Pfanstiehl is known for using magnets in styli that aren't supposed to have them, e.g. moving iron styli such as Stanton/Pickering and Empire. JICO is usually better about this and usually doesn't put magnets where they're not supposed to be.

Hm, very strange. I don't know the make of the white, it came with the cart. The Tonar is different, and I suppose there can be something inside the plastic, behind the rubber cushion. But it's new, and the only working one I have... :(
