Asada cherry wood is a fairly stiff species, native to Hokkaido, with a specific gravity 0.75. Asada cherry was chosen for the best sound for Yamamoto speaker enclosures, and is used by others like flooring and headphones, with a good reputation for durability, stability and excellent tone. The HS-2 uses carefully selected heartwood, from the best quality Asada cherry tree. Because of the density, and the use of heartwood, it was decided to use a gold-plated brass plate with integrated finger combination, to provide a firm stop for the screws. Since the specific gravity of cherry is lighter than metal or ebony, the brass plate increases the weight to be similar to all-metal headshells.

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.
