Hi everybody,
I'm glad to of found this site, as I have recently, (Christmas eve last year) aquired a Phillips radiogram in good condition.
I love the style and craftsmanship that went into the cabinet design, and it sits proudly in the front hallway.
The radio itself is working, but the detachable pick up head had been stolen from where I purchased it from, but the record changer spins so I'm hoping it works, but I need to find a replacement stylus head.
Any help on where to locate a replacement of Phillips dual-sapphire stylus head type AG3010, would be greatly appriciated.
Thanks Brian

There's a local mob called soundring.com.au but I've never been able to get their website to work so I don't know if they are still in business. White Pages lists them as:

104 Carrington St Narara NSW 2250
(02) 4328 1108, mobile 0408 880 801

Otherwise if you Google "AG3010 sytlus" you'll find quite a few overseas matches including a UK eBay seller.

Thanks for the info. I will have a look.
I just had a look at a U.K. seller, but it looks completely different...
Thanks Brian

Actually, re-reading your initial post it seems that you are wanting the entire pick-up head, not just the stylus, which may be quite difficult to find.

If that's the case we need to know the model of the turntable in order to determine the pick-up arm type.

Does the radiogram chassis itself have any model identification on it?

A clear, in-focus, photo or two of what is there at present would be helpful.

If you don't know how to host photos, you can email them to Brad whose addy is in his member profile, otherwise post the links to your photo hosting site (Photobucket, etc).
