  • Caroline Portable Record Player

    Has anyone else on here got one of these little portables - Caroline GS-270 ? I am trying to get a replacement stylus - but no amount of "googling" has proven successful. Please help with guidance if you can. Thanks

    Have a look at Musonic . seem like helpful people ,if youre not sure what you need you can email photos of your cart /stylus and they should know what you need. Haven't used them personally , I just happened to read an old thread on here last night where someone recommended them for a similar situation to yours.

      The stylus pictured in the listing is a BSR TC8. This is a real record grinder, being mono only, tracking heavily (generally at over 7 grams!) and having little compliance. Styli are cheap and available online. The 'Vaco Luxor' type should also fit.

      If I had one of those players, I'd want to fit it with a slightly more recent stereo compatible ceramic cart, which at least would allow playback of stereo records with less harm!

        Thanks for your help guys - I have ordered a stylus from musonic. The player only plays 45's but has a pitch control !!!
        I'll report on its performance.
        I thought I might buy another of these players and go busking DJing.
        Blimey !!!

          I'd love to know how busking DJing goes down. You'd have to dress up as something of course.
