Lightest camellia head shell

Lightest camellia head shell

HS-7 is a wooden head shell made of rare domestic camellia wood, an excellent material.The specific gravity of Camellia japonica is 0.7, which is much lighter than ebony, and yet the wood grain is very fine and homogeneous.With its own weight of 8.1g (not including the screws), it is one of the lightest headshell of all headshells.

In general, the lighter the weight of the tone arm, including the cartridge and head shell, the more sensitive its operation will be.In the case of the HS-7, it is recommended to use the HS-7 as a light cartridge system to take advantage of its lightness.By lowering the mass of the head shell parts, you can enjoy a different and lighter sound from the same cartridge.
HS-7 is finished with a surface treatment with Clear's eco-friendly paint, giving it a natural, wood-grained look with a unique appeal.The fingerhook is made of gold plated brass.The wood itself does not produce any inherent resonant sound, so there is almost no fingerhook sound, which is a problem with metal shells.
