Stanton has ceased production of cartridges and styli. Anything listed here is in short supply and may no longer be available. All items are offered on a first-come, first-served basis!
Stanton 500 LP styli are currently unavailable.
Our generic Stanton 500 78 rpm stylus ($45) has a 2.7 Elliptical diamond. This stylus will give generally satisfactory results for casual listening, but a much cleaner sound will usually be obtained through the use of a custom ground stylus.
Only a handful of custom ground Stanton sizes are left in stock.
Conical & Truncated Conical (C & TC) Styli are $150 each. Conical styli are useful for vertical recordings, and for lateral recordings with more pronounced groove wear. (When playing worn records, better results may also be obtained by using slightly larger styli sizes.)
Elliptical & Truncated Elliptical (E & TE) Styli are $175 each. Elliptical styli are great for playing lateral (normal) 78rpm recordings that are in above average condition.
