Tungsten Wire for Phonograph Stylus

Tungsten Wire for Music as a Type of Phonograph Stylus

Tungsten wire phonograph stylus or Tungs-Tone is a type of phonograph stylus. Tungsten wire phonograph stylus are constructed from tungsten wire, which is held in a metal shank. Unlike a steel stylus, tungsten have a cylindrical rather than a conical shape, meaning that the cross-section of the tungsten wire remains the same as the stylus wears down, which in turn means that tungsten wire may be used for several play.

Typically, a new steel needle is required for every record played on an old acoustic phonograph. This is because the record contains abrasive material. In the first few silent tracks this abrasion hones the steel needle to a profile that tracks the grooves properly. The needle continues to wear as it plays the record, so that by the end its diameter has increased to the point where the sharp edges may damage the grooves on subsequent plays.Tungsten wire phonograph stylus have high hardness to decrease the wear.
