    I got my ntg-3 in the mail today and my K-Tek K-Mount is too big for it. So my question is:

    What shock mount should I get? I already have the blimp on the way too.

    My current idea is this:

    Any other mounts worth considering that will fit the ntg-3 (diameter of 19mm)

    The blimp should have a shock mount that can be used with or without the blimp.

    Yes, the blimp has a very nice shock mount.

    I am a few days behind you on ordering this mic. I placed my order today on the NTG-3 and sent in the serial # for the blimp. Should get the NTG-3 Thursday.Rode said it would take 6-12 weeks for delivery on the Blimp. Could you keep me updated as to when you get yours. I hope it doesn't take that long. Thanks for all the posts about the NTG-3. I feel like I got a good deal and liked getting the boom pole and Blimp in the deal. JB

    I ordered my Rode blimp on 14-Dec-09 and it arrived 11 days later (shipped from California).

    While the blimp will come with a mount, if you need another one to use besides that one for some reason the Rycote InVision series (use #7 for the NTG3) is superb and cheaper than the one you linked to by more than a third.

    I ordered the NTG-3 as well, I am going to pick up either the Oktava MK012A or the AKG SE300B/CK93. Do I need to get an additional shock mount or can I just use the blimp's mount all around?
