general info on shipping and the ethos at JrF
xmas 2013 update:
the JrF online store will be taking its xmas break from 13th December until 6th January. Orders received after 13th December will be processed as soon as possible after 6th January. Thanks !
please note - demand is high right now & so orders received after december 1st can't be 100% guaranteed to be delivered in time for xmas, especially for overseas destinations - in the UK i'll do what I can but do be aware that there are physical limits to the number of units I can prepare at a time and still maintain the quality levels i'm known for.
I try to keep stock of all units at all times, however there is a physical limit to the number of units I can prepare at a time and the processes involved take several days for each unit. JrF units are in high demand and its now a quite regular situation that stock is already sold before it is ready. Therefore, whilst I always process orders as quickly as possible it would be worthwhile remembering that JrF offers hand made units and there could indeed be a slight wait for your order. Over the last 12 months order processing time (not including times when i've been away on field trips etc) has ranged from 1 day to 14 days.
there are times when i'm away on field trips, leading workshops, recording (even for some of my own projects !) etc. Therefore, if you happen to order when i'm away from my usual routine, there will be a slight delay in sending your items.
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 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 !
