Installing the cartridge/stylus assembly in the Califone, Audiotronics,
Newcomb and many other phono's using the 89T cartridge/stylus.

f
89t mono flip-under holder
NLA (shown for reference only)
New replacement 89t plug-in monophonic cartridge/stylus assembly that
fits most of the Audiotronix, Califone, Newcomb and many other record
players of the 60's - 70's era. This also fits the standard flip-under holder
that was very popular as a replacement in the late 50's - 70's. Although
these are monophonic only, they are compliant with stereo recordings.
Unlike the original "mono" cartridges, you can safely play stereo records
without fear of damage.
This is designed to plug into a holder with a "flip-under" action (see right
image above).
Please note although this stylus is no easier to break than others, care
must be used when replacing and using any needle, stylus assembly. You
cannot return a broken stylus.
Caution,
this stylus (or any stylus) can be easily damaged by:

improper handling when installing
raking it across the record or turntable
dropping the arm on the record or turntable
allowing the stylus to come in contact with the moving turntable
surface
Observe the images above and note the proper way to handle and install
the stylus/cartridge assembly. When removing and installing, grip only by
the small nubs on either side of stylus. When removing the
stylus/cartridge assembly, grip with thumb & forefinger and pull it forward,
out of holder, note which side the tiny ribs are on and make sure you push
the new one in place the same way the old one came out. Never handle or
apply pressure to the center part of the assembly, that is the stylus
(needle) and it can be damaged with improper handling.
I hope this helps you to install your new stylus/cartridge assembly.
