Tarnish on the stylus shaft housing

FAQ #2132 Updated April 09, 2008


I just received a replacement stylus VN35MR for my old V15 Type III. I noticed that the copper stylus housing is moderately tarnished. Will this effect performance? Should it be cleaned in some way before inserted into the cartridge?


The tarnish will have no effect on performance. Clean it at your own risk as you might damage the stylus shank during the cleaning process.
