After receiving my microphone, I decided I’d like a boom arm that allowed me to move the microphone closer to my mouth and give me more flexibility on the desk.
I tested a Thronmax Caster boom arm. It is designed to work with all Thronmax microphones and supports most of the mics on the market. It is compatible with all standard shock mounts.
It arrived in a long skinny container. The box contains an extruded aluminium boom arm, clamp, colour user manual, stickers and adapters.
You don’t need to assemble anything. Just attach the clamp to your table, and then place the boom arm on top.
The c clamp was easy to add to the side of my desk. Then it was easy to attach my microphone to the boom arm.
You might like to think about your preferred side of the desk or table, and this may depend on what side the USB port on your laptop or computer is. I plugged it in and the mic was ready to go.
The boom arm has an advanced internal spring design and hidden cable management. If you like to have a sleek and industrial desk setup, this one will suit your decor.
You can then hand tighten the friction hinges allow for smooth and quiet operation. I found the boom arm a little on the stiff side without a large range of movement. There is a 32-inch reach with a 1 kg maximum hold weight.
Thronmax Caster Boom Arm is affordable and sturdy with the added benefit of hiding your cables for a clutter-free look.
