The Blue Compass is a premium enclosed-style desktop mic boom arm.
Not only will this free up surface estate taken up by desk mic tripods, it will clear the clutter caused by full studio floorstands.
Furthermore, it looks cool. Oh, and I am already wanting one!
Blue Compass mic boom
The arm features a rather sleeek design with built-in cable management. I have also been reassured that it is practically silent when being adjusted.
Compass is the perfect desktop boom solution for a wide range of broadcast applications. As a podcaster and musician, I am certainly interested in this. Also, game streamers, voice-over artists, and other broadcasters should get on this.
Tommy Edwards, Director of Product Management at Blue Microphones, said.
Podcasters, streamers and audio professionals have been asking us for a boom arm solution that works with Yeti and other pro mics, and we’re excited to introduce Compass.
Compass is the ultimate boom solution for applications where you want the mic off the desktop or positioned for on-camera broadcasting. We’ve designed it to be nimble and sleek so creators can adjust their mic into the perfect position without any of the squeaking of scissor boom arms. It’s also designed to securely hold the weight of heavier mics like Yeti or lighter weight broadcast mics. Whether you adjust the boom to disappear off camera or feature it front and center, Compass fits perfectly into any game streaming or podcasting setup and lets you position your mic where you want it.”
Compass is also featured in the new Blue Yeticaster bundle, which includes Yeti, the new Radius III shockmount, and Compass, for a complete, professional broadcast setup out of the box.
