Kiseki PurpleHeart N.S. Short Body

Contact Us for Pricing and Availability


We proudly present to you our new Kiseki PurpleHeart N.S. ( SB ) MC Phono Cartridge. SB stands for Short Body.

Like the PurpleHeart N.S. ( Long Body ), our short body Kiseki PurpleHeart N.S. has been machined out of solid Purpleheart wood, but has now the smaller size ( short body ), like the Kiseki Blue N.S.

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

We have chosen for a Short Body to make it easier to install this cartridge in different tonearms.

Our new Kiseki MC Phono Cartridge is available through official dealers of our Kiseki distributors.



a hand-built beauty
that evokes adjectives normally

“mystique” and “masterpiece”
