WORLD NEWS The boompole which is one step beyond! F or more than 20 years Ambient Recording has produced professional carbon fiber boompoles. The tubes used for their products are not off the shelf items but specially manufactured to their own specification using upscaled yet still affordable Hi-Q modulus carbon fibers. This high quality soon made Ambient one of the leading manufacturers for professional booms in many parts of the world. Now they wanted to go one step beyond and construct a masterpiece. The QS boompole is handmade out of Pre-preg carbon. This is an extremely time- consuming way of production but it gives the possibility to design the tube characteristics layer by layer. Their aim was to create a boom so stiff, lightweight and well balanced that the boom op can control his microphone like a surgeon controls his scalpel but from an 18 feet distance! Besides the tubing they refashioned the screw locks for better grip when working with gloves. The result achieved is nothing less than the stiffest, most precise boom on the market that can truly be called the best pole they’ve ever built!
