Rode Blimp 2 with Dead Wombat Furry High Wind Jacket
(included in kit)
The Rode Blimp 2 is a complete windshield and shock
mounting accessory for Rode's NTG-Series of
shotgun microphones. It
is also compatible with most third party shotgun microphone up to
325mm in length.
Now featuring the Rycote® Lyre suspension system, the Blimp 2
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’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
highly-flexible thin cable inside the Blimp, to minimise 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 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.

available, further evidenced by a 2009 Red Dot Award and
