Description

The RØDE Blimp is a complete windshield and shockmounting accessory for the RØDE NTG-1, NTG2 and NTG3 microphones, as well as any third-party shotgun microphone up to 12-3/4" in length. Now featuring the Rycote Lyre suspension system, the Blimp provides the ultimate in microphone suspension and isolation. Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the Lyre provides superior acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions, and will never wear out, sag or snap. The Blimp handle has also been completely redesigned, reducing the product weight significantly, while increasing the ergonomics for handheld use. 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 minimize the transference of vibration to the microphone.

With the lightweight design of the handle and suspension system, the Blimp design is over 25% lighter (550 g without microphone or Dead Wombat fitted). 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 10-year warranty* ensures that the Blimp is one of 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.
