There's an online shop called Garage A Records. They have a few crystal cartridges, including the BSR X5H (high output mono flipover) and the Ronette Stereo 105 (medium output stereo turnover), but they're mostly ceramic. I'd be interested in knowing of any other places that have them. Dud crystal cartridges can also be repaired if you can find a spare with similar crystal elements. I've just fixed a Ronette using an incomplete BSR SX6M.

I will add this supplier to the Services Directory at the weekend. I would have done it tonight but there is no category for overseas entities yet.

For now, the URL is http://www.garage-a-records.com/.

You could also try http://www.jvanschaikconsultancy.nl/ in Holland. They have originals and copies of Ronette, BSR, Dual, and National crystal cartridges.
