Rycote Microphone Windshields Ltd – a Vitec Imaging Solutions brand and the world leader in industry-standard shock and wind protection for field sound production, is delighted to announce the launch of their new range of carbon fibre microphone boom poles.
One Brand – a Complete System
With microphone windshields and shock-mounts at its core, and the recent addition of the PCS-Boom Connector quick release, Rycote has decided to take it a step further. Introducing a range of professional carbon fibre microphone boom poles to provide a fully integrated system for the sound professional.
With the combined expertise of Rycote in professional sound recording and Vitec’s carbon fibre technology used in their market-leading tripods, has produced a perfectly balanced and precise tool for the boom operator.
The professional lightweight carbon fibre boom poles with silky sliding tubes, intuitive locks and rattle free positioning provides unparalleled performance for boom ops in any scenario.
Essential Elements for Rapid Dependability
• Precision and Balance
High modulus (HM) “Carbon eXact” developed in partnership with Gitzo tripods allows for narrower tubes to be even stiffer. The carbon fibre tubes assure for both maximum lightness and superb rigidity that guarantee minimum flex – even when fully extended.
• Fast and Secure Locks
Superior twist-locks with a multi-pitched thread adopted from state-of-the-art tripod technology, ensure rapid extension and collapse of the boom pole with only a quarter-turn of the knurled aluminium grip to open or lock each section. The ingenious design guarantees tube sections do not twist when unlocked. Despite the dust-preventative design, each section can be disassembled and reassembled for cleaning or maintenance.
• Convenience as Standard
Both the 3/8” threaded male tip and the rubberised bottom end cap are removable to allow for easy internal cabling or cabling adjustments.
