Noriyuki Miyajima has been producing extraordinary artisanal cartridges for decades. His designs, which feature an ingenious cross-coil moving coil generator and damping system, produce a full-bodied, supremely musical sound that recalls vintage audio systems, but with the high resolution and articulate frequency extremes of the finest modern cartridges. All Miyajima cartridges are low-compliance, and therefore suitable for high- and medium-mass tonearms, like the Thomas Schick and some of Frank Schröder’s designs.

The Miyajima Saboten L features a cactus needle stylus with an aluminium tip at the stylus end, with a nude line contact stylus. A masterpiece of Noriyuki Miyajima’s art.

Press Reviews

“In a nutshell, this beautiful-sounding product embodies everything that’s special about this brand. When it comes to the performance characteristics that matter most to me, I don’t believe I’ve heard another standard-mount cartridge as effective as Miyajima Laboratory’s Saboten L.”
