Above are various types of needles commonly found in JC PENNEY/MCS 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. <
