Vinyl discs are made of polyvinyl chloride (pvc) and a small percentage (usually less than 25 percent) of "fillers", stabilizer, pigment, anti-static substances, etc.

" Hall's fibre needles (he used capital letters as victor did for tungs-tone) were made from bamboo imported from japan.

Companies claimed that the oily substance in the bamboo acted as a lubricant which would polish and smooth grooves each time a record is played.

There is no doubt, however, that straight-tonearm technology is a significant improvement upon the traditional s-shaped tonearm. They always benefit from some basic maintenance, which will include a new idler wheel.

If discarding a needle after one play seems wasteful or tedious, use a tungs-tone needle (if you can find one!). The tonearm either pivots to keep the stylus in the record groove, or is suspended by a mechanism that enables it to stay oriented in the same direction while it moves across the record.
