HS-1A is the latest version of the HS-1 African Blackwood headshell. This version has longer slots for the headshell, since there are more cartridges on the market with nonstandard mounting distances (measured from the stylus tip to the centerline of the mounting holes).

African Blackwood, also known as grenadilla or mpingo, is a beautiful sounding wood, and is used to produce the oboe and clarinet. Specific gravity is about 1.4, and its strength is among the highest of any wood. Because of the good strength and dimensional stability, the reasons for its adoption in woodwind production, Blackwood is an ideal headshell material. There is no problem in strength, and Blackwood can directly accept most headshell hardware without fear of damaging the wood, although nylon washers are recommended to prevent scratching.

The HS-1A comes with gold-plated brass hardware. You can increase the total mass by using the longer screws, to fine tune resonance frequency of the headshell and cartridge. These fasteners are non-magnetic.
