We love flares

We know you do too

A flare can be beautiful, but sometimes filter reflections are ugly.With the new A.R.F tilt block you can tilt backwards or forwards upto 15°.

It's removable, and compatible with all our matte boxes.


More mounts than ever

Strummer DNA’s unique 3/8” and 1/4” side mounts give you the freedom to set up your camera in entirely new ways.

Self servicing

Maintenance made easy

Normal filter stages get clogged up. Thanks to our desert ready cassettes, trapped debris and lubrication are a thing of the past. With the click of a button and the swipe of a brush - you're done.

Why spend half a day servicing your matte box when you can spend half an hour?

Wider field of view

It’s what we do best

The Strummer is the only matte box that will cover the 14mm Cooke in 3 PV stages. In 6” it will cover a 12mm Master Prime.

Vignettes are a thing of the past.

Strummer DNA

Harder. Better. Faster. Stronger.

With an entirely new architecture and 20% better field of view, Strummer DNA is the ultimate studio matte box.

It’s twice the strength and half the weight, yet retains it's compact form.We've also added more functionality than ever before.

Welcome to the new industry standard.

The best of both

4x5.65 & 6x6

When you need 6” filters you can simply add the 6x6”cassette, and cover an even greater range of lenses.

Why buy 2 matte boxes when you can buy 1?

Click cassettes

An industry first

With a simple click, you can add filter stages in seconds. This patented feature is an industry first. The stages rotate, and you can use round filters in our donuts.

Why buy a whole extra back, when you can just buy single stages?

Lightweight removable flags

30° adjustable wings

Normal side flags can get blocked when you close the top & bottom flags beyond 90°.

DNA flags are outfitted with dual variable blades. Simply close the top and bottom flags and the side flags tuck in between.

Vertical rise

Everything lines up nicely

There are many great new accessories out there, but sometimes things don’t line up.

Our vertical height adjustment system allows you 12.5mm of movement. Meaning whatever accessories you use, your matte box works.
