K-Tek, makers of pro level audio equipment, have created the Airo — a budget friendly kit that provides an entry into the boom pole world for anyone looking to make the jump one-day into professional production. Details and price point below:
Not included in the kit, but also available in the Airo line is a mixer bag (capable of holding the Zoom H4, F8 and Sound Devices MixPre 3 & 6) and a c-stand boom pole. The c-stand boom pole mount is especially useful for long duration interviews. Trust me. You don’t want to be handling a boom pole for a 45 minute sit-down interview.

This seems like a great starter kit for anyone interested in breaking into professional field audio work. The build quality, given the price, seems rugged and considering the K-Tek brand has had a history of success in this category this appears to be a kit poised to launch a few students or entry level folks into the audio profession.
Pricing and Availability
The K-Tek Airo line of audio gear is available now and you can get the aformentioned kit, including the boompole with shockmount, softie, bag and XLR cable, for $250.
