The lightweight SBS0400 Stereo Boom with Shock Mounted Microphone Holders from DPA Microphones addresses the need for quick, precise, and repeatable ways to switch between AB, XY, ORTF, and DIN stereo principles. The included shock mounts hold both omni-directional and directional microphones, compact as well as large. Based on the Rycote ® Lyre suspension system, any microphone can be used simply by adding another Lyre™ rubber piece.
Markers on the boom indicate parallel microphones positioning plus 90 and 110° offset for XY and ORTF configurations. A central base with rotary joint allows the microphones to be angled equally. This stereo boom also features hooks for suspending the boom in wires. The boom is 1.3’ (0.4m) long and more holders can be attached to it for mounting of more than 2 microphones.
