UPDATE & Further update (30th March)
on march 11th I was involved in a car accident. Someone crashed, at speed, into the back of my car, writing it off. Although we walked away from the crash without major injuries I do have some whiplash aches and pains + sustained an injury to my hand. This plus now having to spend time sorting out all the paperwork and look for another vehicle means that i'm going to be running behind on orders for awhile. Holding a soldering iron for more than a few minutes for example is a bit tricky for now. 

further update:

over the last week or so I have begun to have some other symptoms, probably some sort of delayed shock. So, i'm having to take things a bit steadier until this eases.

In the meantime i'm slowly working to complete orders already placed & will do what I can to get them out to you soon. I can't say how long this will be right now as some days are better than others but please be assured that I will send your order as soon as I can. I would say that perhaps its best to assume that your order might take between 14-20 days to prepare & send.

I have a spotless reputation for the service I offer & so I hope in this instance you will accept my apologies for any delays.

thanks,

Jez


IMPORTANT

1) please insure you select the correct postage option from the drop down menu on each item

2) if paying by paypal please monitor the email address associated with it in case there is a need to contact you about your order. 

3) when ordering standard series units please remember to let me know which type of jack (3.5mm or 1/4 inch) you would like on them.

4) I can't be held responsible for delays in sending orders where the incorrect payment has been made or emails about the unclear aspects of the order have not been replied to.

5) please supply the correct postal address when placing orders ! every now and then I get an order paid for by paypal where an old address has been left on that account. Please understand that I cannot be held responsible if an order is shipped to a provided address that you no longer have access to.

6) postage charges here in the UK are calculated by weight and size of parcel - so the postage charges per item are correct and reflect the actual cost of postage, insurance, packaging etc.

general info on shipping and the ethos at JrF


I know sometimes we all want products to arrive almost the same day as we order them but JrF mics are hand made and demand is usually high due to their strong reputation. Current average time to dispatch from ordering is around 14 days.

I always send an email following your order being placed, letting you know i've received it and to clarify any details if needed - so please check junk mail filters or the email account you use for any paypal payment. 


JrF is not a big faceless business in some factory on an industrial estate and I have no wish for it to become so. I work hard to get orders dispatched quickly but life is about more than making money and so there might be times, if i'm away giving workshops or working on various projects, when the fact that JrF isn't ikea-ish will mean waiting a bit longer for your mics. If this is a problem then perhaps send me an email before ordering and I can advise on possible dispatch times.

unless i'm 'off grid' internet wise you will get an email letting you know but I would ask for your understanding with any delays. 

JrF products are made by someone who actually uses these things and has a very active involvement with creative field recording / sound / music and I strongly believe thats one of the reasons they are as good as they are, so I do need to keep my hand in so to speak !

thanks....

1/4 inch to xlr adaptors



1/4 inch (female) to XLR (male)
impedance transforming adaptor


ideal for connecting JrF c-series and standard contact mics and hydrophones to XLR input recorders such as those made by Sound Devices, Fostex, Nagra, Tascam, Edirol, etc etc.

I've used lots of different adaptors over the years and these are the ones that work best. Well built and they work better than transforming adaptors costing a great deal more.

pleased to say that some of my c-series contact mics, d-series hydrophones and coil pick ups have been used for the sound design of these recent films (as well as many more):

'The Imitation Game'
