I’m Yves and today we try to keep the stylus in the groove it happened to everyone: a jumping needle the easiest and also
worst thing you could do to avoid a skipping record is to simply increase
the tonearm weight but that will drastically increase the wear of your
records so let’s take a look at possible reasons for a hoping needle I categorize
the issues in two parts equipment related and record related so a scratch
or even cracked record cause skips indeed not a problem for you Mint
collectors a wrapped or heat damaged record would also easily cause a jump dirty records or dusty stylus as well and then a badly set up cartridge causes
continues skipping even if mint records I will show you how to minimize every of
these reasons subscribe now and don’t miss a episode
