A recording or cutting stylus performs two basic functions; it cuts the groove in the master record, and it smooths or burnishes the resulting groove walls. While cutting the groove the stylus is driven by the cutter head in a 45/45 stereo mode to form the complex mechanical waveforms in the master record which are a precise analog of the electrical waveforms fed to the recording amplifier.
Micro-Point (formerly Transco Blanx Ltd) has been supplying cutting styli to the worlds mastering studios and pressing plants since the 80’s — That’s over 35 years and currently enjoys the number one status. Micro-Point is pleased to offer four types of cutting styli, two for Westrex and two for Neumann.
