Hana SH Cartridge

The 2 mV output Hana SH is the higher output cartridge from the Hana S Series.

Hana SL and SH moving coil cartridges are upgrades over the EL/EH series with upgraded tolerances and nude Shibata styluses on aluminum cantilevers.  They are excellent cartridges but like their bigger brother ML/MH series, care must be taken with matching tonearms and tonearm height adjustability due to the narrow profile stylus.  Shibata styluses in general require a fairly high level of skill and good turntable tools and magnification to install correctly, so if you are in Portland, we would definitely recommend you have us install it.  See also Hana ML/MH descriptions.  

The SL/SH cartridges are fairly light weighing in at 5g so if you have an older low-mass tonearm with high quality bearings these are an excellent choice at their price points. The sonic profile is on the polite and sweet side but with notable speed and a high level detail - reminiscent of Hibiki and other high end Japanese cartridges. 

The SH version cedes a little of the speed present in the SL version but is still what I would call a speedy cartridge. It's lithe and tracks with unusual speed and dexterity for a high output MC output cartridge.
