For Sale: NEW Pickering D3827 Stylus, In Box, Never Used

Post by BMRR » 19 Jul 2019 15:45

Up for sale is a new, never used Pickering D3827 stylus. This is a beautiful "nude" 2.7mil stylus for playing 78RPM shellac records. I opened the box so I could inspect the stylus and photograph it, but it has never been played.

The nude tip and the 2.7mil radius are what set this apart from all the other 78RPM styli on the market today: almost all of today's 78 styli are bonded rather than nude, and most are either 2.5mil or 3mil. 2.7mil is considered by many to be the ideal tip size for most 78RPM records.

Compared to the bonded industrial-grade tips found in the vast majority of 78RPM styli, the nude jewelry-grade tip of the Pickering D3827 provides better tracking (due to its lower mass) and less surface noise (due to its smoother finish).

These have gotten extremely difficult to find in recent years. I would be surprised if there are more than a handful of them left in the world.

When paired with a Pickering/Stanton U38, 380, or 381 cartridge, this might just be the ultimate way to play and listen to your 78s. :D

Price is a very reasonable $80. I'm only selling it because I'm trying to reduce the size of my cartridge/stylus collection.
