||About 7 years ago, Hanekom
decided to study the technical aspects and construction
cartridges with the objective of making a moving
coil cartridge for himself. Little did he know about
skills needed and costs involved.
So, after years of study, experimentation and teaching
himself to use machine tools and electronic measuring
devices, A J Hanekom brings
you his Blue Angel Mantis Moving Coil phono cartridge.
A superior mix of new technology, diamond, titanium,
aircraft grade aluminium, high-tech polymer, stainless
steel, pure iron, copper and rare earth neodymium.
|Hanekom set himself the toughest
of standards. The Blue Angel Mantis
cartridge transduces nothing but the music in the record
grooves. Every part is precision-made and assembled in Hanekom’s
workshops. Every completed and individually numbered cartridge
is exhaustively measured, adjusted and played on a wide programme
of professional test discs and
different genres of music for optimum
performance and enjoyment by his customers.
The Blue Angel Mantis MC phono cartridge
– a true, handmade, high-end musical instrument. Born
from the mind of a music lover.
