GEAR DISCUSSED : Rycote Windshield Kit 4 … Hardest part is threading the non-standard stereo XLR cable through the pistol grip, but now that we have the whole thing together it works. I use the BLIMP with the NT-4 and the RODE “Deadcat” with the NTG-2. Has anyone had luck modifying the new version of the Rode Blimp (with the rycote lyres) to fit the Rode NT4? I love my NT4 as a traditional drum overhead. It fits the Rode NTG1, NTG2, NTG3, NTG4, NTG4+, NTG5, and any shotgun mic up to 12.75" in length. The one thing about the rode blimp is it's enormous! The Blimp Windshield and Rycote Shock Mount Suspension System from Rode is designed to provide your shotgun microphone with protection from wind noise and isolation from shock and vibration. Cheers, hugh The NT-4 is a bit heavy for the BLIMP but it works. It's fine for me getting atmos when not move the mic (on a stand) but I've sometimes had to swing the nt4 (when recording music on location) and i find it hard not to get the mic to bang off the blimp. It is compact, great sounding, ... We have a couple of NTG-2s that work great, but this new #Rode video mic is amazing - @atfirstsightvid. This is an impressive mic... Good build quality, great to use and excellent audio quality. Agreed, BLIMP … Now featuring the Rycote Lyre suspension system, the Blimp provides the … 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 3/4”) in length. This will no doubt include a blimp for this mic and a shotgun mic I want to eventually get too. The Blimp attaches to any standard boompole with the 3/8" thread attachment at the base. Due to me saving for my next purchase (a Tascam HDP2 I'm thinking) I'm looking to get the proper gear to record outside. Oh, what a beauty. I'm looking into getting a Rode NT4 stereo microphone for sound collection very soon. Might be easier for me to move an nt4 around. This is a short demo of the Rycote Windshield Kit 4 that has been adapted to house a Rode NT4 stereo mic using Rycote's Lyre Cradle system.
