"I want to know more about Japanese Taruya cartridges."
"I want to listen to analog records with a more powerful sound."

This page provides explanations for such people.

I am Tsuyoshi Abe, I have been working as a professional PA sound engineer for over 40 years. At the same time, I have been running a store specializing in DJ equipment in Tokyo since 1992.

Different types of DJs and record listeners come to my shop every day.

When I first opened my store, my customers such as DJs and listeners were buying products from the major cartridge manufacturers.

However, I was wondering if they were happy with the sound of the cartridges.

Because I was very dissatisfied with the products made by the major cartridge manufacturers.

I have been accumulating various experiences as a professional who handles sound in constant pursuit of good sound.

With that experience, I felt that commercially available cartridges made by the major manufacturers sounded boring.

I asked many professional DJs if they have any requests regarding cartridges.

They wanted cartridges that would maximize the potential of vinyls in clubs.

However, none of the major cartridge manufacturers were able to meet their needs.

I felt that many DJs were choosing the products of the major cartridge manufacturers by the process of elimination.

Many DJs wanted to play their records with powerful and dynamic sound.

I decided to use my experience as a PA engineer to develop a cartridge that would meet the needs of DJs.

My goal was to create a high-resolution cartridge for dance music that emphasizes the low frequency.

I especially focused on overwhelming sound pressure that you can never experience with other cartridges.

I made several prototype models and conducted hundreds of trial and error tests.

As a result of this, I made Taruya cartridges that could produce the ideal sound.

Taruya cartridges are a significant masterpiece created by craftsmen with excellent Japanese skills.

Japanese craftsmen carefully make each Taruya cartridge.

Taruya cartridges could be made only with the excellent technical skills of craftsmen.

When Taruya cartridges were first manufactured and sold, news about excellent sound quality spread around naturally through word of mouth in the local community.

International DJs who came to Japan were interested in using Taruya cartridges, which Japanese DJs had never seen before.

They were surprised by its powerful sound.

DJs from overseas who were using cartridges of other manufacturers played the same records as Japanese DJs who were using Taruya cartridges.

However, the sound of Taruya cartridges was much more powerful than the sound of other manufacturers' cartridges.

20 years have passed since Taruya cartridges were made.

Now, many DJs and record lovers around the world love to use Taruya cartridges.

Please listen to the sound of Taruya cartridges made by me and Japanese craftsmen.

Once you experience the sound of Taruya cartridges, you will never go back to the old cartridges.

I guarantee that you will be satisfied with the sound of Taruya cartridges.
