Feature and Specs


The conventional structure of the head shell was to fix the back side of the cartridge and the bottom side of the head shell, that is, the face and the face with two screws. In this case, if you tighten the screw strongly, the stress concentrates around the screw and the center part where the magnetic circuit which is the heart part of the cartridge exists is close to the state where it is floating.

Nelson Hold has a third screw that holds down the center of the cartridge from above. This greatly increases the purity of the sound.

By Nelson Hold is meant a diaphragm in English, but it exactly supports the cartridges and holds them tightly.
