I would highly recommend PMT. I visited the shop with my son to get his first guitar and amp. The staff were very helpful, particularly Baz and Alex. They have a huge selection of guitars etc from which to choose and a really great atmosphere there too.As a guitarist myself I was just pleased that I managed to get out of the shop without a new guitar under my arm for me! I was sorely tempted; guitar heaven!

Overview

The Aston Spirit is a product of 100% British research, development, design and manufacturing, setting a new benchmark for studio microphone brands to follow.

Studio-grade condenser microphone with multi-pattern pickup and low-cut switches

When Aston Microphones went about their design for the Spirit, their aim was to produce a microphone with a unique set of features, aesthetics and unrivalled signal-to-noise performance.

Starting at the unique wave-form mesh head, the Spirits' design not only looks stunning, but offers additional protection against bumps and knocks - peace of mind for the mobile engineer using the microphone from studio-to-studio. The capsule is encased inside a shock-resistant chassis, while offering additional off-axis rejection for a cleaner, more reliable signal. A mesh-knit pop filter is built into the wave-form head, once again serving to remove any unwanted artifacts from vocal takes and removing the need for additional filters or accessories.

The Spirit also features a multiple Polar Pickup pattern switch, so you can tailor the performance of the capsule to multiple recording applications. Whether you are recording vocals, guitars or any acoustic instrument, the Aston Spirit offers performance at a price that won't break the bank.

Yet another unique design element of the Aston Spirit, 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.

Part of the beauty of Aston microphones is the custom finish of each chassis. There are no mass-produced paint job finishes here… instead, each chassis is individually tumbled for up to 4 hours to give it a very hard-wearing, and extremely beautiful, finish.
