Kiseki proudly presents to you their new PurpleHeart N.S. S.B. (Short Body) Moving Coil Phono Cartridge.

Like the PurpleHeart N.S. (Long Body), the short-bodied PurpleHeart N.S. S.B. has been machined out of solid Purple Heartwood, but now has a smaller size, like the Kiseki Blue N.S. This design was chosen to allow this cartridge to be installed on a greater variety of tonearms.

The motor is based on the same parts Kiseki use for the other current Kiseki N.S. models.
