I have an old Seeburg library unit that uses the oddball magnetic cartridge with stylus on both sides. Cartridge part # is 246796. The stylus numbers are 246797 sapphire and 246788 diamond. I've found the sapphire for 100 dollars a pair for NOS on ebay, was hoping to find a cheaper alternative. Wanting to sell the unit but the cost of the stylus on top of a reasonable price for the unit makes it difficult!

Unfortunately there are no cheap solutions, Redhead needles are expensive and sometimes don’t work well.
I converted all my Seeburg to the more modern Pickering 340/345 cartridges, an expensive initial cost, buy new manufacture Styli are still inexpensive for now.

In the world of Seeburg two headed cartridges are not odd-ball, they are the norm.
This place is a good legitimate source of jukebox needles and cartridges.
