Mystery Stylus - opportunity

Post by jdjohn » 19 Jun 2016 01:08

This mystery stylus with only the designation of 'BB' came with a Grace F9 I purchased. Although it has a very interesting diamond shape (see pics), it is not very stable on my F9, so it is free to anyone who can identify it and has a need for it.

I think I may know what it is, but I'm not sayin'. Let others guess; small hint - not from US or Japan.

I could be way off, of course.

Happy trails,
Larry B.

Pioneer PL-C9 is on the top of the cartridge.
The angle of your cantilever looks better.
Yes, that belongs to me. It came with a Pioneer PL-41 turntable.

Cheers,
