Designed for flexibility in work

The QX series was specifically designed for documentary and ENG booming work. Therefore, QX series poles are built with 5 segments to allow for a better collapsed to extended ratio. This enables easy transportation while providing long lengths when needed.
With an understanding of the rigors that the material must endure in everyday work situations, we designed the QX pull-wind carbon fiber tubes with a 1mm wall thickness to achieve light-weight with highdurability properties.

Selected materials

While all mechanical parts are machined out of aircraft aluminum, the 3/8″ thread is made out of solid stainless steel to survive thousands of microphone changes.
 Internal soft felt bushings ensure rattle free operation and no seizing by dirt, humidity or cold temperatures. Once necessary collet and felt can easily be replaced on maintenance by the user at minimal cost to give an “as new” feel.

When every moment counts

In ENG applications, situations arise where every second counts. Therefore, Ambient offers three different internal cabling options with multiple connector outlet variations to prevent cable “Spaghetti” when that critical situation occurs.

The cabled booms are equipped with in-house production, optimized ultra-thin cables. With an effective shielding and a polyurethane insulation, these durable cables provide excellent endurance while maintaining flexibility even in temperatures as low as -40° C (-40° F).

The QX is available in 5 different lengths.
