Default My experiences......

from my days in audio shops in the 70s was that these guys marketed alternatives to all the ceramic cartridge needles that were available back in the 60s and 70s.

They did market Shure, Stanton and other MM type cartridge needles but they generally didn't sound as good as the originals.

OTOH, they had far better margins for the dealer than the manufacturers.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,

David

I had not seen that name in decades!

They sold low cost alternative replacement stylii. I remember the big catalog with virtually every commercially available stylus listed.

I also remember they sold the flip/flop stylus that played 45/33s on one side and flip it over to play 78s.

Im surprised they are still around
