Technics SL-1500 Needle ?

I brought my father in laws Technic SL-1500 out of 25 year storage.  The record sound terrible.  Not being terribly familiar with this direct drive system - what do I need here?  New needle and cartridge?  Not sure what I should order to fix this.  Thanks.

I have it plugged into an Art Pro DJPRE II Phono Turntable Preamplifier which in turn is connected to my Cary system via analog cables. The Cary is set to analog bypass for that input. Thanks.
