How Boom-Buddy Started

In the early 2000s, Keith Hicks invented the Boom-Buddy - An aid to assist boom operators from aches and pains. The Boom-Buddy has changed very little since its inception, with only a few improvements along the way. Several years after the birth of Boom-Buddy, Keith invented the Boom Swinger – another aid to assist boom operators.

In 2021, Boom-Buddy was acquired by Mack Sound Ltd after Keith retired. Mack Sound wanted to ensure the brand and products would continue after Keith’s earnt retirement and promised to nurture and grow the brand. A few months after the acquisition, Boom-Buddy released the first ever Boom-Buddy boom poles. Boom pole cases soon followed, and the brand continued to grow.

In November 2023, DMA Broadcast Ltd (Danny, Mitch, Alex), purchased Boom-Buddy from Mack Sound. Boom-Buddy has continued to grow as a brand and now have over 30 dealers around the world.

Boom-Buddy's Mission

Our mission is to continue from where Keith started – manufacture products to assist and support boom operators. We want our products to be a vital part of the boom operator’s kit, products that have a long shelf life, and a low carbon footprint. We try to reuse our packaging materials, don’t use any plastic product packaging (if we can help it) and use green couriers.

We want to introduce exciting groundbreaking products, support students and places of education, and grow the Boom-Buddy brand following Keith’s footsteps.
