I just bought a nice Sennheiser shotgun MIC...

Can anyone recommend a way to put it on a pole to make it a nice Boom mic?


Something that doesn't look too ghetto :)

Lol, that's the problem I am having...

I am sure you guys have some fantastic ideas.

Your time is greatly appreciated...

THANKS

Budget?

If you have the money, get a real boompole with a shockmount on it. There should be lots of threads on this if you do a search.

If you have clients who will see your boom, get a professional one that looks good. It will be a good investment as it will help you get paid by your clients.
If you boom a lot, get the real thing because your boom op's arms will thank you for it.

The not-as-great DIY solution:
Get a light pole of some sort, like the stuff they use for painting (like on paint rollers).

Get a shockmount suspension for the microphone so vibrational noise doesn't get into your mic.

Figure out how to mount the shockmount onto your pole... it'll likely involve thread adapters.

Get a cable tie for the mic cable and use it to secure the cable at the top/end of the boompole.

I haven't tried this myself, but that would seem to be the way to do it.

2- Would you also need a windscreen for your mic?
