The Rode Blimp is a professional windshield and shock mount systems for your RØDE NTG series, and other 3rd party compatible shotgun microphones. The Blimp is designed to help protect your valuable microphone and shield it from unwanted environmental noise, while actively reducing handling noise with the integrated Rycote® Lyre suspension system. A must have for ENG recording, broadcast applications, and more.
The Blimp’s handle has also been completely redesigned, reducing the weight significantly, while increasing the ergonomics for handheld use (without boom). Housed inside the grip is a heavy-duty Mogami cable which splits via a junction box to a highly-flexible thin cable inside the Blimp, to minimise the transference of vibration to the microphone. With the lightweight design of the handle and suspension system the new Blimp design is over 25% lighter.
The Blimp attaches to any standard boompole via 3/8″ thread attachment at the base. The Universal Blimp Mount is available as an option to remove the handle when the Blimp is being used primarily on a boompole to reduce weight. The Dead Wombat windshield, caring brush and tail/patch cable are included. The added confidence of a full ten year warranty* ensures that the Blimp is by far the best microphone windshield system available, further evidenced by a 2009 Red Dot Award and Australian International Design Award for outstanding product design. *Excludes normal wear and tear of Dead Wombat furry cover or any misuse, modification or improper storage and transportation of the product.
