Hi, check ebay for 32 awg to 34 awg tonearm wire. Some sellers have kits you can buy with the cartridge clips already install or just plain ends on the wire. One trick to get the coating off the wire is to use a lighter to burn the coating off. Then use you finger nails to gently pull the burnt coating off to expose the clean wire. I always tin my wire before I solder it in place. Tinning just makes it easier to solder the wire back in place. I hope this helps
