The van den Hul Frog Gold MC Cartridge is a custom hand-built moving coil cartridge with the coil of a Grasshopper III and the front pole and suspension of the Grasshopper IV: the best cartridge available for its price! The Frog Gold has a 0.75 mV/channel output, matched crystal gold-wire coils and extra magnet modification.
"Overall the Frog Gold has recalibrated a number of my musical expectations. Itís easily my new favorite cartridge and Iím going to have to figure a way of getting one into my system permanently. Having lived with one thereís no going back. It would be too hard to give up its astonishing qualities. The musical insight alone is remarkable and worth the price of admission. If you are a music lover who has forgotten about the Van den Hul range as I had, do look afresh. The fact is Iím a bit unsettled by what I have been missing Ė and this isnít even the top of the range. Iíll be exploring more of these extraordinary Van den Huls in the near future but for now Iím not looking for anything beyond digging deeper into the delights of this amazing contraption." - Edward Barker, www.sixmoons.com
