N.B Shotgun Microphone not included.
The Rode Blimp is the complete windshield and shock mounting system for the NTG series and other shotgun mics up to 325mm in length. Building on the success of the award winning design of the Blimp, This updated model reacts to customer feedback and refines and redesigns the features of the blimp for an even better and more durable product.
Focusing on ease of use, the new blimp is over 25% lighter than the original model. The pistol grip handle has been redesigned to a skeleton, increasing ergonomics and cutting down on weight. The new Blimp now also features the Rycote Lyre suspension system for the ultimate in microphone suspension and isolation. Constructed from lightweight thermoplastic, the Lyre is easier to use and significantly more durable than traditional elastic solutions, and will never wear out, sag or snap from extended use.
Other innovations include the new Blimp pro cable, a highly flexible thin cable that connects from the mic to a junction box inside the pistol grip. This cable ensures vibrations from use are minimised and isolated from the mic for the finest quality recordings and an easier life for the sound engineer! The lighter design also means that attaching to a standard boompole is easier than ever.
The Dead Wombat windshield, caring brush and tail/patch cable are included, and rode offer a full 10 year warranty, showing confidence in the quality of their product.
