How to Build your own functional boom microphone

Joe Richardson, Five Sprockets consultant, demonstrates how to build your own functional boom microphone. First, if you don't already have one, get a microphone from your local electronics store. Then, pick up a mic holder. Next, you'll also need a telescoping pole like a painter's pole. You'll also need zip ties and metal bonding glue. A piece of fake fur from a fabric store will act as a wind sock to cut down on noise. Attach the mic head to the painter's pole with the metal bonding glue. Next, sew the fake fur into a windsock, and put it over the mic. Zip tie the mic cord to the pole to keep the excess cord taut. Your boom mic should cost about $44.00.
