    For old audio equipment buffs


    I have several old audio components, cables, jacks, plugs, etc. These date back from the time of monaural. I also have Pickering and Stanton phonograph pickup cartridges The Pickering flips over; one way is for 78 rpm records, the flip side is for 33 1/3 and 45 rpms. In addition to that I have a couple Shure crystal phonograph cartridges.
    I also have some “brand new” 60-70 year old Recaton “needles” for playing 78 RPM records.

    To anyone interested in audio equipment of the late 1930’s through the 1960’s these are probably treasures; to anyone else they are probably junk. Pics of some items are attached.

    They are free to anyone who wants them.
    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    Ooh, I remember the pickering cartridges with the flip-over needle.

    Generous offer Jim, but I'm already overrun with spare cables and such. I still use 1/4 phone plugs on my guitar gear, and still have a fair amount of stuff that uses RCA plugs. I used to make all of my own cables, but these days I can buy pre-made cables for less than the cost of the parts to make my own. Plus, they tend to be better made than the ones I make myself.
