    I accidentally broke off the stylus yesterday. Shure stopped making the cartridge and replacement stylus ages ago. Any OEM stylus are rare and outrageously expensive on Ebay.

    LP gear has a stylus for another Shure model that they claim fits perfectly, just looks a bit odd. I will give it a try first. There is also a substitute LP gear cartridge apparently as good as the Shure, I am not quite sure I want to spend $199 though.

    I always liked my V15 cartridges. I hope the replacement does the trick for you!
