Project Description

Designed for discerning and demanding professional boom operators and location sound recordists, the Ambient Recording QP5130 QuickPole Series 5 carbon fiber 5-section boompole offers the ultralight weight of Ambient’s QXS poles and the stability of their QP series booms. The QP5130 extends from 134 – 532cm

The QP5130’s new design features a tube made from a custom carbon fiber compound with UHM fiber layering and anti-twist mechanisms that use serrations instead of retention pins, yielding impressive sturdiness and effortless maintenance. Additional design enhancements allow the QP5130 to lock and unlock with a mere quarter turn and to facilely and quickly extend and collapse.

Thanks to the removable tip and separately available cable sets, the QP5130 can easily be configured for internal cabling, no soldering required.

Light and Sturdy

Ambient’s Series 5 boompoles combine the best properties of their QXS and QP series thanks to their new tube technology, which uses a custom-made carbon fiber compound with added UHM fiber layering. With this technology, the QuickPole Series 5 boompole becomes as sturdy as the QP 4-segment series while remaining as lightweight as the QXS 5-segment series.

Easy Operation

On set, you have to work fast. The QuickPole Series 5 addresses that with a key feature—the new Teflon sheet plus silicone-lubricated felts that make for silky-smooth extending and collapsing of the boompole. The telescoping function of the pole works so efficiently that you’ll be able to capture any sound source. The re-engineered locks give you a better grip thanks to the refined knurling and slightly extended length. By tuning the threading further, only a quarter turn is needed to open and close the locks securely and quickly.

Intersectional Twist Protection

A new anti-twist mechanism utilizes an innovative serration in place of a retention pin. The lock pieces automatically fall into place when you disassemble and reassemble your pole for cleaning or maintenance, making the process effortless.

Cable Retrofit

The newly designed tip and separately available bottom end and cable set allow for easy, solder-free cable retrofit. Simply take off the tip, insert the pre-configured internal cabling, and plug it into the butt-end. No muss, no fuss—exactly how a coupling system should be.
