards the bottom of the groove.  I decided to try it on my Garrard with the 78E installed.  Viola! It plays with zero distortion!
