I'm trying to find out how to purchase a replacement needle for my turntable. I don't think the needle has been replaced in over 20 years, and since I've unearthed the turntable, and it still works fine, I want to be able to get a new needle for it (from Needle Doctor, or somewhere comparable).

My question, which I haven't been able to find an answer for, is what type of replacement needle or cartridge do I need to purchase? I have a Panasonic SD-84 turntable. The needle/cartridge is attached with one screw at the top. When I unscrew the cartridge from the arm, I see four wires connecting the cartridge to the arm. A picture is below.



Please let me know if you need any more info. I'd probably be willing to spend about $40 or so, but I'd like to try and get some more life out of some old vinyl and this turntable, which it still works. Thank you.
