Variable-Reluctance Cartridge

General Electric VR


The General Electric VR cartridges have been designed for use in one, two or three speed record player equipment and feature a replaceable 'slide in' styli.

All of the stylus assemblies and styli available are catalogued in the chart in the booklet.

The single cartridges are equipped with a single slide in stylus mounted in a single stylus holder. The Dual cartridge is identical to this with one exception; two slide in styli are mounted in a dual stylus holder.

Two machine screws are supplied with these cartridges for mounting purposes. The dual cartridges are supplied with three selector knobs. The knob index is self explanatory with the point of the arrow pointing to the microgroove stylus.

Models RPX-040A, 041A, 061A, 063A, 0520A, 052A and 053A.
