hana means ‘brilliant and gorgeous’ in the Japanese language, the inspiration for Hana cartridges.

The Hana range of low and high output moving coil cartridges offer outstanding performance and value in their respective price ranges.

Hana cartridges are the result of over 50 years expertise from the master cartridge maker Masao Okada-san. The Hana cartridge ranges have been developed to offer supreme musicality at affordable price points, allowing you to spend more on your favourite vinyl records – surely the very reason for buying a good phono cartridge in the first place.
