PSC Elite Boom Pole – Extra Large
The PSC Elite Boom Pole – Extra Large from Professional Sound Corporation® represent a no-compromise design based on our vast boom pole experience. All Elite boom poles were in essence, designed by you, our customers. The design is a compilation of more than 22 years of customer feedback and suggestions. Each pole is handcrafted in the USA from the finest materials available.
The Elite series of boom pole tubes utilize a blend of super high modulus carbon fibres that are precision wound to our specifications by the top carbon fibre specialists in the U.S.A. These high tech tubes provide a delicate balance of strength, stiffness, torsion rigidity and low handling noise. Hundreds of hours went into the design of these carbon fibre masterpieces. After winding, each tube is impregnated with the highest quality resins available and baked under tight, computer-controlled temperature and humidity conditions. Each tube is then painstakingly ground to the highest aerospace tolerances.
The Elite series of boom poles utilize a system of fixed threaded mounts, locking collars and locking rings in order to offer unparalleled locking characteristics with a simple half-turn of the wrist. Smooth, easy use and years of trouble-free service were our initial design criteria. We think you will agree that these locking collars overwhelmingly meet these requirements. Each collar is machined from T6061-T6 billet aircraft aluminium using state of the art computer controlled lathes programmed and operated by a skilled master craftsman with decades of experience. The fixed threaded mounts and locking collars incorporate a debris blocking ring to help keep unwanted material out of the locking mechanism. The locking rings are made from high purity white Delrin for uncompromised performance in any weather condition. Like the locking collars, the Delrin locking rings are machined to super tight tolerances.
Each Elite series boom pole is equipped with a removable top screw to allow for quick and easy mounting of your various microphones. These removable top screws are machined from aluminium and anodized for lasting good looks. These top screws also incorporate a clever cable slot for easy and quick screw changes or cable installations. The removable top screws are extensively machined to reduce weight in non-critical areas. Additional top screws are available separately for mounting to all of your microphone shock mounts.
The heel end of the Elite boom poles features a fixed, lightweight aluminium threaded mount that is compatible with the various end caps available. These end caps include a male XLR bottom for use with internal coiled cable assemblies, a right angle XLR bottom for use with internal coiled cables and plug-on transmitters, an end cap that incorporates a robust rubber bumper and an end cap that features an easy-flow cable exit for use with straight cables. All of these specialized end caps are machined from aluminium and are thus virtually unbreakable. They do not suffer from pulled and stripped threads as other brands do.
