This VM95 Series cartridge with 3 mil conical stylus fits half-inch mount turntables and is designed specifically to play older 78 RPM records only.

This listing combines the AT-VM95SP and AT-HS6BK black headshell. The cartridge comes pre-mounted to the headshell making it quick and easy to attach to any tonearm with a half inch universal mount.

While this cartridge is designed to play 78 RPM mono records, it is, nevertheless, a stereo cartridge, allowing users to choose between the left and right channels, which can be especially helpful in archiving applications to minimise noise and distortion.

The durable, low-resonance housing includes threaded inserts that enable the cartridge to be mounted to the headshell with just two screws.
