Zafira brand replacement stylus/ diamond needle collection with cherry wood case
This is a PayPal only, no reserve auction for new old stock diamond replacement needles, aka stylus's, Zafira brand, made to retrofit many manufactures cartridges for turntables. No turntable is included in this auction. This auction is for over two hundred replacement needles, stylus for cartridges that came on various vintage turntables. This collection came from a old Hi-Fi store that closed out of their analog turntable replacement stylus department. Most are still factory sealed. They come in a gorgeous all cherry wood three tray deep slotted container. It is 22 & 1/2" deep, 19" wide, and 6 & 1/2" height. It is large, and a bit heavy, so shipping will be a bit. This is not a complete collection, as many were sold out of the very nice old display case included; over two hundred needles are in this diamond tip stylus collection.
The sectional trays are labeled for various brands that Zafria made replacement stylus for, such as Acutex, ADC, Audio Technica, Astatic, BSR, Empire, Fisher, Kenwood, Magnavox, National Technics, EPS, Nagaoka, Pickering, Piezo, Pioneer, Sansui, Sanyo, Sony, Tetrad, Toshiba, JVC. This auction is for the entire batch, Each of which usually sell on line for $8.99 a piece! and I counted two hundred and nine, and the gorgeous all cherry wood storage case is included! If sold individually, that is a $1,878.00 re-seller's value! And the incredibly nice perfect fit case is included. All for a no reserve opening bid of only $39.00! The 1st three pictures show each of the trays open, and the 4th picture is from the back of the case, to show the beautiful tongue and groove construction, this was one expensive case!
The replacement needles are of various types, flip double sided, and push/ pull on and off. A few were taken out of the packaging to examine, then put back in, but again, most are factory sealed new old stock, with over two hundred in the case!
I will start this auction off at a very low price of $39.99, with no reserve! Please see pictures, what you see is what you will get. I have no way to know if one of these will fit a particular turntable's cartridge, but if you are looking for a vintage replacement stylus collection, with an incredible case that could be the center piece display for a store, or collector, you just found it, at a super bargain price!
The container is approximately 6 + 1/2" height by 22 & 1/2" deep, by 19" wide, with the 3 pull out drawers of stylus in them.
This container with the sizable collection of vintage replacement needles, and the case will be shipped by UPS in a solid box, fully insured, so it will arrive safely at your door. Please This is a no reserve auction, not an on approval style auction. I can not guarantee any of the replacement needles in this auction will fit any specific turntable's cartridge you may have, the auction is for the whole batch, great for a reseller, a store, or collector. Payment is expected within three days of auction end. Low, low, low starting bid asked, with no reserve. U S A only this auction please. The price to ship may seem a bit high, because the container the collection comes in is large, and has some weight to it. Thanks for checking out my auction.
