Rode Microphones Microphone Accessories
The most basic and essential accessory for any microphone is a mount. Chances are we won't be seeing anti-gravity microphones any time soon, so putting a studio mic in a proper shockmount is essential. Models like the SM4 Shockmount and the Shockmount for NTK/NT1000/Classic II/NTV are more than just a place for the mic to sit - they also isolate it from noise-causing vibrations coming up through the stand or boom, which means that your sound will always be clear and precise. In some cases, like the PG2 Mic Mount, the design is simpler... but the principle is still the same.
Another factor that can interfere with your recording clarity is air movement. Those can range from small currents inside the studio to all-out windstorms in outdoor sessions. There's no getting away from air, of course, but there is a simple solution: windscreens. Take a look at the Rode Microphones BLIMP Windshield, Large Diaphragm Wind Screen and WS6 Windscreen for just a few examples. Wrapping up your mic in one of these protective screens is an easy and effective way to eliminate popping and wind noises from your recordings.
