OUR PART # BLIMP-II
The RÃDE Blimp is a complete windshield and shock mounting accessory for the NTG1, NTG2 and NTG3 shotgun microphones as well as any third-party shotgun microphone up to 325mm (12.75â) 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.
NOTE: This is the latest version of the RÃDE Blimp. For more information on the first version of the Blimp, please click here.
The RÃDE Blimp's handle has also be completely redesigned, reducing the product weight significantly, while increasing the ergonomics for handheld use. House 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 new Blimp design is over 25% lighter (550gm without microphone or DeadWombat 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.
