The Gitzo GB2551 microphone boom is a professional new-generation carbon fiber microphone boom built to reliably support sound engineers handle cables easily and precisely for quick and secure setup in all situations.
This comfortable, handy boom has all Gitzo’s renowned distinctive features, including stiffness, stability and lightness. The Gitzo GB2551 manages cables in a way that significantly improves operation speed and handling ease in the field. It provides facilitated cabling to eliminate unwanted noise: the sound cable can be fed through the boom thanks to easily removable top and bottom attachments. The cable thus exits naturally on both sides, allowing the user to place the boom vertically on the floor without pinching the cable. Alternatively, the cable can run outside the boom. The bottom end of the boom is equipped with a resistant rubber foot that enables sound engineers to rest by holding the boom vertically against the floor, keeping the sound cable clear.
The Gitzo GB2551 features the latest Carbon eXact tubing which outperforms the previous Carbon 6X tubing in terms of stiffness. This new model has larger tube diameters but remains as lightweight as its predecessors, weighing just 0.61kg. It provides new levels of stiffness and rigidity - even when fully extended to 251cm, one of the most popular size used by professionals.
On the end of the boom, a stiffer 14.7mm tube reduces unwanted flexing, keeping microphones stable in the desired position. The boom also features an ergonomic front-hand rubber grip that helps users hold it stably and comfortably. The new Gitzo microphone booms feature the new G-lock Ultra system, Gitzo’s latest-generation quick and rigid leg-locking mechanism.
Along with the other models in this new range, the Gitzo GB2551 is equipped with a reversible 3/8”-1/4” screw, allowing connection to most microphone holders, including the Gitzo G11510N.
With the optional 3/8”-5/8” G1145 adapter, it can connect to other microphone holders with a 5/8” thread.
The Gitzo GB2551 is part of a new range covering popular lengths and tube diameters designed to meet the needs of most location filming, providing an optimal combination of lightness and stiffness.
