Solid-state microphone system
Bottle Rocket Stage One: The Stage One Bottle Rocket is a transformerless, solid-state microphone system. Fully compatible with the Bottle Caps, the same interchangeable capsule system used with Blue's Bottle mic can be used for an an array of tonal characteristics and pickup patterns. It comes with Blue's B8 capsule as well as a custom shockmount and wood storage box.
Blimp: The Rode Blimp is a complete windshield and shock mounting accessory, designed to accommodate the NTG-1, NTG-2 and NTG-3 shotgun microphones in addition to the NT4 stereo microphone and most third party shotgun microphones up to 325mm (12-¾") in length. The Blimp's main housing is based on a 10-frequency geodesic dome, with a triangular cross-section that allows the part to be injection-molded in one piece. This geometry creates a high open-area ratio that greatly improves the acoustic transparency while maintaining robustness and physical protection for the microphone. The end-domes can be easily removed by twisting off, allowing easy access to the microphone. An oversize thread allows easy and intuitive reattachment of the domes, avoiding clip systems that are difficult to use and vulnerable to breaking. Inside the dome structure are two infinitely adjustable suspension hoops that allow for superior mounting and shock absorption for a wide range of microphones. Four styles of microphone clip are supplied to allow for maximum compatibility.
Rugged ribbon mic
Delta: Delta has been designed to deliver all the classic tonality of a traditional ribbon microphone with the added reliability and consistency that active electronics offer and rugged build to allow it to be used in live sound applications as well as the studio. Delta's sonic footprint is tailored to sit the mic comfortably in a live mix, while keeping its subject clear and present. Delta's optimized sensitivity and 48V pre-amplified electronics deliver rock-solid audio consistency combined with a significant improvement in signal-to-noise compared with traditional transformer-based ribbon mics.
Portable PA system for Ipod
Transactive Mobile: Transactive Mobile, a mobile, battery-powered PA system with universal dock for an Ipod features a long-lasting, rechargeable battery, as well as sturdy aluminum and wood construction with a portable design, to ensure performances can be taken anywhere. The system comes with a high-efficiency amplifier and four inputs for connecting microphones, instruments or CD/MP3 players. Additionally, any Ipod docked in the Transactive Mobile can be used as a backing track for vocalists or instruments simultaneously plugged into the system.
