Covering high output voltage MC cartridge engine with SETOMONO ceramic-ware from Seto city in Japan, SETO-HORI suppresses excess vibration of cartridge engine itself.

Please look at this beautiful ceramic body. This unique pattern is not drawn directly with a brush, but by the mold. This technique is called HORI-TSUKE, and is one of the art of SETOMONO.

This pattern is designed in the motif of a fishing net, with a wish of netting happiness.

“Kata-Tori” (mold making) and “Yaki-ire” (burning) are key processes for ceramic-ware. After “Yaki-ire,” ceramic ware shrinks a lot, and this is why it had been said that ceramic ware is not suitable for cabinet of cartridge.

JICO created original design cooperating with a laboratory in Seto-city, Aichi prefecture, and studied the shrinkage together with a pottery in Toki-city, Gifu for over two years. Plus, JICO craftsmen finely adjust the product at the last process by hand work, and finally JICO has succeeded in launch of SETO-HORI.

“Micro-ridge diamond tip” has a polyhedral shape and maintain the product quality more than three times longer compared to ordinary styli.

Cantilever is made of Boron which has small mass and great stiffness. These characteristics allow the tip to trace the groove wall more correctly and reproduce low frequency with higher fidelity.

The base connected to shell is made of natural walnut tree and processed in the city near from the area where world-class musical instrument factories are. The combination of Japanese traditional ceramic and natural wood gives an additional charm to the sound. SETO-HORI is purely made-in-Japan + handmade MC cartridge.
