Step 3: Making a boom mic

sincei am not that great with descriptions, i will instead show my artistic abilities and show you my description of how to make a boom mic and attach it to the rib cage.

why do this you ask?
-well boom mic operators need really strong arms.
fact: not everybody has strong arms with lots of endurance
-also, it is near effortless. enjoy!

what it basically says is: (assumed you built the cage) you need a 3/4 pvc pipe 30 degree electrical pipe 90 degree electrical pipe (did i mention it was grey?....you can obtain this in your electrical conduit section) 1 coupler (it couples things) attach the coupler to the 90 degree pipe and than to the 3/4 pvc pipe and than to the 30 degree pipe. Kinda like in the picture. Did that somewhat answer your question?
yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

oh yeah...........its for lazy people who don't have the strength to hold it that long (you do notice those guys have really strong arms)
I'm not sure exactly what the benefit of a static rig-mounted microphone would be. Soundwise, you'd be a lot better off with the whole "big guy holding a mic tied to a stick" set-up, don't you think?
