Sapphire Embossing Stylus (Long Shank) by Presto Recording Co

Regular price $85.00

These styli are meant for embossing on Polycarbonate or PETG plastic.

This product is for the long shank variety.

  • Short Shanks for Grampian, Audax, Presto 5C, Mag, Fairchild, RCA, Olsen
  • Long Shanks for Presto 1c, 1d

Fidelity-wise, they are a very good mid-point between lo-fi tungsten and high fidelity diamond cutting styli.  They have much more clarity and high end and a very low noise floor when compared to tungsten styli, but they don't require heat or vacuum, and are less expensive for the hi-fi diamond styli. 

Your results will vary depending on equipment and experience, but we typically get at least 200-300 7" sides at least out of each one. Once the needle starts to get noisy after typical use, you can rotate the stylus in the head a couple times to get new, quiet faces.

Our Needles can be resharpened for $45 each.  We may also be able sharpen your old, chipped sapphire cutting styli for $45 (must have decent stone left). Please contact lathecuts//at//yahoo//dawt///cawm for questions.
