Guest crawlspace Posted November 22, 2007 Report Share Posted November 22, 2007 Some time ago I was given a Thorens TD124 turntable, #58216. I know it is at least from 1963. It never worked, so I just left it alone. Tonight however, I turned it on, and after 5 minutes, it started to spin real slow, and then got up to speed. It played a 33 rpm record, however it did not sound to good. I took the headshell off and the needle did not appear to be too good. It looks like the original cartridge. It says "ffss 4" on the front of it and on the bottom it says in handwritten "AE 9752". It also says British Patents ####, made in England. It looks like there is a little noose that holds the needle in place, weird. The headshell says "ortofon" on the top if it. I went online to look for a replacement, but could not find anything that looks like it. Does anyone know what replacement I would get for this? In my searches, it looks like I would need a magnetic cartridge. Is this correct?Thanks in advance for any help.Mike Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
