Conical stylus for Shure M55E cartridge

Date Updated: September 5, 2017 FAQ #3205
Question:
I usually use the N55E elliptical stylus in my M55E cartridge, of course. However, for slightly scuffed/scratched vinyl, I have a conical cartridge, (marked "75C", found it in an old turntable, most likely) that I use with very good results on noisy LPs - it's quieter, though less detailed. I don't know how much wear there is on it, and want to replace it. Can someone recommend a decent diamond conical stylus that I can use in my M55E for vinyl that's a little beat up?
Answer:


The N44-7 stylus is conical (0.0007" radius) and tracks at 1.5 to 3 grams. It will fit the M55E body.
