About material : African blackwood (Mpingo)
-. Mpingo : Swahili name of African Blackwood ( Swahili : East African local language)
Botanical name : Dalbergia melanoxylon

-. African blackwood listed by CITES as a protected wood since Jan. 2017.
(CITES : Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora)
But, all our raw materials of this wood species were imported in Korea legally from Tanzania on 2002~2004.
Please refer above photo of official 'Pre-Convention Certificate' issued by Korea government CITES authorities.
-. Mpingo is much different species from Ebony wood.
Ebony : Botanical name : Diospyros spp. (Ebenaseae), about 200 kinds of species.
Density(air-dry) : 0.9~1.0
Mpingo is renowned for its lots of defects like cracks, splits, knots, worm holes, etc. in the log itself,
and so result in very poor cutting yield ratio to certain size.
-. Acoustic properties :
Its stability and lovely tonal qualities make it well-knownd as "The Tree of Music" and it has often used
for woodwind musical instrument traditionally like clarinets.
Also, Mpingo is recognized already as outstanding resonant accessories to high-end audiophiles worldwide.

Product feature :
1. Wood vessel element direction which acts as a path of vibration runs with the vertical
height direction. Therefore, it comes to maximize vibration absorbing effect.
Regarding very dense African blackwood(Mpingo) species, it is very hard to secure
these big-diameter materials of cross-sectioned & well-dried.

stack 2-4 disces to achive each model weight.
3. It can not be reach the total weight 300~500g only with Mpingo layers which were
limited those diameter & height size, and so it should put the brass inside.

Buyer's review :
-. "Hi , I want to tell you how much I am enjoying my Mpingo LP Stabilizer Large.
The Mpingo LP Stabilizer Large used on my Garrard 301 is wonderful.
With a Denon 103R in a Mpingo body the sound is rich, detailed and dynamic.
Best regards , D.J USA, Mon.10 Dec. 2012"
-. "Dear K. S. Song
I would like to give a short feedback about my experience with your products.
I ordered a few weeks ago a record stabilizer large, disk block footers for under my loudspeakers,
a headshell damper and a set of cones.
When i received the Items, i was impressed, how beautiful they are made.
A shiny surface, and the items are all very beautiful crafted.
I did the implication in my Hifi-system one by one. I startet with the Disk Clamp.
It changed the sound of my turntable in a positive way.
I have a Nottingham Spacedeck with some improvements like graphite mat, carbone waffle base,
and a power supply.
The sound with the clamp improved clearly.
The base is a bit tighter and more organic and the whole presentation of the music is more natural.
The sound is also more focused. I had a certain fuzziness before which some would call airiness.
I like the more focused and centered sound, it feels more natural and live-like.
The musicians are standing now right in front of me. What a joy!
The footers under my loudspeakers weren't the same big improvement, because i had already wooden
footers instead of the standard metal footers, and my monitors, the wonderful Harbeth 30.1 are on stands
which will not give the same effect compared two floor standers.
But I had still a audible experience with it. The sound was more natural and organic than before.
I was impressed by the headshell damper.
I used the cartridge isolator from MusicMaker before, which i liked a lot. But your damper is better.
The transient speed is clearly better. It really improves the sound.
I have a darker background and a more natural feel to the music without any negative aspects.
I like all the tested products very much.
They are all integrated in my Hifi system since many weeks and they all will be staying there for sure.
Thanks for your good products. The music is now more authentic and joyful at my home.
I can highly recommend your products to everyone.
Sincerely, J.E.Z. from Switzerland, 2015.1.17."
