Picked up this turntable this weekend. No Manuel and no needle! Anyone know what type of needle I need to look for? Thanks
The needle / stylus you need really depends on the type of cartridge you have on you turntable. If a cartridge is present look it over and see if there is a name or model number on it you may have to remove it from the head shell to see if it's on the top of the cartridge, and then check the web for sites that sell new stylus. Now if there is no cartridge installed on you turntable then you can get any 1/2" mount cartridge you like again just check the web and see what you can afford and buy that one. Some good brand cartridges are Audio-Technica (which may have come on your turntable originally), Shure, Ortofon, Stanton, there are 100s of manufacturers and each have 100's of different models. The best thing to do is ask some of your friends that are into vinyl and see what they like. Sorry i can't help you out better but its very hard to tell someone what cartridge to buy because its all in what you like and how you like your music to sound. You can check vinyl engines for your manual VE in the header this sites homepage.
