LF/SWAP: Needle/Cartridge

Postby corecreatives » Mon Aug 04, 2014 7:05 pm

Hi,

It's been a while since I used my turntable because its needles are already worn.
I have two cartridges - one a Daitokyo, the other an Audio Technica AT90. Both have worn stylus.
But I also have an Audio Technica ATN3600L stylus which doesn't have a compatible cartridge.
It has never been used as I stupidly bought it a couple of years ago without making sure it was what I needed.

Basically I just want either (1) a new stylus for either of my current cartridges OR (2) a cartridge for my unused stylus.
I am willing to swap any of these if anyone can give me what I need to get my turntable up and running again.

Thank you in advance! Hoping there will be takers.

Suggest you get a new cartridge altogether. Bnew at91 starts around 1500. Bonus is you can use your at3600 stylus as spare for that cartridge.

the pmount At90 replacement may cost a little more but not if the you are using it with an adapter in which you can also use the at91

Thank you for your suggestion.
No, I don't use an adaptor for the AT90 as far as I know, aside from the L bracket to connect it to the headshell.
I guess you're right - best option is to get an AT91 cartridge.
Would you know any specific store or person where I can purchase one from?
