Franz,

Your cartridge was made by General Electric in the USA during the mid-1950s. It was used around the world and was provided with three stylus sizes: 3.0 mil, for 78rpm records; 2.5 mil, for professional radio programs, and 1.0 mil for LPs. Later, the mono needle was replaced by the standard stereo size: .7 mil. I do not recommend that this cartridge be used to play stereo records.

The small 4-page leaflet that was provided with the cartridges is posted on the internet, and probably at Vinyl Engine. It's in English. The VR-II is an improved version of the earlier RPX, of which there were two models and various methods of holding the needles. The RPX comes from the very beginning of long playing records. There was also a short article written by a GE engineer about the cartridge soon after it was introduced. A frequency response report was written during the last 10 years by the American engineer, Eddit Ciletti. Unfortunately, I think that Ciletti did his test with a bad stylus, so his result was not valid. I don't know of any other literature about these cartridges.

These are fascinating cartridges because they can give you the authentic sound of the period. These cartridges were used professionally, too, so we can consider them to be reference cartridges. It is possible to find needles for them, but most of them are not made properly. I intend to provide a re-manufacturing service for the needles, to both make them decent as well as to, hopefully, give the cartridge more "audiophile" performance. So far, I have slightly-modified one stylus for someone else, and he seems to be happy with it.

I have been writing a Handbook: a guide to Stanton/Pickering cartridges and styli that they made during their most comprehensive period: 1979 through 1990. I'm almost finished; it has 38 pages. If this sells well enough, I intend to write another guide: this one will be about the GE mono cartridges. The GE book will be much smaller and less expensive. The reason that the GE book will be small is simple: GE made only 2.5 mono cartridge bodies and 3 needle sizes, with a few variations in how the needles were mounted. Stanton made a few dozen styli and 7 bodies.

To the best of my knowledge, nobody has ever written material like this. I'm writing what I feel users want to know. Cartridges and needles have been mysterious and very difficult for users to understand. Hopefully, I will be able to help people understand the products in these brands, help people gain satisfaction with them, and savc people much money that's often wasted when trying one cartridge or stylus afer another in the attempt to obtain satisfactory listening.

Unfortunately, I only know English, so this is the language that I'm writing in.

I hope that you enjoy your GE cartridge!

Franz,

Unfortunately, I do not have a good translation of your last message, so I cannot answer you. We need someone else to help now.

"Thanks, Richard. Could I use a 12" with this cartridge?"

Hi, Piero.

Yes. Of course. The length of the tone arm has no realtionship to a cartridge.
But if the cartridge is properly aligned, the longer the arm is, the lower the distortion will be across the record surface.
