A boom pole blimp acts as a wind cover for your microphone to prevent any irregularities. There are multiple benefits brought on by different boom poles and blimps. However there are some things that should be well thought of before getting the best supporting equipment for your microphone.

Microphone Boom Poles

The most basic thing to consider is the construction. The best option would be Aluminium and Carbon-fibre. This is because there is more extension capacity and an increase in durability when these materials are used. An important thing to know about in a microphone boom pole is its capability of adapting to different positions.

A boom pole can adjust to different lengths and should be on the top of your check list. Most boom poles come with different lock systems to reduce their length which makes them easy to carry. You should look for the boom operator consisting of lightweight mic and pole. Lightweight equipment is an advantage for you if you need to change your location frequently.

A microphone boom pole blimp often comes with a windshield with an acoustic cover and this can be an ideal choice for you. Such blimps limit the sound perfectly avoiding any decrease in the sound quality. The windscreen protects the sensitive diaphragm of the microphone’s capsule from sound rumble.  The ideal boom pole blimp should be adjustable to different mic shapes as well. Most blimps offer protection from dust and minor bumps and are a good option to consider.

A microphone boom pole should have good grip as well. You should consider padded poles to avoid any sound resulting from excessive hand movement. Such a microphone boom pole will offer you extra comfort when holding the microphone for a long time period. The most important thing to consider in a boom pole is its compatibility. There are microphones of different lengths and your personal boom pole should easily adapt to different boom mic and pole lengths in a boom operator.

Having such extra equipment is always an added bonus. When the sound quality is improved, the video content produced is much better to look at.
