We are sure you will love our new website, but if you prefer, you may still scroll down to use our old website. We have all research areas completely intact for our past customers who may prefer to use the navigation style with which they are familiar. New visitors may find the simple listing of part numbers on our old site valuable until we get all these lists transferred to the new site.

Above are various types of needles commonly found in BIC turntables. When looking for a replacement needle
simply match the needle type you have with the drawing above. To remove the needle assembly for comparison to
above chart, usually you can grasp it with your thumb and index finger and pull down and away from the cartridge.
The term "needle" or "stylus" is the assembly (for examples see above table)
which inserts (or 'snaps') into the cartridge assembly. The cartridge is the whole assembly which "plugs in" (P-mount)
or Screws onto (½" mount) the end of the Tonearm. Usually you only have to replace the needle as the cartridge itself
rarely fails, but when you do buy a whole cartridge it automatically comes with a needle assembly installed.
