AMBIENT BOOM POLES (FISHPOLES) - Carbon Fibre - Cabled

These boompoles have been designed and manufactured by Ambient Recording of München, Germany for aiding audio capture in feature film recording, broadcast recording, ENG, and sound capture where extra reach is required. Cabling and terminations are installed as standard.

QXS Light Boompole Series – Cabled

QXS range is a series of carbon-fibre, 5-section boompoles designed specifically for documentary and ENG booming work. They are constructed using pull-braiding carbon-fibre tubing with 1mm wall thickness, reducing the weight compared to the QP feature series. Screw locking rings and other mechanical parts are machined from aircraft aluminium, and a stainless steel 3/8 inch mounting thread has been designed to ‘survive thousands of microphone changes’.

Wiring options include either mono 3-pin XLR or stereo 5-pin XLR terminations, and the output can be of either ‘flow-through’ sideways outlet, whereby the cable exits the boompole via a slot located on the side of the handle and is terminated with corresponding plug; or ‘bottom’ outlet whereby the output termination is integrated into the end of the boompole handle. The latter option does not have a protruding cable at the handle.

These booms are also available without the pre-installed cable and terminations. See “AMBIENT BOOM POLES (FISHPOLES) - Carbon Fibre“
