November 24, 2008-- K-Tek introduces the Klassic Traveler Kit. Created to meet the needs of the busy boom pole operator on the go, this convenient new kit offers the K-Tek Klassic 6-Section graphite boom pole (K-87CC), K-Mount microphone suspension (K-MT), and a slip-on Fuzzy windscreen (Z-FSO) in a single, cost-effective package.
K-Tek's new Klassic graphite pole is engineered for quick storage and easy transportation. The six-section design allows the pole to collapse to a shorter minimum length, with no sacrifice to maximum reach. The K-87CC extends to 7'3" (221cm) and can be compressed to 1'10" (56cm). Crafted of high-density graphite fiber, the pole offers the same great benefits as the top-of-the-line Klassic 5-Section Boom Pole series. Locking collars feature K-Tek's trademark dimples and a "Soft-Touch" rubberized sleeve for an easier grip and more comfortable feel. The K-87CC comes outfitted with an internal coiled cable and a bottom XLR connector.
The K-Mount microphone suspension (K-MT) offers users both the ruggedness of a shock mount and the isolation characteristics of more expensive suspension systems. The system features K-Tek's 4-point polymer microphone suspenders (K-SUS) fitted precisely into a handsome cylindrical aluminum frame.
The K-Tek Slip-On Fuzzy combines a high-quality faux fur exterior with a tightly woven fabric backing -- making it the only slip-on windscreen with an extra layer of wind protection. Users have a choice of a small, medium or large windscreen to fit a multitude of microphones.
Purchased separately, these items retail for $685.00. K-Tek is offering the Klassic Traveler Kit at a package price of just $575.00. A second kit featuring the Avalon Traveler aluminum boom pole (#KE-79CC), K-Mount and Slip-On Fuzzy is also available for $335.00.
