Matthews Mini Boom


The Matthews Mini Boom was developed because of the growing demand for a boom that would not bend when an array of accessories were added to it, such as small lighting fixtures or strobes with light banks, egg crates etc.


Made completely out of steel, the Mini Boom mounts on a 5/8″ Baby Pin and will extend over 80″ (203cm), terminating in a 5/8″ pin. A hook is provided at the rear end of the boom to accommodate a sandbag for balancing. As an accessory Matthews offers a Baby Drop Down #427804. The pivoting mount of the Baby dropdown allows the use of a light box or other lighting instruments to maintain at a horizontal position regardless of the angle of the boom.

Extends from 45″ (115cm) to over 80″ (203cm).

Weight: 7.5lbs

CAUTION: Any light boom that is not properly balanced is extremely dangerous on a set. When calculating the proper stand on which to attach the boom, be sure to include the amount of counter weight in addition to the lighting fixture and accessories being used.
