Default Cartridge for Collaro deck needed

Hi all.
I am currently restorng a 1955 Alba record player, but the Collaro RC456 doesn't have a cartridge fitted. I bought an alleged good used one, but it just sounds horrible.
I have had to replace them in the past when they get like this. So distorted and harsh its just torture to listen to.
So does anyone out here have a known good cartridge that will fit his deck please ?
The head of the tone arm is fairly small so the usual culprits don't fit.
I'd really like to keep this original, I don't want to fit a 'modern' flip over type if I can help it.
All costs met.

Many thanks in advance
Dr. Dave
