Urushi Vermillion

Koetsu

The Urushi cartridges feature rosewood bodies but are painstakingly coated with multiple layers of an Urushi lacquer. The Urushi cartridges are probably the most striking in the whole Koetsu lineup because they encompass the traditional art of Japanese lacquerware in the production of the cartridge body. Even without reproducing music, the Urushi is itself, a work of art.

The Urushis come in 3 cosmetic finishes Gold (Wajima), Black (Tsugaru) and Vermillion. 

The Vermillion is finished in a less striking reddish lacquer color.  The Vermillion is the only very low output cartridge in the Urushi range.
