 What is it?A range of heavy-duty windshields intended for location work with Rode microphones. DetailsRØDE windshields are manufactured from long-stranded synthetic fur with zip fasteners and are designed to minimise wind noise in demanding outdoor environments while remaining acoustically transparent. Versions include the DeadCat, DeadCat VMP, DeadKitten, DeadWombat, WS6 and WS7. The original DeadCat is designed for use with NTG-1, NTG-2 and NTG-3 models. It weighs 200 grams and is approximately 22cm x 3cm x 13cm in size. The VMP version is similar, overall, but tailored to fit the RØDE VideoMic Pro. For the Stereo VideoMic or NT4 mic (with foam WS4 windshield already fitted), the DeadKitten is available, while for the Blimp, RØDE produce the larger DeadWombat. 
 The WS6 and larger WS7 are both deluxe models for use in adverse weather conditions. The WS6 is designed for NTG-1 and NTG-2 models - or any shotgun microphone with a maximum slot length of 160.5mm and diameter of 21mm-22.5mm. The WS7 is suitable for use with the NTG-3 or shotgun mics up to 186.5mm in length and 19mm - 20mm diameter.
