The first truly British condenser microphone and accessory brand. Conceived, designed, and yes, manufactured… all in the UK!
The Aston team, led by James Young, Philip Smith, Alan Gavin and Jack Munro, have re-invented mic design, taking breathtakingly gorgeous concept pieces, and cutting edge engineering techniques, and producing beautifully crafted works of art.
The Aston Origin and Spirit microphones have been developed working with a listening team of the top producers and mix-engineers in the business, with blind AB tests and focus groups at every stage of R&D meaning that the sound of each of the new microphones has been honed to perfection, not just by the design team, but by the professional users themselves. Mics designed and tested by the professionals who are actually going to use them… now isn’t that a novel idea?
The Aston Origin & Spirit Microphones
The Aston Origin (cardioid) and Spirit (multi-pattern) microphones have a unique design, which provides shock absorption to protect the capsule with elastic mesh memory. It is also has custom moulded end caps with integrated XLR and stand adaptor, so you can mount the microphone directly to a stand; a built in pop filter using the latest stainless steel mesh-knit technology; a 2mm solid stainless steel laser cut and etched body; and the inside of the mic doesn’t look to shabby either:
- Superbly balanced mix of discrete and integrated electronic circuitry
- Harmonised circuit stage arrangement for easy integration from phantom power input circuitry to the capsule voltage bias
- Novel non-linear voltage/current source rectification to provide controlled amplification and smooth/ clear audio output
