Designed by professional Boom Pole 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 boom pole 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 boom pole. 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.”
Each Boom Box is handmade, sanded and varnished in Southern California.
