The Rode Blimp is a complete windshield and shock mounting accessory for the NTG1, NTG2 and NTG3 microphones, as well as any third party shotgun microphone up to 325mm (12-1/4") in length. It now features the Rycote Lyre suspension system. Constructed from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic, the Lyre provides acoustic suspension to traditional elastic solutions, and will never wear out, sag or snap. The Blimp's 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 flexible, thin cable inside the Blimp, to minimize the transference of vibration to the microphone.
