The Gitzo GB4571XL is a special 7-section microphone boom that extends up to 473 cm, the biggest of the new range. This new-generation carbon fiber microphone boom guarantees sound engineers precise and reliable support, ensuring intuitive, easy cable handling for quick and secure setup in all situations. Despite its extensive reach, this boom is comfortable and makes easy work of flawless sound takes. It has all Gitzo’s renowned distinctive design features, including stiffness, stability and lightness – with extra extension.

The Gitzo GB4571XL is built with the very latest, high-performance Carbon eXact tubing, superior to the previous Carbon 6X tubing in terms of stiffness. Despite its superior size, this model is lightweight (just 1.12kg) and ensures higher levels of stiffness and rigidity - even when extended to its full length – eliminating unwanted flexing and keeping microphones stable in the desired position. The Gitzo GB4571XL manages cables precisely, improving operation speed and handling ease in the field. It helps eliminate unwanted noise through facilitated internal cabling: the sound cable can be fed through the boom thanks to easily removable top and bottom attachments, exiting naturally on both sides. Alternatively, the cable can run outside the boom.

The boom features an ergonomic front-hand rubber grip that helps users hold it stably and comfortably. The bottom end of the boom is equipped with a resistant rubber foot that enables sound engineers to rest holding the boom vertically against the floor, while the cable exits from the side without getting pinched. The tube locks have been upgraded to G-lock Ultra, Gitzo’s latest-generation quick and rigid leg-locking mechanism.
Along with the other models in this new range, the Gitzo GB4571XL is equipped with a reversible 3/8”-1/4” screw, allowing it to connect 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 GB4571XL is the largest microphone boom in the new range covering popular lengths and tube diameters, designed to meet the needs of sound engineers in all locations and to provide an optimal combination of lightness and stiffness.
