K-Tek's New KlassicPro Boompole Series!

1st Jul 2019

The New K-Tek KlassicPro Poles offer increased interchangeability with the newly designed removable headpiece. Gone are the soldered and sealed poles of the past. Today’s redesigned headpiece, after removing a standard sized set screw, simply threads on and off the tube smoothly. The cable of choice can be removed or installed—without soldering. The boom pole is readily transformed to un-cabled, coil-cabled or with a transmitter at the top or the bottom. There are no more time-consuming transformations and no need to purchase a completely new system just to comply with a cabling change.
K-Tek's KlassicPro poles are more rigid and have a shorter collapsed length which is desired in today’s production environment. KlassicPro’s maintain the original light weight of the tubes, yet the new design features added strength. Also, adding a sixth section and wider tubes increases the stiffness and optimizes handling balance. The result is quicker cuing and more user control of the microphone.
Another new benefit is a change to the locking collars. The traditional K-Tek captive collar has been modified with a thicker yet smoother surface allowing for more subtle, gradual extension of each section. A new anodizing process combined with changing the exterior dimples to oval divets gives a better grip and smoother feel when opening and closing each collar. The finish between the tubes has also been modified so the KlassicPro sleekly glides open and closed. New KlassicPro poles are hand-burnished to diffuse handling noise.

The K-Tek KlassicPros will be offered in four sizes in both uncabled and side-exit cabled versions.
