Cape Town, below the slopes of Table Mountain, is a beautiful place to live and work. This cosmopolitan city of many cultures, is home to A J Hanekom, a music lover and record collector for the past 30 years.

Besides the music, A J Hanekom has many other interests and gets his inspiration from his Garrard 301 turntables, vintage Leak and Quad audio equipment and his esoteric collection of high-end phono cartridges.

About 7 years ago, Hanekom decided to study the technical aspects and construction of phono cartridges with the objective of making a moving coil cartridge for himself. Little did he know about the challenges,
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.
