Award Winning Boompoles Designed and Manufactured in the USA
Since its’ founding in 1996 by Manfred N Klemme, K-Tek has been supporting the audio world with innovative tools to make the job of the sound engineer and boom operator just a bit smoother. With a passion for audio, Manfred’s first mission was to design and manufacture a line of U.S.made boom poles that were both lightweight yet super strong and so audio friendly that folks took notice. Mission accomplished. In 1999 K-Tek won a Technical Achievement Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the Klassic Boom Pole. Since then, K-Tek has earned a slew of other awards and the reputation of making an array of elegantly designed and beautifully constructed,audio-centric products.
Manfred knew that meaningful contribution to the audio world took more than innovation. To earn the trust of his clients, K-Tek’s products were (and still are) built without compromise to stand the test of any working environment.And customer service is still paramount to the K-Tekphilosophy. That’s why we stand behind our products 100%. “When I need to order new or replacement equipment, the company is fast and efficient. I always know they will get me whatever I need quickly, and in prime condition.”John Agalsoff, Jr., Boom Operator on “Castle” When Manfred left his legacy to his daughter Brenda, it was clear she too shared the spirit of innovation. In 2013 K-Tek introduced the award-winning “Nautilus”, with a uniquely elegant design that literally redefines microphone suspension mounts. And that’s not all. The Nautilus suspension mount is the heart of the soon-to-be-introduced “Zeppelin” which will likely make conventional windscreens relics of the past.
