Fills the sound field with a mellow resonance

Your cartridge begins to play a sound world of another dimension.

Vintage wire and solder are carefully selected. The cartridge is manufactured through the aforementioned polishing process.
The most surprising thing about this product is its sound world, where the sound suddenly overflows from the complete silence.
The sound quality is deep and full of a dense shimmer.
It is a must for classical music fans who were not satisfied with the Ginjo reed, and for fans of female vocals, it captures and reproduces the shadows and luster of fragile voices.
This is a sound world that surpasses the advanced model of the Ginjo reed, and we urge you to give it a try.
Due to the tremendous amount of work involved, we can only produce three sets of Daiginjo Reeds in a day, even if we try our best.
Wire material 1910s-1930s Vintage wire awg26 (diameter approx. 0.4mm) single wire, insulator, wound with silk yarn
Solder material KS-Remasta selection 1940s-50s Vintage solder R rich
Chip Japanese gold plated phosphor bronze
*Color of coating is subject to change without notice.
Can we create an environment where a wide range of record fans can listen to records comfortably and enjoyably without spending a lot of money?

Analog Relax focused on "lead wires," which have the power to greatly improve sound quality, and developed "Ginjo Reed" as a product that meets the demands of record fans.

Why is it important to polish the wire material?

Most wire materials are coated with some kind of "film" on the surface for insulation and oxidation prevention.
Vintage wires, in particular, are usually well coated with "enamel".
Therefore, when making shell lead wires, it is important to "polish off" the coating from the wire where the terminals (tips) are soldered together. Of course, sound can be produced anyway without removing the coating layer. But as you can see, there is a difference in the sound.

What is the difference between Daiginjo-lead polishing?

Daiginjo reeds, like Ginjo reeds, are made by Mr. Karasawa of KS-Remasta, a shell reed craftsman. To polish the wire, a sharp blade is used, but in the process of making "Ginjo Reed", we discovered that as the blade became dull, the "freshness" of the sound produced diminished. We hypothesized that this might be due to the need for thorough "sharpening" on the blade side, in addition to the wire polishing technique. With this hypothesis, Mr. Karasawa's search for "sharpening" management of knives began. By spending an enormous amount of time to sharpen the blades, the "freshness" and "purity" of the sound produced improved rapidly.
In the end, he made full use of a total of "8-step sharpening": 1 rough sharpening, 3 medium sharpenings, 2 finishing sharpenings, 1 super-finishing sharpening, and 1 mirror-finishing sharpening.
Daiginjo lead" was created by controlling the solder alloy layer ideally through mirror finishing using a polishing technique that is not available outside the company, which is concerned with "blade sharpening" to this extent and pushes the wire surface to the limit.
Naturally, it takes a long time to produce, so only a few sets of "Daiginjo Reed" can be produced per day.
I replaced the "Jazz Standard" leads with "Daiginjo Leads" on my Shure V15 type II.
The thickness of the mid-range remained the same, but the high frequencies and low frequency extension were unlike anything I had ever heard before.
The amount of information has increased considerably.
During one live performance, the number of applauses increased and I could hear the MC's speech clearly, which I could not hear before.
Vocal expression is very good. The coloring and shading of the voice is much clearer.
Although the Shure V15typeII is quite old, I don't feel any old-fashioned sound at all. I used GRAD, Sure M44G Kai, and V15typeII in various ways depending on the genre, but not only Jazz from 1950's to 60's, but also J-POP, songs from 80's, rock, and classical music are reproduced without any discomfort at all.

The sound changed when I tried this. A mellow resonance filled the deep sound field, and wind instruments were dense and extended. The wind instruments were dense and extended, and a deep emotional tone spilled out of them.
