B&O Pickup stylus comparison

Below are four photos taken with the same magnification.

The top two photos are a Bang & Olufsen SP2 pickup, compatible with the 25º tonearm on a Type 42 “Stereopladespiller”.

The bottom two are a rather dirty Bang & Olufsen MMC 1/2 pickup, compatible with a range of turntables including the Beogram 4500, for example.

The yellow grid lines have a 0.50 mm spacing.
