Astatic N50/51 originally used in a few later American Wurlitzers until the 1050
As the original cartridge may have been replaced over the years it is worth while comparing the picture with whatever you have fitted.
NOTE colour may vary

Currently the Cobra is out of production. No other pick up is compatible.
The only alternative is to convert the cobra system to a normal ceramic system.
To do this the arm has to be converted(modified) to be able to take the correct cartridge , the lead to the amp changed, and the input circuitry of the amplifier modified to accept the change.
All this means a conversion in the workshop with some costs involved.
Until the cobras are made again it is the only way forward but unfortunately the tone arm will not be able to accept a cobra again, so once converted the jukebox will have to stay like that.
Replacement needle for Shure M75 c Cartridge. Often fitted in Ami and Rowe Ami, Wurlitzer including early OMT vinyl and some Rock Ola
A common error is to fit Type 75 needle when it should be a type 44 etc
The Shure M44c was used very succesfully by Ami, Rock Ola and Wurlitzer in a variety of models and when the cartridge was avaialble it was the pick up of choice to replace the older magnetic pick ups that had been fitted originally. Sadly the cartridges are no longer available but the needles are.
Often used as a substitute to the original pu in Ami models G H, I, J, K, Continental - a very versatile pick up. Many models of Rock Ola use them as do some Wurlitzers but do not confuse the 44 with the 75 type - they look similar but are not the same.
Originally fitted in Rock-Ola models 436, 437, 440, 442, 444, 446, 447, 448/449, 450/451, 452, 453/454, 456, 459/460, 461, 463/464, 467, 468, 469/470, 471, 473/474, 476, 477, 478, 480, 481, 484, 488, 490, 494, 496,
