  1. I am looking for a 25mm top collar for this vdB carbon fiber boompole. I have reached out to the manufacturer in Paris, but the technicians appear to be on vacation. In the meantime, I am looking for used parts from Rode, Ktek and the like.
  2. Recently, I found two sections of my Vdb XL-QT are unable to be locked tightly. Used indoor, the pole is alright, but when the blimp and windjammer are on, the two collars of the pole simply can’t hold the weight and those two sections would easily turn. I wonder why it happens. I rarely use this pole in unusual locations like the beach. Is there anything I can do to fix it by myself instead sending it back to Vdb or even purchasing a new pole? My appreciation.
  3. Hello everyone, I have an old VDB boom with over 10 years old. I disassembled it to clean, washed the tubes and collars and I will lubricate the threads with silicone grease as I read here on the forum. I would like to know what products you use after cleaning the tubes. Pledge polish? Carnauba Paste Wax (Turtle Wax or other)? Collinite 845 Liquid Insulator Wax? Thanks
  4. Hi everyone, I've found many topics (even in this forum) about boompole and cable (cabled vs uncabled booms, coiled vs straight cables, etc.) I've read many different opinions and as a newbie I'm a bit confused now. So, please, let me describe my situation before asking you some advices: I have a stereo mic (BP4025) with a XLR-5-pin plug. I'll use a Rycote blimp kit with XLR-5-pin plug too. Now I need a boompole. But the most important thing is that I'll have to follow my talent: let say that I'll have to move following her during a walk trying to capture the sounds of her footstep
  5. To celebrate their 20-year anniversary K-Tek brings back a beloved classic Boom Pole Accessory: the K-Tek Klassic Counterweight, which was previously also known as the Hodge’s Weight. As shooting days and individual take lengths continue to grow longer, boom pole operators everywhere are fighting fatigue. Even though K-Tek’s Graphite boom poles are some of the lightest in the industry, a rigged boom pole might actually “feel” heavier throughout a long shooting day. Although the weight of the dressed pole may only be four pounds, it’s the downward movement force of the microphone and mount
  6. Hello, has anyone here tried to put their own coiled cable into a rycote boompole without one? The construction seems almost the same. I only need the cable and cut the hole in the bottom. Also - any tips on sourcing coiled cable? Thanks, Jonas
  7. Ever tried mounting a KFT flow-through base underneath a KTA2? I like the form factor of the KFT's four inch slot for hand gripping, and from images it looks possible to lose the KTA2's mushroom cap base and replace it with the KFT. Perhaps?
  8. Munich, Germany 4th of April 2013 Ambient Recording goes Premium with the all new QS boompole For more than 20 years Ambient Recording has produced professional carbon fiber boompoles. The tubes used for our products are not off the shelf items but specially manufactured to our own specification using upscale yet still affordable Hi-Q modulus carbon fibers. This high quality soon made Ambient the leading manufacturer for professional booms in many parts of the world. Now we wanted to go one step beyond and construct our masterpiece. The QS boompole is handmade out of Pre-preg
  9. It was rarely so relieving to post that we are finally shipping... After our first production line (incl. the 3 QS poles shown in the USA) failed our quality tests because they were not as stiff as the prototypes but "only" as stiff as a QP, we suffered from the biggest flood in history. All streets to and from our boom factory were blocked for weeks. Luckily our facility is on a hill near Passau, so it was not directly affected by the flood. Today we finally could start the assembling of the first QS poles and start shipping. We are very sorry for anybody who had to wait and we
  10. Hi everybody, I'm soon going to buy my first boompole. Sometime ago I tried an Ambient QX from a local rental company and I liked how it did perform, so I'm thinking about ordering this one. Can anybody post about their experience with their QX poles? What are the pros and cons of using them? I'm mainly concerned about stiffness, handling noise and how smooth, durable and reliable the joint connections are. I WON'T be using the pole with an internal cable, and I'm in Europe. Thanks in advance for the input.
  11. As you may know, Ambient changed the design of their QP line of boom poles last year from matte black coated carbon fiber to a shiny weave of carbon fiber. Since buying a new QP-4140 last year, I've run into a couple of problems with it reflecting bright light sources that hit it directly. Normally you can cross a bright light source as long as it doesn't cast a shadow into frame or change the light level but the new design reflects light so this isn't always possible. In the attached pictures, there was a Source 4 to my right firing into the cabinet on the left and I was booming someone un
  12. I've been using K-tek for some time now, but wanted to know of any other boom poles that would be able to extend 12ft. and over, be lightweight and have low/no noise with an internal coiled cable. Any suggestions? Thanks, Steve
