A Question about Southern Library 45s.
« on: September 10, 2021, 05:39:55 AM »
Do they use a 78 stylus, or a regular 33 stylus like a normal 45 record? I'm planning on buying one.

Regular stylus.  Even though they're a 78 rpm speed, they were made in the 1960s and are on vinyl, not the breakable shallack.

I was talking about the 45 rpm records they also made. They are 7 inches.

For 45 rpm discs, you use 33 rpm needles.

I have Southern on 78 rpm and on 45 rpm from around 1964.
Sorry for the confusion

I own several 45's from this series and find that the sound is better with a dedicated monaural needle than with a normal stereo needle.
