Reputation built on Trust, Quality, and Experience
Who are these guys? And...

Fair question.

After all, equipment performance is a key ingredient in the success of your recording facility.

So, we'd like to tell you who we are, what we do, and how we do it.

Quality and Integrity since 1979
Responsive, personalized customer service is at the heart of everything we do here at our Greendell, New Jersey facility. That commitment has brought a measure of success, and we've grown steadily since we started in 1979.

But we're still a relatively small, customer-oriented company. When you call us, you won't be shuffled through a voice-mail maze. And, you won't bang heads (pardon the pun) with the suit-and-tie mentalities. Most of us have worked in studio recording, tape duplication, mastering, or broadcasting at some point in our careers. We know the pressures and deadlines you face every day.

If your analog heads aren't performing up to full potential, you can't do your best job. It's our job to get your equipment back in prime condition. We're dedicated to doing it better than anybody else.

The Industry's first choice
At JRF Magnetic Sciences, our commitment is to offer the absolute finest in premium magnetic heads, head reconditioning services, and related products and services.
We've stuck to this core philosophy since we started back in 1979. Since then, we have built a reputation for customer satisfaction that is second-to-none in the industry. Our list of loyal customers includes the nation's premier recording studios, broadcast facilities, mastering houses, service companies, OEM's, and tape duplicators. We're proud of the fact that many of our customers refuse to send their head assemblies anyplace else. They know that there is no other place where they can count on the same level of technical expertise, friendly service, and consistently reliable results. If in doubt, talk to other audio professionals. Chances are, you already know somebody who relies on our services. In fact, personal referrals have long been our main source of new customers.

Maximum performance at minimum cost
Our first objective is to restore your recording equipment to the highest possible level of performance for the longest possible service life. And, do it at the lowest possible cost.

For analog heads, that means that our primary emphasis is on reconditioning. Our lab uses the latest in state-of-the-art equipment for relapping and polishing, and our staff has a combined total of over 50 years experience in this precision art. All refurbished heads are guaranteed to look like new, and to meet or exceed original performance specifications. All head assembly alignments are performed on optical equipment with digital measurements to tolerances of less that 0.0005 inch. So, when your head assembly comes back and you mount it on your recorder, you can be confident that everything will be right on the money and ready to go.

At JRF, it's your choice...
However, if your heads cannot be refurbished, JRF Magnetic Sciences gives you more choices in replacement heads, all at highly competitive prices. We are a stocking distributor of factory replacement heads from the original equipment manufacturers, as well as direct replacements from a select group of independent head manufacturers. In addition, you can choose from JRF's own PLX line of premium quality heads.

No other company gives you so many options under one roof. That's because, over the years, JRF has established a unique relationship of trust and mutual respect with recorder manufacturers and independent service companies around the world. They know they can rely on JRF's expertise to assure optimum performance from their products. In fact, some of our best customers are the factory-owned service centers for analog recorder manufacturers!
