Our most popular upgrade, this technical modification to the internal record/playback amp kicks the output up as much as another 9 db. With this enhancement, you'll be able to maximize the signal you're able to lay on the tape, virtually eliminating hiss and providing a superior sound that will blow your mind. You wont believe how great of a tape you will be able to make with this improvement.
We know many of you enjoy the sound of tube playback amplifiers. This head assembly has an erase, record and play head. The first mounting position is a second playback head that is wired directly to a pair of output jacks on the back of the machine. The Flux brand head is used only for the direct out feature. This is great option for those who like to use both tube and transistor amplification.
This option allows you to eliminate the switch that is on the front of the original headblock. You simply have a two- track or a four-track assembly with an erase, record and play head. Choose either format with this sound performance improvement option.
Today's machining standards are utilized, resulting in a quality that far exceeds the original Technics cast plates. Our plates allow you to configure your headblock in the "Three Head", "Four Head" or "No Switch" configuration. All of our custom configurations are available with either Aluminum or Brass Headblock plates. Assemblies are completed by the highly skilled John French of JRF.
MSRP $150 - $275
If your headblock has scratches, gouges or is generally in poor cosmetic condition such as worn lettering, you can freshen the look with a DIY J-Corder overlay. Want some more flash? Add some classy gold or silver plug accents too! Overlays are available in Brushed Aluminum, Gold and Black and plugs are offered in gold or silver. Other custom paint finishes are available by custom quote.
MSRP Overlays $95 / Plugs $80
