Van den Hul MC-10 Special Boron MC Cartridge Van den Hul MC-10 Special Boron MC Cartridge is the newer, more refined and better sounding moving coil cartridge compared to its predecessor. Being hand built it really is a true piece of kit that has been carefully monitored throughout production at Van den Hul’s factory. A ticker front pole and an extra small magnet have dramatically improved sound in comparison to the previous version. This is why the adjective ‘Special’ has been included in the name, allowing instant recognition between new and old cartridges to be established. Van den Hul-type 1 tip, boron cantilever, matched crystal silver-wire coils and 0.65mV/channel
