Researching a stylus, or cartridge, can be frustrating. There are hundreds of types and applications, but are specific to your particular make and model. The first series of Newcomb used a GE push/turn assembly. In the middle of production, Newcomb used a flip over Asatic cartridge/stylus combination and in the latest years, they used an altogether different flip over setup. Many times, a seller can provide the correct stylus if you describe your record player.
THE MID YEARS
All Newcomb record players used the Astatic 13t, or 81t flip over cartridge. The stylus and cartridge are one in the same and fit into a socket mounted to the underside of the tone arm. The 13t is green and reproduces stereo, while the 81t is black and produces mono. While other manufacturers may vary the color, this is how it all began. This cartridge has two needles; one for lp and the other for 78. If you're playing 78's, take caution not to purchse a cartridge with two lp needles. They do exist. Both of these cartridges are becoming scarce, expensive and cause vinyl wear. Replacing it with a P-228 is less expensive, is gentler on vinyl and plays lp and 78 records.

The earliest transcription players used the GE push/turn cartridge. These needles were not gentle to vinyl but those were the days. If you have the older models, needles are still available, as well as the red push/turn button. Each picture is hyper linked and will take you to the seller.
