Has anyone had luck modifying the newest version of the Rode Blimp (with the Rycote lyres) to fit the Rode NT4? I’m trying to find a windshield solution that won’t cost more than the mic 😐
Based on the pictures, it seems like it should be easy to simply unscrew the factory lyres and replace them with the 30mm upgrade sold by Rycote (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/629616-REG/Rycote_042218_042218_30mm_Lyre_Upgrade.html/mode/edu).
I’d love to hear if anyone has any other ideas or knows if my solution will work or not. Thanks!
Rode is aware of this issue, I just dealt with the same thing a few months ago. I gave them a call and talked with them about it – the solution is getting the mounting system from the old blimp and installing it in the new one. The mounting brackets are interchangeable so you will then have the choice of using the new lyre system or using the older system when you need to mount an NT4. They sent me the old mounting system free of charge.
