Versatile microphone boom pole holder & support system
With the Boom-Buddy your microphone boom pole is gently held in the cradle with no clamping mechanism to cause damage. The Boom-Buddy eliminates operator fatigue during use.
The pole can be removed in a matter of only a few seconds. The Boom-Buddy also enables location Sound Recordists to change from hand held microphone boom operation to a static situation momentarily, without re-rigging microphone or cables.
We normally suggest using the second section of a 5 or 6 section boom as the point to rest in the Boom-Buddy cradle. To prevent damaging the boom, it's not clamped into the cradle.
The boom can be fitted into the Boom-Buddy in seconds without the need to re-rig. Any lighting stand with a 5/8" spigot can be used or a conventional mic stand. Supplied with the Boom-Buddy is a fabric Buddy-Bag which slips over the end of the boom. This can take a camera battery, water bottle or other weight to act as a counter balance if you are using the boom at long extension. By using a lighting stand, you can position your microphone at greater heights than with a conventional mic. stand/boom.
