“Sold G800 for £3.50”
So, having bought a new record stylus/cartridge a few weeks ago, I discover that – like dustbugs – a second-hand market for used styli.
G800 refers to my Goldring G800.
35 years later – that’s THIRTY-FIVE YEARS later – you can still buy a new stylus for a G800 cartridge, and for a mere £8.50.
I don’t know what’s more astonishing… that I was able to sell a used stylus in 1974 or that someone is still manufacturing the same thing 3½ decades later and be able to sell it for just £8.50?!
