1K Club - QQ Shooting Star
- Jul 5, 2010
I can think of one way.Puzzling indeed, I don't see how that would happen, unless a badly worn Shibata stylus was the stylus in a phono cartridge with poor tracking ability, which would cause damage to the upper half of the record groove.
A cheapo record player with a 2-mil "compromise" 78/LP stylus played the record, damaging the upper part of the groove. I keep wondering what stylus is in those cheapo 3-speeds they sell today.
