Here are selection of unused old sock of special gramophone needles. As a rule steel gramophone needles are used once then replaced, but these are “Long Play” needles that play several sides before needing to be changed. The Columbia Chromium Long Play needles are supposed to be able to play 60 sides. Of course these needles, being harder, will not wear out so quickly but presumably the record will. £5 per packet, including postage
The HMV “Silent Stylus” needles are able to play 100 sides before changing and these are suitable for use with “Hyper Sensitive Pickups”. I am often asked for these but am not sure what systems use them. £5 per packet including postage. I have only one packet remaining.
The single packet of ten Columbia needles contain rare “Miniature” thorn needles, so can be used as other “Fibre” needles and re-sharpened several times before discarding. £10 for the packet including postage.
