V15 Pro S - tracking force and stylus care

FAQ #2520 Updated October 22, 2008

Question:

1. I recently purchased a replacement stylus for my older Shure cartridge (V 15/Pro S). The instructions that came with the stylus list specs for "Tip Tracking Force" and "Total Tone Arm Force." Which one do I use for setting the tracking force on my turntable?

2. Is it safe to use a Discwasher brand stylus brush and cleaning fluid on my stylus?

Answer:

1. The "brush" requires an extra 1/2 gram of tracking weight to be set on the tone arm. So a tone arm setting of 1.5 grams equals a tip tracking force of 1 gram when the "brush" is used.

2. Yes, it is safe.
