Stanton T.62 stylus

Recommended Posts

Hello, i have a stanton T.62 turntable with the 500v3 cartridge. I want to replace the stylus  (N 500) and i realized that is really hard to find one. I am from Greece and i checked some stores here and through ebay-amazon and there is no replacement original needle. Can someone advice me one that can fit the cartridge? Also i am thinking that maybe i should change the cartridge, is that possible and if yes can someone advice me one? I have the turntable just to listen and not for scratch-dj and i would like to upgrade it in the near future so i wouldn't like to spend a lot of money.

There are copy stylus available for the Stanton 500 and these really cheap ones are fine for listening but I wouldn't trust them for any DJ related use, it's probably the quickest and easiest option for you though.

You could easily change the cartridge and there is a huge choice out there but if your asking the question I'm guessing it's something you haven't done before so do some research and make sure you are comfortable working with small fiddly and fragile things before you start plus make sure you understand what is needed to set your table up for a different cartridge, tracking force, anti skate etc.

 

Also with your table as it has a straight arm with a straight headshell table I wouldn't get anything that doesn't have a conical stylus tip because getting anything other than a conical stylus to track properly will be fun. Pretty much all carts designed for DJ use have a conical stylus.
