AMBIENT BOOM POLES (FISHPOLES) - Carbon fibre

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. Cases are available, see AMBIENT BOOM CASES for further information.

QP Feature Film Series

Quickpole range is a series of finely engineered, carbon-fibre, 4-section boompoles. They are constructed using high modulus carbon-fibre tubing with 1.5mm wall thickness, giving increased stiffness at lengths over 5 metres but retaining a good strength-to-weight ratio. Due to the wall thickness and one carbon-fibre crosswinding, the tubes are very strong in the compression mode and can be stood upon without breaking. With very substantial aluminium screw locking rings, extra-thick tubing and stainless steel 3/8 inch mounting thread, these deluxe booms are well up to daily scrambles with the ENG pack, whilst special attention to bushing arrangements helps them generate very little boom noise; ideal for more sophisticated drama and feature shoots.

The booms are available in standard lengths with 30mm outside tubing. A 35mm diameter single piece 1400mm extension, QP120, is available to fit all QP series fishpoles.

The extension has the added advantage that it can be extended like the other segments. The rubber foot is removed, revealing the nylon felt spacer. The extension is fitted like an extra segment, and can be left on the boom.

QXS Light Boompole Series

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’.

The booms are also available with various pre-installed cabled options. See AMBIENT BOOM POLES (FISHPOLES) - Carbon Fibre - Cabled
