These booms were designed for tripod mounted operation and by using our Quickpole multilayer carbon fibre tubes with an increased OD up to 40mm they can be extended to more than 10 meters. Various accessories are obtainable for mounting the booms on light stands with pivoting clamp and counterweights.
By extending the stand they can be used to place microphones up to 12 meters above ground level in recording situations as studio, classical music, church organ, feature film crowd scenes and also for surround recordings with the A-RAY. Jumbo booms have also been used to carry small cameras, lights, measuring equipment or aerials.
The booms can be internally cabled and a special tip permits to even pass multicore cables as used for multichannel recordings. The end is fitted with a slotted tube, ring and carabiner for attaching a counter weight.
