Introducing a range of Moving Coil Cartridges from Japan - Hana - (hana means "brilliant and gorgeous" in Japanese). The Hana low and high ouput moving coil cartridges have been winning reviewer praise and awards since their introduction to the UK.
Hana MC Phone Cartridges use high rigidity aluminium cantilevers, and cross-shaped armatures, providing a 'brilliant and gorgeous' sound at competitive price ranges for Moving Coil (MC) Cartridges of this quality.
Manufactured by Excel Sound Corporation, a 50 year old company based in Tokyo, who started off manufacturning low cost cartridges, such as the highly regarded Excel ES70 and by 1978 was producing MC cartridges, with particular expertise in high output MC cartridges and specialising in OEM cartridge manufacture. They are perhaps seen as one of those slightly underground Japanese companies - who certainly will not reveal which cartridge brands they have manufactured for over the years. They launched the Hana brand in 2015.
