Overview

Designed, built and distributed in the UK, Aston Microphones represent a whole new level of British craftsmanship for studio quality microphones.

Studio-grade condenser microphone with integrated mesh head pop filter and high quality electronic components

Built to handle the varying acoustic environments of home and project studios, the Aston Origin utilises a 1" gold evaporated capsule and transformer-less electronic circuitry to deliver unparalleled response and clarity. The resulting sound is smooth, transparent and intimate, perfect for capturing vocal performance, acoustic guitar and any instruments regardless of your acoustic treatment and room design.

The Aston Microphones signature waveform mesh head is a radical new design when compared to other condenser mics on the market. Not only does it offer a considerable level of capsule protection, but it serves as an off-axis filter so the clears up the clarity and noise in your recordings, without the need for additional processing in the mix. Aston’s vocal condenser microphones have an exclusive mesh-knit pop filter built into the wave-form head. The random weave allows sound to pass while virtually eliminating unwanted plosives at source. It also shields against multiple wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation making our microphones ideal in critically sensitive electronic applications. This completely encapsulating, single piece, mesh cage is formed in stainless steel, so won’t rust with use, and can even be removed and washed.
 
Yet another unique design element of the Aston Origin, is the use of custom moulded end caps with integrated XLR and stand adaptor. No other mic has this. Because the internal shock absorption system is so good, you can mount the microphone directly to a stand via this built in, and interchangeable thread adapter. The design also makes Aston microphones extremely easy to repair and maintain.

Another aspect of the Aston Origin that sets it apart from the competition is the hard-wearing, elegant 'steel' finish. Each chassis is individually tumbled for around 4 hours to give it a 'buffed' vintage vibe and helps prevent unwanted scratches and marks.
