Hi All,

I have never been on a forum before and I know NOTHING about electronics so please be patient with me ;). I recently bought a Grundig Majestic 7080 W console at auction. It is in remarkable condition, everything seems to work, but it is missing the “end” of the phono arm and I’m not sure exactly what I need or where to buy. I’m just going to throw out the pics and see if anyone can help. I feel bad because I only have a need here, nothing to offer back.

Argh: I’m already a failure. It will upload the photo of the console (screenshot from auction) but not the up close pic of arm.

It worked. I made the pic smaller.

What you are looking for is called the “headshell”.

I suspect that your turntable should be labeled Perpetuum Ebner somewhere on it, Model 7000 I believe. Someone will correct me if I am wrong. I would check the major auction sites. There are several currently available, expect to pay a pretty penny though.

As an aside, you will also need a cartridge and a stylus if they are not included with the headshell.

Thank you!! We couldnt find anything on the phonograph, just on the back of the radio. I’ve bought a stylus but don’t know what kind of cartridge to buy. Everything I’ve seen is listed by part number and the sellers that I’ve contacted have said they don’t know if what they’re selling will work. Thanks again!

Looks like it uses a Philips integrated cartridge/headshell.

Any idea where I can get one? I’ve looked on eBay and googled. No one can tell me if what they have will work. This is all so over my head. But if anybody is looking for bizarre taxidermy or other oddities, I’m your girl! I hate being in a group with nothing to offer :(

Could you post more detailed photos of of your turntable with any identifying markings?

As an example, this is out of my Grundig 8050:

Thank you so much Andrew. I should have pics tomorrow evening. There’s nothing on the top like you have, but a friend is going to help my mom take the top off tomorrow after work. She took it back to Texas today.

I second what orthophonic stayed. A search for Philips AG 1003 should get you in the ballpark. I would expect any cartridge to be long dead by now a refit to a more modern cart will more than likely be required.
