The COLIBRI STRADIVARIUS:
A Reference custom hand built phono cartridge, matched crystal gold coils and 0.38 mV/channel output.
a result of phono cartridge builder A.J. van den Hul’s continuous
research into improving his phono cartridge designs The COLIBRI has seen
the light of day.
COLIBRI STRADIVARIUS is the improved successor to our GRASSHOPPER
“BEAUTY” series of phono cartridges where many building components have
been removed in a highly successful quest to return to the plain essence
of phono transduction.

design, in all its aspects bearing much resemblance to the “Colibri”
named tropical bird’s swiftness, elegance and beauty; Hence the
Compared to our GRASSHOPPER “BEAUTY” series the following differences stand out:
minimizing and adapting the cartridge’s total magnetic circuit the
related distortion and (Barkhausen) noise have undergone a considerable
decrease. This opens up many subtle sound details that never have been

XG Version: (X = cross shaped modulator, G = matched crystal Gold wire coils)
• Output voltage: 0.38 mV/channel
• Stradivarius has Koa Wood body with Stradivarius Formula Laquer Coating.
Special customer demands/specifications:

personalized cartridges the wooden container can mention the name of the
customer it has been specially built for. This option is exclusively
available for The CANARY, The GRASSHOPPER III series, The GRASSHOPPER
IV, The GRASSHOPPER “BEAUTY”, The CONDOR and The COLIBRI versions.

of records to be played, the type of music generally played (jazz being
more dynamic and classical more spacious and detailed) and other
