In-between the Lenco Heaven Belgium meet and my trip to the German audio mafia. I did a stop by Uwe‘s place. And guess what… I had some surprises.

Bubinga Uwe  headshell

First one is that a new wood for headshells is available : the Bubinga…

Here are the first photos:

This new headshell has very close weight to the ebony headshell and from my first impression is a bit less “warm” sounding than the ebony one. It also looks absolutely stunning.

Of course these are available right now and… for the same price as the ebony Uwe headshell (retail price is 110€ including Paypal fees and worldwide shipping). The other Uwe headshells and Uwe and Midas Denon cartridge bodies (ebony, snakewood and panzerholz) are still available, and we still have a few Malachite stone-bodies still available. Get them until they last !

Uwe is also working on a new body for the famous mono cartridge Denon DL-102. Here is a picture of the latest prototype. Do not hesitate to give us feedback about the look of it. Sound improvement is really impressive and I do really like the look of this body.

Retail prices with worldwide shipping and Paypal fees included for Uwe headshells or wood bodies are still:
  • Ebony or bubinga : 110€
  • Panzerholz or Snakewood : 135€
As you can see… it is a work in progress and there will be more stunning news soon!
