Van Den Hul The Crimson
Brand Van Den Hul
Just when you think "It doesn't get any better"...
The CRIMSON is a top performance custom handbuilt moving coil phono cartridge. A crossbreed of our The CANARY and The CONDOR. THis cartridge is availabale in natural light and darkwood colour as well as in a red coloured (also wooden) version. On special request a Polycarbonate body is available.
Specific characteristics for this great cartridge are a relatively high (0,65mV) output, gold coils, a Samarium-Cobalt magnet, extended channel seperation and superb tracking abillity.
As the popularity of vinyl is reviving again, many requests came in to develop a High-End phono cartridge for a more affordable price than The COLIBRI. The CRIMSON is the result and probably one of the cartridges with the best value for money available. It is completely hand build by the Master himself and comes with a 200 hour service check-up, free of charge (for the original owner).
Special Edition CRIMSON XGA now available with Titanium & Amber Body & Gold Coils.
