The NTG-3 is the result of years of development by RÃ˜DE engineers, providing the professional broadcast and film industries with an affordable yet uncompromising microphone.
Using a technology known as RF-bias the RÃ˜DE NTG-3 is almost completely resistant to moisture, making it the only option when recording in any demanding environments where condensation is an issue.
In addition to its robust properties the NTG-3 combines very low weight (163g), a durable anti-glare finish and incredibly low handling and self-noise (13dBA) to become RÃ˜DEâ€™s premier A/V microphone.
When not in use the NTG-3 can be stored away in the included weather resistant aluminium storage cylinder, providing additional protection when travelling and storing the microphone.
RÃ˜DE Microphones releases the Blimp, an all new suspension windshield for use with professional shotgun microphones.
The new RÃ˜DE Blimp is a complete windshield and shock mounting accessory, designed to accommodate the RÃ˜DE NTG-1, NTG-2 and NTG-3 shotgun microphones in addition to the NT4 stereo microphone and most third party shotgun microphones up to 325mm (12 ¾â€) in length.
â€œDuring the design of the RÃ˜DE Blimp we continually focussed on adding tangible performance benefits for the user.â€ explained the RÃ˜DE Blimpâ€™s Lead Industrial Designer, Matthew Hall. â€œNone of the features unique to the Blimp were incorporated without careful analysis and consideration for their purpose. We took great care to ensure all elements worked cohesively and were integrated into the overall design in a manner to provide the best possible windshield product on the market today.â€
The Blimpâ€™s main housing is based on a 10 frequency geodesic dome, with a triangular cross-section that allows the part to be injection-moulded in one piece. This geometry creates a high open-area ratio that greatly improves the acoustic transparency over existing solutions, yet an unparalleled level of robustness and physical protection for the microphone. The end-domes can be easily removed by twisting off, allowing easy access to the microphone. An oversize thread allows easy and intuitive re-attachment of the domes, avoiding clip systems that are difficult to use and vulnerable to breaking.
A high quality â€˜Dead Wombatâ€™ synthetic fur cover and brush is supplied for additional wind protection in extreme environments.
