Designed as a complete microphone setup for location recording in film work, broadcasting, electronic news gathering (ENG), and field production applications with HDSLRs and camcorders, this B&H Kit eliminates the guesswork in configuring a shotgun microphone system that delivers warm, natural tone, switchable audio settings, and low handling noise. It features the Rode NTG4+ battery-/phantom-powered shotgun microphone, a deluxe windshield, a universal shoe/pole shockmount, a pistol grip, an aluminum cabled boompole, a boompole bag, a short XLR cable, and a short XLR to 3.5mm cable to provide you with everything necessary for capturing audio for video, film, and sound design applications.

Rode NTG4+ Shotgun Microphone

Customize your tone and capture quality sound indoors or outside for your next indie film, TV shoot, or documentary project with the Rode NTG4+ battery- or phantom-powered shotgun microphone. Specialized features such as low-noise circuitry, digitally switchable pad and frequency settings, and minimal handling noise reduce the need to repair and restore audio in post production.

The elevated sensitivity of the NTG4+ allows it to produce strong output levels without having to apply extreme gain at your mic preamp. Sonically, the NTG4+ delivers warm sound due in part to its gentle dip in high frequencies and its rumble-reducing selectable low-cut filter. A switchable treble boost is on hand for situations where additional clarity is needed.

Quality Sound Capture
The combination of the 10.9" long body and supercardioid polar pattern yields focused front-facing directionality and enhanced attenuation of sound entering from the sides. Its low self-noise of 16 dBA and sensitive condenser element communicate detailed audio unburdened by the hiss that plagues many low-cost microphones. Plus, its balanced output allows longer cable runs than most camera-mount shotgun microphones.
Internal Battery or Phantom Powered
Operate the NTG4+ on 48V phantom power or via its internal rechargeable lithium battery, which provides up to 150 hours of run time. The micro-USB port and supplied USB cable enable easy recharging in just two hours—charge the NTG4+ via a computer, power brick, or vehicle. Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output, the NTG4+ is compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters as well as built-in preamps on many camcorders and cinema cameras.
Customizable Tone via Digital Switching
Digital switching not only allows for intuitive access to the mic's settings, but it also retains their states when the mic is switched off. Activate the 75 Hz low-cut filter to reduce low-frequency noise from common sources such as air conditioners and traffic. Use the +6 dB treble boost for enhanced clarity and intelligibility (best for environments with minimal high-frequency ambient noise). When loud sound sources threaten to distort your recording, switch on the -10 dB pad to attenuate the input level.
Ideal for Boompole Mounting
The lightweight, metal-bodied NTG4+ includes a mic clip for easy placement on a mic stand or boompole. Alternatively, mount the NTG4+ in the Rode SM4-R shockmount or Rode PG2-R pistol grip (both available separately) to impede the transfer of vibrations in boompole or handheld applications.
Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise
The NTG4+ has a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners. For maximum reduction of handling noise and wind noise in indoor or outdoor environments, consider the Rode Blimp furry windshield and shockmount suspension system (available separately).

Auray DUSM-1 Universal Shockmount for Camera Shoes and Boompoles

The Auray DUSM-1 Universal Shockmount features a four-point suspension to accommodate shotgun and other cylindrical microphones measuring 0.74-0.98" (19-25mm) in diameter. The shockmount is easily angled with its rubberized adjustment knob. There is a built-in shoe for camera mounting, and a 3/8"-16 thread connection at the base mounts the shockmount to boompoles and universal handgrips.

Auray BP-47A Aluminum Boompole with Internal Coiled Cable and Bottom Exit (7.5')
The Auray BP-47A is a 4-section, aluminum boompole that combines an anti-twist tube design with ergonomic twist locks to offer smooth telescoping and hassle-free, one-handed operation—great for adjusting the length quickly, on the fly when filming documentary, ENG, or reality-style videos. The boompole has a collapsed length of 2.5', an extended length of 7.5', and weighs only 1.6 lb. The sections are made of lightweight aluminum tubes designed for portability and durability.

An internal, coiled cable with a side-exit XLR connector makes it easy to extend or retract the boompole while streamlining your setup with fewer cables to carry. The custom, removable head tip and drop-through design allow for cable reconfiguration without any soldering required. High-quality Rean and Neutrik connectors are used for reliable signal transfer and uncompromised performance, even in challenging environments.

Durable Aluminum Construction

  • The durable anodized aluminum construction can handle the bumps and impacts of demanding travel and location shoots in all kinds of weather.

Solid Grip and Smooth Telescoping

  • The ergonomic twist locks are covered with rubber grips that are easy on your hands and comfortable to operate, making length adjustment smooth and effortless. Improved shims ensure a firm and secure hold until you loosen the locks.

Anti-Twist Alignment Tubing for One-Handed Operation

  • Quick length adjustment when you're recording on the go is crucial for keeping from interrupting the shoot. With an anti-twist design, adjacent tubes won't twist when you're expanding or retracting the boompole. This allows for one-handed twist lock operation and makes setup and length adjustment fast and easy.

 

Internal, Coiled Cable with Strain Relief

  • The integrated, coiled XLR cable is engineered to minimize unwanted radio frequency (RF) and electromagnetic (EM) interference that can degrade the audio signal. The coiled design allows the cable to smoothly extend and retract with the telescoping tubes.
  • The tip's strain-relief system absorbs tension, secures the cable, and protects the cable from damage at the edges of the tip exit. Additional strain relief at the bottom of the pole protects and preserves the connections between the cable and the TA3 connector.

Bottom-Exit Connector 

  • With a right-angle XLR cable plugged into the bottom-exit connector, the operator can rest the pole on its end without damaging the wiring or connector.
Removable Arrowhead Tip for Solderless Cable Replacement

  • BP Series boompoles feature a removable Arrowhead tip designed to reduce weight at the top of the pole.
  • The tip also allows easy drop-through cable insertion for quick and uncomplicated cable replacement.
  • Thanks to the solderless design, you won't need special tools to replace the XLR cable using the cable replacement kit (available separately).
High-Quality XLR Connectors 

  • The internal cable is equipped with high-quality XLR and TA3 (mini XLR) connectors manufactured by Rean. The connectors ensure flawless signal transfer and secure locking connections, preventing the cable from disconnecting, even if there's stress or an accidental tug on the cable.
  • The Neutrik bottom-exit connector is housed in its own casing and ensures a secure connection to the boompole that won't jeopardize signal flow by twisting or jiggling.

Standard 3/8"-16 Threaded Mount

  • The boompole is outfitted with a standard 3/8"-16 threaded mount to ensure compatibility with most professional shotgun mics and shockmounts.

The bag is built with an interior pocket for accessories that opens or closes with hook and loop fasteners. An adjustable shoulder strap is included with a nametag holder.

UPC: 847628562790
Auray Universal Microphone Pistol Grip

The Auray Universal Microphone Pistol Grip is a handheld grip that features an ergonomic cushioned handle. This grip is great in "run & gun" situations in which a boom pole would be cumbersome, and in video scenarios in which the cameraman is also responsible for audio recording. The grip can be held with one hand, as opposed to a boom pole which requires two. It also provides the option of being able to record audio from a different direction than the camera is pointing, an advantage over camera mounting the mic. Furthermore, having the mic mounted off the camera prevents it from picking up motor noise from the lens focusing.

In addition, the grip features standard 3/8" threads on both ends. This allows you to attach your shotgun mic (with shockmount) to one end of the grip and mount the other end to a boom pole. This gives you the flexibility of being able to quickly detach the pistol grip and the attached shotgun mic from the boom, an option that can come in handy for entering areas that are too small for a boom pole.

Rode NTG4+ Reviews

AWESOME Product

This microphone works well indoor or outdoor.

Great Audio/poor Battery

By Zacharias
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2021-08-08

I bought this for some training videos for my company, and was super excited about it after all the reviews I read. It is definitely top notch audio, but the rechargeable battery in the NGT4 doesn't work. It will only turn on through phantom power, which is disappointing because i bought it for that. I had already filled out the warranty card so I couldn't return to B&H. Rode wasn't much help either. I can submit for warranty but I really need this for production. Overall great products, just make sure the battery works before setting up the warranty info.

I am impressed with the quality of this mic. It sounds great and has what seems like a nicely secure xlr connection. I think it's great that it holds such a long charge. No more 9volts! Also noticed a lot more dynamic range in this mic vs the entry level Rode mics.

Great Mic; watch for this issue w/BMPCC4K

Date: 2021-04-02

This mic sounds incredible. I am very, very happy with it. Use it for interview style videos. If issue while using BMPCC4K, try powering cam and mic off, unplugging, and let set for 5 or more mins. Worked for me when gain controls wouldn't work, and when sound was extremely low or not present at all.

Quality sound for the price

Great microphone...Rode quality product. Have used it in three productions since it arrived. Good sound. The reason I only gave it four stars instead of five was the charging cable for the internal battery was defective on arrival and I had to purchase another one to initially charge it fully for the first use.

Asked by: ALICIA
Estimated life with regular use and recharging is estimated to be in excess of 10 years. The battery would be replaced by RODE (it is not DIY). Storage is not a problem at all. Just turn off the power . This mic, including the internal battery, is warranted for 10 years (following registration)
