The Edison groove is U-shaped, not V-shaped. A narrower V-shaped stylus will make it to the groove bottom where the audio is.
Does anyone make a U-shaped stylus?

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Best styli for Edison
I'm playing Edison Diamond disks with a Shure 3.5 FCR stylus in my Technics shell on my Technics SL-1200 MKII I was told that the 3.5 FCR stylus was the best for playing Edison Diamond disks, but I'm not really satisfied with the sound.
I've got the wiring correct for vertical grooves and the left and right channels are joined to make mono.
The disks are in very good condition.
Are there other stylus configurations that might work better?
