Item:133098965826It's time to dig out those old 45's and have a party with The Redhead On your Classic RCA Victor 45 RPM Record Player Ever since we introduced our replacement idler wheel, the only one available featuring a genuine Oilite bearing for superior performance and precision made for the Classic RCA Victor RP -168 & RP-190 45 RPM Automatic Record Changers, many of our customers have requested, and a few demanded, that we design and manufacture the highest quality replacement cartridge. The REDHEAD Cartridge is now available! Step One We pre-test every cartridge for sound quality and output in our Blue-Arm test jig featuring a custom made plug-in tone-arm. Step Two We believe that soldering output leads to a cartridge is an unprofessional shortcut. The amount of heat necessary to insure a good connection creates the risk of damage to the cartridge with degraded sound quality that may show up now or later. We assemble precision connectors and install using no heat. Step Three The cartridge mounting angle was confirmed by comparing to a commercial turntable by Innotech that uses the identical cartridge. Step Four Every completed Redhead cartridge is tested for exceptional performance in our Clear-Arm test jig Step Five Installation Instructions The RCA 45 player must be in good condition. The idler wheel, rubber motor mounts and cycle cam need to be checked and replaced as necessary. The tone arm must move freely with no binding. Clean and lubricate the motor to insure correct speed. 1) Please handle the "Redhead" cartridge carefully. 2) Remove the old cartridge 3) Install "Redhead" cartridge using the old screws and new washers supplied. 4) Reattach leads, positive side (+) is identified with a red dot on cartridge. 5) The ground or third wire is not necessary, tape off or remove. 6) Adjust the correct tone-arm landing by referring to the instructions on the enclosed CD 7) The conversion cartridge weighs just about the same as the original cartridge however you may need to "fine-tune" the counterbalance for best performance. 8) This cartridge is rated for 2 to 4 grams of pressure. We have found that 4 grams provides excellent tracking in our test jig.
