K-Tek Boom Box & KTA2B Sidekick Transmitter Adapter

April 19, 2017 in News, Press Releases


K-Tek is proud to announce the addition of the Boom Box to their audio product lineup. Designed by professional Boompole Operator William Munroe, the Boom Box was created to fulfill a practical need on set.

The Boom Box is a strong and versatile Microphone Boom Stand which doubles as an Apple Box. Not only does it provide an ingenious way to stand and store a boompole on set, it also provides a dedicated working platform and station for the boom operator. At 13 pounds (5.9 kg) this versatile accessory is easy to move around, yet thanks to its hefty built-in center rib, it can support up to 350 pounds (159 kg).

With dimensions of 12x12x20 inches, (30.5cm x 30.5 x 50.8cm) this useful wooden box features numerous flush cut-out handles for easy carrying, and a large center cylinder for the boompole. Two sides are left solid to stand on. Finished with two coats of take-whatever-you-throw-at-it marine varnish, it resists sun and moisture for a long life on the set.

Boom Box designer William Munroe explains, “I created the Boom Box because I needed it on the set based on my own location needs. Folks kept asking for it so now I am excited to see that by partnering with K-Tek, more boom operators around the world the can have access to the practical advantages it offers.”

K-Tek also makes the new Sidekick KTA2B, a more compact solution to connect wireless transmitters to K-Tek Klassic Boompoles. The new KTA2B Sidekick not only plugs a transmitter into the bottom of an audio pole, but also takes up less room, making it ideal for use with the Boom Box. Due to the modular structure of K-Tek’s Klassic boompoles, switching to the Sidekick is a breeze.

The KTA2B Sidekick module is listed at $125.
The multi-functional Boom Box boomstand is listed at $185.
