Rode NTG2 Shotgun Microphone and Rycote Super-Blimp Windshield Kit

Rode NTG2 Overview

Ideal for boompole-mounted operation in film/TV production, broadcast, and sound design applications, this B&H Kit combines the Rode NTG2 battery-/phantom-powered shotgun microphone with a Rycote Super-Blimp NTG windshield—complete with a short RF-shielded XLR and a windjammer—to create a professional-quality mic setup with effective protection from shock, vibration, and extreme wind noise.

Rode NTG2 Shotgun Microphone

Capture quality sound indoors or outside for your next indie film, TV shoot, or documentary project with the Rode NTG2 shotgun microphone. With low handling noise, the ability to endure loud sound sources before distortion, and support for battery or phantom power, the NTG2 offers a versatile, cost-effective solution for recording clean dialogue and sound effects.

The NTG2's elevated sensitivity allows it to produce strong output levels without having to apply extreme gain at your mic preamp. Sonically, the NTG2 delivers consistently clear sound due in part to its gentle rise in high frequencies and its rumble-reducing selectable low-cut filter. The durable and lightweight high-grade aluminum housing is finished in hard-wearing epoxy paint to withstand the stress of location recording.

Quality Sound Capture

The combination of the NTG2's 11" 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 18 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.

Battery or Phantom Powered

Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output and operability with 48V phantom power or a single AA battery, the NTG2 is compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters as well as built-in preamps on cameras and camcorders.

Ideal for Boompole Mounting

The NTG2 includes a mic clip for easy placement on a mic stand or boompole. Alternatively, mount the NTG2 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 NTG2 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).

Rycote Super-Blimp NTG for Shotgun Microphones

The Super-Blimp NTG from Rycote is a complete windshield and shock-mounting system for the Rode NTG series and similar shotgun microphones. The kit provides patented Lyre Technology and a broadcast industry basket to protect against shocks, vibrations, and wind noise—all with acoustic transparency. A Windjammer, designed to slip over the basket, protects against extreme wind noise.

A Rycote 90° Shortie XLR connector is situated inside the basket, complete with an integral RF shield to protect against the kind of dirty audio attributed to radio interference. Furthermore, a boom adapter and pistol grip handle are included with the unit. Releasing the microphone from the basket is easy thanks to its quick-release pods.
