They say .....
Hana means “brilliant and gorgeous” in Japanese.
The Hana brand cartridges are hand made by the Excel Sound Corporation in Tokyo, Japan; who have been making cartridges and cartridge components on an OEM basis for over 40 years, specialising in Moving Coil type cartridges.
Hana is launching with four new MC cartridges, two with elliptical diamond styli and two with a nude natural diamond Shibata-stylus, and priced to be very competitive.
All four use high rigidity aluminium cantilevers and cross-shaped armatures, providing a ‘brilliant and gorgeous’ sound, with excellent tracking, tonality and stereo presentation.
