Designed for flexibility in work

The QXS series was specifically designed for documentary and ENG booming work. That’s why we built the QXS series poles with 5 segments, effectively delivering 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 QXS pull-braiding 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, the all-new collars feature a machined knurl that provides outstanding grip, to secure a fast and confident handling of the pole. Furthermore, the new locking system designed for the QXS Boom Poles locks faster and easier than previous designs while providing a stronger lock between segments– for even better prevention of slipping and twisting. 
Additionally, 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 manufactured, ultra-thin cables optimized for field audio conditions. 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 QXS is available in 5 different lengths.
