Pistol grips for use with Rycote microphone suspensions and an extension handle with a standard 3/8 inch thread, use when hand-holding microphones in the field.

Soft Grip Extension Handle

A lightweight extension handle, fitted with a soft-feel foam grip, that enables the user to hand-hold simple microphone mounts or portable recorders and cameras with a 3/8 inch female thread. One end has a 3/8 inch threaded stud to fit the equipment. At the other end there is 3/8 inch female thread, so the assembly can be mounted quickly on a stand or boom, avoiding the need to remove the handle first. Overall length: 120mm.

048401 - Pistol Grip Handle with Lever

For use with Modular Windscreens, Softie and Super Shield kits, this is a moulded handle with a slot at the top to fit the microphone mount. The mount may be positioned at the required angle then locked using a lever with ratchet.

The moulding has a slot for a cable to enter the handle and a slot to grip an XLR connector, thus providing a strain relief for a lightweight cable to the microphone, in such a position that the external cable can be connected quickly. The handle may be attached to a microphone stand or boom by means of the 3/8 inch threaded insert in the base, avoiding the need for disassembly when the need arises to change from hand-held to stand-mounted operation.

048438 - Pistol Grip Handle With Star Knob

For use with all micrphone suspensions, this is the same handle body as is used for the 048401 above but instead of a lever, the handle is locked using a 'star' shaped knob.
