Perhaps one day Mr. Ledermann might have the cactus needle cantilever option in his re-tipping services if he figures out how to do it. I wouldn't put it past him. As for the Hyperion, I'd love to hear one. Someday, perhaps....
imagine the endless discussions and flame wars that will brew between the adherents and detractors of various species of cacti from different geographical locations and from different areas of the cacti itself:
"The mid-bass attenuation of the cantilever made from the needle from the very top of the barrel cactus found just southwest of Tuscan ..."
The debate would extend to the political arena because of inferior foreign-sourced cacti with cheaper needle-picking labor overhead :)
In the 78 rpm days there were many who preferred cactus needles to the more commonly used steel. As I recall, they were usually good for one play.
Apparently there is some vindication for their preference.
And, yes, there were discussions of which were the best, and cactus needle lovers were often quite selective. Fortunately, the cactus needles cost something less than $7500.
the cactus huggers who will demand government intervention to stop the "Pricker Pluckers" from cannibalizing the cantilevers.
