Yes, Flux Magnetics is still very much alive. Why do you ask?

Thanks Paul. There was some questions raised on the Tapeheads forum. I think they were looking for a source of track heads. I realized, after posting my question, that Flux Magnetics was making track heads.

Greg has made 1/4 track heads for me. I'd suggest giving him a call or shooting him an email.

Could it be that they were thinking about Nortronics heads?
Joe Dundovic (the original founder of Nortronics) passed away almost a month ago.

JFR is handling the distribution of those heads now. (they also sell Flux heads)
