The KA-113 has four telescoping sections before the joint and two more after, providing a reach of nearly nine and one half feet (287 cm). Five positive locking positions provide articulation at 90, 112.5, 135, 157.5, or 180 dgrees. This allows the microphone to be placed at, under or over the subject or over obstructions.
K-Tek's patented articulated design allows the operator to comfortably hold the pole with one hand with the mushroom base at the belt line, freeing one hand to operate the mixer. The pole goes up over and back down to accurately position the microphone while staying outside of the frame line.
Or invert the pole and the articulation allows you to go under and back up to position the microphone. A simple two-person interview can be done with the mushroom base on the floor (or operator's toe) and the articulated section positioned over the talent. Rotating the pole moves the microphone.
