The Rode Blimp Extension is an add-on component kit for the original RØDE Blimp windshield system that allows the use of long shotgun microphones, including the RODE NTG8 and any shotgun with barrel length of up to 600mm. The kit includes a 256mm blimp extension piece, two sets of rigid silicone bands, extra long Dead Wombat fur windshield and furry brush.
The RØDE Blimp is a complete windshield and shock mounting accessory for the NTG1, NTG2, NTG3, NTG4 and NTG4+ microphones, as well as any third party shotgun microphone up to 325mm (12 ¾”) 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. The Blimp’s handle has also been completely redesigned, reducing the product weight significantly, while increasing the ergonomics for handheld use.
