"used" 78 stylus for Ortofon TM Cartridge

Hello, I need to "recover" just one 78 of my wife's dad singing in college back in 1930's. She has never heard this recording.

I have a MAC, Audacity. etc. I have a Luxman turntable that will play at 45. I have an ortofon TM cartridge with a 14 stylus. Can I use that stylus or should I find the 78 stylus? I really do not want to pay $65 for this one "rescue." Any suggestions?

  1. Given that most 78s were subject to appallingly crude pickup arms and styluses by modern standards you probably won't do any new damage using a stylus designed for microgroove.

    Whether it will sound correct will only emerge if you can persuade Audacity to change the speed as radically as you propose.
  2. Thank you. I will post the results of this "journey." -dan
