A new line from Japan, Hana (which means “brilliant and gorgeous” in the original Japanese). Hana Phono Cartridges use high rigidity aluminum cantilevers, and cross-shaped armatures, providing you with brilliant and gorgeous sound.

Hana cartridges are exclusivly produced by Excel Sound Corporation of Tokyo Japan, a long time OEM cartridge producer. The Hana Series has been developed with a great deal of attention focussed on ease of use and set-up, as well as high performance reproduction.

Excel Sound Corporation pride themselves on their manufacturing quality and quality controls at every stage, ensuring their handmade cartridges offer consistently perfect results. Their expertise in design and manufacturing has produced in the Hana range, some of the finest sounding and value for money cartridges on the market today in their price ranges.

The Hana MC cartridges come with two different styli designs. The first is the high performance Hana S range “SH” and “SL” cartridges that use a nude natural diamond Shibata-stylus, capable of excellent high frequency response, giving supreme transparency and excellent trackability. This model comes in two output options offering either High output 2.0mv/1KHz (SH) or Low output 0.5mv/1KHz (SL).

Secondly the lower cost E range "EH" and "EL" cartridges (same two High and Low output options as the "S" range) come with a synthetic Elliptical diamond styli, but nonetheless offer a highly competitive quality sound, referenced against similar priced cartridges.
