This stereo cartridge uses a cantilever made of bamboo (Madake).
The material normally used to make a cantilever has some small inherent resonances and is often made from metal and/or a stone of hard material. Unusually in this cartridge Bamboo is used which removes a lot of the extra resonance from the cantilever. A very effective result is thus achieved.
