The RODE Blimp is a complete windshield and shock mounting accessory for the NTG-1, NTG-2 and NTG-3 microphones, as well as any third party shotgun microphone up to 325mm (12 3/4") in length. The Rode Blimp uses a dual-hoop, fully adjustable suspension system which greatly reduces handling and wind noise. This quick adjustability is not found on any other models of windscreen and ends the need for different sized mounts for each model of microphone you may use. The included handgrip makes it easy to aim and control on the fly or can adapt to a boompole (3/8") when needed. Included with the system is a Dead Wombat furry windcover that is placed over the Blimp to increase wind attenuation. A tail cable for connecting the microphone is also included. You will not find a better value than this blimp system for location sound. RODE's reputation for quality assures you excellent build quality and true application-oriented design.

*RODE's 10-year warranty covers all components of the Blimp, excluding normal wear and tear of the Dead Wombat furry cover or any misuse, modification or improper storage and transportation of the product.
