S.A.S. (Super Analogue Stylus) and Shure type 5 (VN5MR and VN5xMR “Micro Ridge”)

Every JICO stylus is hand-made to order by a skilled crafts-person one at a time. Therefore we are not able to produce many styli per day. In particular, it takes longer to make the S.A.S. and Micro Ridge type styli. Currently we receive many orders beyond our production capacity, which can delay the shipping process. It takes about one to one and a half months to produce the S.A.S. styli before they can be shipped. When we receive your order, we will inform you of the shipping date as soon as it is decided. We apologize for the inconvenience and would appreciate your understanding.
