General Tetrad Needle Info: Many varieties of Tetrad cartridges were made; with more than 750 needle numbers! All 750+ varieties of Tetrad needles can be used on any Tetrad cartridge in spite of minor differences. In the mid-1970's Tetrad was bought by Birmingham Sound Reproducers "BSR" and the needle numbers were reduced to three flipover and one singletip stock number. All FOUR variations listed below fit all Tetrad Cartridges.
Figure 854 below illustrates various lengths of the FLIPOVER HANDLE such as "L," "M," "O," and "S." Other variations include Plastic Handles with a rubber flex coupling with a metal tube (like the three illustrations below) or All Plastic needles with a Plastic Spring & Plastic Tube!

Heat Precaution: Ceramic and Crystal phonograph cartridges can be damaged by temperatures over 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Do not solder wires to T-Plug connector while on a Tetrad cartridge. Hold pins of T-Plug with small needle-nose priers or other heat-sink while soldering wires to the pins to prevent damaging the T-Plug. T-Plugs available as optional extra for other Tetrad cartridges which do not include a T-Plug in the package.

Tetrad Phono Cartridges
BSR Record Changers found in Channel Master, Emerson, Monarch, Olympic, Philco, Symphonic, and Zenith record players usually use Tetrad Phono Cartridges.
The Tetrad TC8H was the most popular cartridge ever (about 10 million made). Many used on BSR changers; equivalents include: Arista 40-1675, Astatic 1312d, 1314d, 1315d, 1316d, 1317d, EVG 120, Pfanstiehl P-440D.
The Pfanstiehl P-409D UNIVERSAL adhesive stick-on REPLACEMENT replaces TC8H & most other Tetrad cartridges.
Tetrad cartridges were mounted one of four ways: EVG-A Standard.1/2 inch mount; EVG-SN Snap-In; or BSR-UIB Universal Inline Bracket. Glued-in (in a dozen custom shrouds) (Kens Electronics has some NOS inventory). The Pfanstiehl P-409D adhesive mount cartridge can be installed into ANY old BSR/Tetrad shroud.
Tetrad originally had several socket colors; after the mid-1970's Birmingham Sound Reproducers "BSR" buyout this was reduced to three: BLUE (highest output voltage: replaces black; green; pink); GRAY (middle output voltage: replaces orange); RED (lower output voltage: replaces yellow).

The pictures below should help you identify mount hardware that you may need for Tetrad cartridges:
