Boom Pole Operators Have New Option From K-Tek
Boom pole operators have a new option with the Klassic Traveler Kit from
K-Tek. Created to meet the needs of the
busy boom pole operator on the go, this convenient new kit offers the
K-Tek Klassic six-section graphite boom pole (K-87CC), K-Mount microphone
suspension (K-MT), and a slip-on Fuzzy windscreen (Z-FSO).
The company says K-Tek’s new Klassic graphite pole is engineered for quick storage and
easy transportation. The six-section design allows the pole to collapse
to a shorter minimum length, with no sacrifice to maximum reach. The
K-87CC extends to 7’3” (221cm) and can be compressed to 1’10” (56cm).
Crafted of high-density graphite fiber,
the pole offers
the same great benefits as the top-of-the-line Klassic 5-Section Boom
Pole series. Locking collars feature K-Tek’s trademark dimples and a
“Soft-Touch” rubberized sleeve for an easier grip and more comfortable
comes outfitted with an internal coiled cable and a bottom XLR connector.
The K-Mount microphone suspension (K-MT) offers users both the
ruggedness of a shock mount and the isolation characteristics of more
expensive suspension systems. The system features K-Tek’s four-point
polymer microphone suspenders (K-SUS) fitted precisely into a
cylindrical aluminum frame.
The K-Tek Slip-On Fuzzy combines a high-quality faux fur exterior with
a tightly woven fabric backing, making it the only slip-on windscreen
with an extra layer of wind protection, according to the company. Users have a choice of a small,
medium or large windscreen to fit a multitude of microphones.
Purchased separately, these items retail for $685.00. K-Tek is offering
the Klassic Traveler Kit at a package price of just $575.00. A second
kit featuring the Avalon Traveler aluminum boom pole (#KE-79CC),
K-Mount and Slip-On Fuzzy is also available for $335.00.
