Kiseki Blue N.O.S.

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Kiseki Blue the first “re-born” Kiseki cartridge in 2010-2011. The body (from the 80’s) is machined out of solid aluminium, the motor is built from parts from the past and today. Perfect combination of best choices from then and from now result in new Kiseki Blue which with a lot of ease surpasses the results of the very original Kiseki Blue from the 80’s.

If still available, try to listen to one and try to get one. If all are gone, still try to experience our 2010-2011 results. In the next page you can see where these collectables are, where you have to travel for a maybe opportunity to listen to the first “re-born” of our Kiseki range.
