Too Long to work properly with NTG4 on a SM4-R Mount

By Dave
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-12

I bought this item to use with and NTG4 on a SM4-R shock mount.... and as far as wind noise reduction goes, it is great. However, it is simply too long to work well in this configuration. The problem is that the NTG4 is short, so to make the windscreen fit, you have to move the SM4-R Lyres to the center position which then droops and bumps the mount base. The work around is to shorten the WS6 by two inches by removing the end cap, cutting the windscreen, and regluing the end cap. Then you can set the mount's Lyres to the wider position. This works very well.... but is a pain in the backside. A better solution would be to use a shorter windshield. NOTE: on the NTG4+ this is not a problem, nor is it an issue when using the NTG4's supplied mic-clip.... it's only a problem when using the NTG4 on the SM4-R shock-mount.

A must have for Outdoor Recs

This is a great tool to reduce wind noise from being picked up by the microphone. The difference is night and day, if you are going to use it for outdoors. I would still recommend using a blimp for winds that are higher than 5mph and the recorded information is more critical. Why is this? The blimp with a deadcat COMPLETELY isolates the microphone, isolating the entire airspace not just the pickup area. Having the internal mesh is nice because it’s self isolating, not requiring you to have a foam already on. I use this with an NTG4 and it is a must have. Having said that this is a great and inexpensive tool to use for most scenarios that are outdoors. Mission critical, paid work outdoors, get the Blimp w/deadcat.

Service from B&H was excellent but the windscreen does a mediocre job at cutting off wind noise on my ntg4 It blocks all noise in light breeze, but in medium breeze you still get the noise but at a somewhat controlled level. For a windy day tou will need a blimp for sure.

Works for me.

It fit the Rode microphone and helps to reduce or eliminate wind noise. What more can I say.

Good, but won't help in windy outdoor locations

This is a good dead cat for indoors, or for outdoors with little to no wind. If it is windy, it doesn't get the job done; get the Rode blimp for that.

question

Will this be too large for the VideoMic Pro? If so, is there a windshield that would work well for both the VideoMic Pro and the NTG2?
Asked by: Tony
Unfortunately the difference in size between the two mics will not allow you to utilize the same windshield for both the VideoMic Pro and NTG2. This is designed for the NTG 1, 2 and 4 microphones. For the VideoMic Pro the Rycote Windjammer is recommended. See B&H # RYMWRVMPR. Rode also overs a slip over windshield designed for the mic. B&H # RODEADCTVMPR

Does this really come with a 10-year warranty? I have a problem with my WS6 but Rode isn't responding to my message. The rubber base part separated from the foam part which looked like was glued.

Asked by: Cephas
I don't know since I don't have a Deith. It's made for the Rode mics listed. I can tell you I was not impressed with it's performance though. Not worth the money.
