Van Den Hul The Frog MC Phono Cartridge

The van den Hul Frog Gold MC Cartridge is a custom hand-built moving coil cartridge with matched Gold-Wire coils and a Solid Boron Cantilever making it sound even smoother and more refined than the standard Frog - the best cartridge available for the price! The Frog Gold has a 0.65 mV/channel output, matched gold-wire coils and an extra internal support magnet.

It’s not easy being green. Throughout the auditioning, I was impressed by the amount of musical detail van den Hul’s Frog managed to extract from recordings I know well. Yet I never felt it was emphasizing detail over the gestalt. Without ever cloying, the Frog was unceasingly warm — music never lost its “human” touch. And the cartridge mated with a wide variety of tonearms and phono preamps. The Frog is no prima donna — it plays well with others.
