Hana SL MC Mono Cartridge Nude Diamond Shibata stylus: Low Output

by Hana

Mono records pre-dated stereo LPs and then existed side-by-side through most of the 1960s.

The Hana SL Mono represents the most musical and affordable means to enjoy both the classic records of that era as well as today’s mono re-issues. Embodying the highly acclaimed sound of the Hana SL, the SL Mono, with its particular generator and Shibata stylus, optimises playback of mono LPs.

Whether mounted to a second tone-arm, Universal headshell, or dedicated mono turntable, the SL Mono lets you get the most from Ellington, Basie, Hendrix, Beatles, the Stones, and all great mono recordings.
