This site has information about varieties of gramophone needles:

The web author has done some good work for all. Do you have favorites or some to stay away from?

My favorite newly manufactured needles are sold by Mike Child of Bedford, England who also trades on ebay as "soundgen." If purchased in bulk, they are very economical, even when overseas postage is added in. I like his "soft tone" needles which fall between most other seller's soft and medium tones.


Another source of excellent quality new needles in Holland is from a fellow who trades under the name Zwarte Schijf. I bought some needles in bulk from him at the Union show. His website just shows needles in tins including NOS. You may want to contact him to see what is has.
