Our boom mic kit includes a high-end audio recorder for dual-system sound. We provide training on best practices for recording high-quality sync sound on film shoots. You may also request a microphone stand instead of a boom pole.

Features:

  • Zoom H4 or H5 audio recorder accepts dual-channel XLR inputs

  • Boom pole allows for better placement of microphones (either manually or with tripod)

  • Rode and Sennheiser professional shotgun microphones record high quality directional sound

Wired Lavalier Microphone Kit

Professional Wired Lavalier Microphone Kit

These contact mics are great for interviews. Attach the transmitter to your talent's belt, and run an XLR cable into one of our professional camcorders or Zoom H4/H5 audio recorders.

Wireless Lavalier Microphone Kit

Our wireless kits transmit an audio signal over radio frequencies—tricky to set up, but great for situations when your talent is distanced from your camera and sound crew. Each kit includes a transmitter and receiver, which can be paired with our Zoom H4/H5 audio recorders or the XLR audio ports on our professional video cameras.

Options:

  • Lectrosonics and Sennheiser models available

  • Each system uses a different radio frequency

  • Two systems may used with a single camera or audio recorder, in order to record two different voices
