The Blimp’s handle has also been completely redesigned, reducing the product weight significantly, while increasing the ergonomics for handheld use. Housed inside the grip is a heavy-duty Mogami cable which splits via a junction box to a highly-flexible thin cable inside the Blimp, to minimise the transference of vibration to the microphone.
With the lightweight design of the handle and suspension system the new Blimp design is over 25% lighter (550gm without microphone or Dead Wombat fitted).
The Blimp attaches to any standard boompole via 3/8″ thread attachment at the base. The Universal Blimp Mount is available as an option to remove the handle when the Blimp is being used primarily on a boompole to reduce weight.
