華 Hana, means “brilliant and gorgeous” in the original Japanese. Hana cartridges are produced by Excel Sound Corp from Japan, a long established cartridge making company who produce for many other companies. In picking the best bits for their own cartridges, Hana Phono Cartridges use high rigidity aluminium cantilevers, and cross-shaped armatures with the aim of providing brilliant and gorgeous sound.  The Hana “SL” uses a nude natural diamond Shibata-stylus, capable of excellent high frequency response, giving transparency and excellent trackability.  Hana cartridges are available as ‘low’ and ‘high’ output versions. The latter “SH” being suitable for quieter Moving Magnet inputs but we hold limited stock so ask before ordering (The price is the same).

In the same way the S Mono is available but of limited stock, so check before ordering (same price).
