Most of the head shell has been made of metal to date. It is because it was difficult to obtain its accuracy and strength with wood etc.
In terms of strength and processing accuracy. Since we are good at precision processing technology of wood and plastics, we made it possible to process wooden head shell which matches analog player by making use of that technology. There are many benefits that can not be thrown away on wood. One is that sharp resonance hardly occurs because of its large internal loss.
Ease of resonance is also due to the fact that metals are not used much in speaker boxes. It is thought that the influence of the resonance of the entire arm is also great in the head shell. By using a wood head shell with a large internal loss there, it is thought that the influence of the resonance can be suppressed considerably.Because this product is lightweight, brass gold-plated screws were attached to the included setscrews. Because brass has a large specific gravity, you can increase the self weight by using long screws. For brass screws, gold plating is applied on the base without magnetic base, so you can use it with confidence. Because magnetic gold plating is applied also to the fingertip part of HS - 1A and HS - 1 As, it can be used with confidence in the MC cartridge which is greatly affected by magnetic force.
