    Default shure m75 stylus help

    hi guys
    need some help regarding a shure m75.
    im not sure what stylus to go for to get this up and running,or rather fitting,as i take it the type two is different?.
    im assuming that as it doesnt say type two on it,and the owner doesn't know,just said it says m75 on it then it must be the first type

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Used-shure...vip=true&rt=nc

    so...do the shure experts out there know if this will be the right type/fitting stylus for my new ebay special?

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EVG-PM3144...19.m1438.l2649

    any help would be much appreciated.
    regards

    M75 is a good place to start and to be honest it dosen't matter which m75 you get as the new stylus available from JICO are sonically different in presentation to the old 1970s jobbies. You can try to buy a new old stock but they cost the earth and you have no way of knowing if it's been used, other stylii which are on offer suffer from the problem of not knowing how many hours they may have been used. I'd go to JICO website search for M75 stylus and then buy the one want. I wouldn't go anywhere else unless it's a trusted seller.

    If it's NOS (New old stock), then that is what it is. New (i.e. unused), old stock (items which are now no longer made by the original manufacturer). Anything else is either used/second hand/preowned, or is a 'generic' replacement.

    The M75 cartridge has an early-looking logo on the front, without a model designation, so will most certainly be a Mk. I. Any replacement stylus ought to be OK, but depending on the arm being used, stylii with an elliptical profile might not be suitable.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I have a few M75 cartridges and all are clearly marked Type 2. The earlier variants were just M75ED etc.

    hi guys
    thanks for all the help,so mk1 it is then
    so i take it a type two stylus wont fit into a mk1...just want to make sure i dont order the wrong type stlus...the seller said he used a ej one,a 75-6?
    ive been trying to read up on the shures,but my eyes start to glaze over with all the variations and different combos they made
    i was just thinking a n75ed,but i suppose jico only do one cheap type for it anyway if i go that route.
    regards

    I'm sure (no pun intended!) any N75 type stylus would fit.

    What arm are you using Paul?

    hi barry
    im using a linn lvx that came with the lenco gl75 i recently brought,
    i have the shure m55e with jico stylus on there at the moment,im tracking that at about 1.7 with a flat vta and it seems to be playing fine,i also like the general punchy sound of it to,which is always a plus.
    i was just curious if a m75 and jico would bring anything more to the table regarding sound quality,and if any other higher old skool shure models would do that to if they can be had at a sensible price.
    regards
