The KP9CCR 9' KlassicPro Graphite 6-Section Boompole with Internal XLR Coiled Cable, Side Exit from K-Tek features a removable headpiece for cable reconfiguration without soldering. The top attachment is a 3/8" male thread that includes a coiled cable with a KlassicPro right angle connector and a bottom male 3-pin XLR with a side exit. This boompole can be used as a solution for Film, Broadcast TV, Electronic News Gathering (ENG), Electronic Field Productions, (EFP), and other field recording applications.
The KP9CCR boompole measures 31.5" to 9.3' in length. The cable of choice can be removed or installed without soldering and transformed to uncabled, coil cabled, straight cable, or with a transmitter at the top or the bottom (sold separately). Gone are the soldered and sealed poles of the past. After removing a standard sized set screw, the headpiece simply threads on and off the tube smoothly.
Furthermore, no more time-consuming transformations and a need to purchase a completely new system just to comply with a cabling change. The updated cable kits are built with a higher-quality coiled cable that features a low-profile, right-angle connector and incorporates thicker gauge wiring and aluminum shielding. This makes it stronger and protected from radio frequency (RF) interference. Also, the connector is smaller, lighter, serviceable, and made with a Neutrik connector at its base.
Additionally, the traditional K-Tek collett has been modified with a thicker and smoother surface, which allows for more subtle, gradual extension of each section. Changing the exterior dimples to oval divets gives a better grip and smoother feel when opening and closing each collar. Additionally, the finish between the tubes have been modified so the KlassicPro boompole glides open and closes easily. The boompole is hand-burnished to diffuse handling noise.
