Goldring - D42 - Replacement Stylus for G1042 Cartridge

Goldring - D42 - Replacement Stylus for G1042 Cartridge

The Goldring D42 is the replacement stylus for both the G1042 and the G1040 moving-magnet cartridges.  This stylus is a nude, natural-diamond stylus with a Gyger S profile.  Cartridge headshell piece required for operation. 

The stylus profile is the main factor governing overall sound quality in a cartridge and the shape of the Gyger S with its 6 μm radius allows it to trace the smallest groove detail with complete fidelity. Mid-range tonality is incredibly accurate and precise with high frequency sibilance banished. The extended side wall contact of the Gyger-S diamond also gives the 1042 unsurpassed resolution of the fine groove modulations, producing an exceptionally detailed, smooth and musical sound.
