Introduction

A worn or damaged needle produces poor sound and destroys records. An average phonograph with a new needle spinning a clean record will produce concert quality sound with little distortion, producing a result very similar to the original.

The NP1 is a diamond stylus needle. The diamond needle is good for about 1,000 hours of playtime. The cartridge is made of durable ABS plastic. The NP1 Stylus needle plays 33 1/3, 45, and 78 RPM records.
