RE: 78 rpm stylus for 33 rpm records? Can it hurt?

Hi John,

I do like to speak precisely, so thanks for clearing that up. It appears that if we are talking conical styli, the 78 stylus will just ride higher in the groove of the Lp and should work better than we might expect.

In your first post on this you stated that with the 78 stylus on an Lp one would lose high frequency response. That is what I would have assumed, but in the light of what you just pointed out I have to wonder why a 78 stylus would be any worse than a conical stylus intended for Lps.
