Hana

Award winning mid-price range of MC Cartridges from a Japanese specialist manufacturer.

Introducing a range of Moving Coil Cartridges from Japan - Hana - 華 (hana means “brilliant and gorgeous” in Japanese). The Hana low and high output moving coil cartridges have been winning reviewer praise and awards since their introduction to the UK.

Hana MC Phono Cartridges use high rigidity aluminum 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 manufacturing 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 specializing 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.

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

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.
