examples of sounds captured by JrF hydrophones, contact microphones & coil-pick ups
A: I spend quite a bit of time researching where the various components I use come from and its fair to say that this is often difficult. I use hand built elements not produced in China and all elements of them are sourced from Europe from manufacturers with high reputations for their standards of production and work conditions etc. The cable I use is produced to a specific design in Europe by a cable manufacturer that usually only supplies audio cable to the installation industry. In short, when buying JrF mics you can be sure that the parts have been sourced in Europe and are not the same as cheaper low quality products.

a sample of customer feedback comments:
'Currently listening to today's d-series hydrophone recordings and I feel like weeping/doing cartwheels. So pristine, the dynamic range, the frequency range, etc. Unbelievable'
'my team just got back from our humpback whales expedition, and the hydrophones you created just made everything easier and more amazing. Hearing the whale songs through the hydrophones itself was a very memorable experience'
'perfect in every way'
'i'm stunned by the quality of these mics'
'these are superb !' (c-cm contact mics)

Importantly, matching the impedance also improves the mid and low frequency response also. Standard jack to XLR adaptors won't do this and also will result in interference in the signal.
dual 3.5mm (female) to stereo 3.5mm jack (male)
ideal for connecting 2 mini-jack based microphones to a single mic in socket on hand held recorders.
