In the early days, ceramic Elements were used with rotatable needles. At one side a 78rpm one and on the other side a stereo needle. Later, as 78rpm records became rare, this one is exchanged with another stereo needle, so it became a double stereo stylus.
Popular types of these kind of needles are now standard supplied as double stereo types; on request we still can supply ones with stereo/78rpm needle combination. Less popular types are only supplied in 78/stereo versions.
