On the front of the mic, above the Aston Microphones logo, you’ll find a switch that allows you to select between three polar patterns:
With this selection of polar patterns and the addition of adjustable frequency response, the Aston Spirit is suitable for recording vocals, acoustic guitars and all manner of other instruments.
Meticulous Microphone Research, Design and Development
When it came to the design of the Aston Spirit, the approach was far removed from that of most microphones.
Not content to simply put their own take on an existing concept, Aston Microphones literally started from scratch, analysing every aspect of microphone creation.
Aiming to create the perfect microphone, Aston Microphone assembled a panel of 33 music industry professionals.
This pantheon of experts included record producers who have worked with top level artists such as David Bowie, George Michael, Foo Fighters and Pixies.
Each stage of the development of the Aston Spirit saw Aston conducting double blind tests with various members of their expert panel.
Eliminating hundreds of designs with listening tests that compare the differences between market leading microphones at each price bracket using both male and female vocals as well as an assortment of instruments, Aston developed the Aston Spirit multi-pattern condenser microphone.
At the end of this process, the blind test favourite chosen by the panel was the Aston Spirit.
Beautiful but Simple and Functional Design
Always approaching microphone design in new ways, Aston called in an architect to design the chassis of the Aston Spirit.
Each chassis is custom finished with no mass-produced paint jobs. Every Aston Spirit chassis is individually tumbled for up to 4 hours, resulting in a hard-wearing, beautiful finish.
Beautiful in its simplicity, the Aston Spirit is a no-frills piece of equipment that is focused on delivering incredible performance.
The Aston Difference
Starting with its unique wave-form mesh head, the Aston Spirits’ design not only looks stunning but offers great protection from bumps and knocks. Ideal if you travel from studio to studio or need to take your microphone on tour.
A mesh-knit pop filter is built into the wave-form head, helping to remove unwanted artefacts when recording vocals while removing the need for additional pop filter or other accessories.
Encased inside a shock-resistant chassis is a 1” gold evaporated capsule offering additional off-axis rejection for a cleaner and more reliable signal.
Furthermore, the Aston Spirit microphone features an isolated body which produces no handling noise and doesn’t require a shock mount.
Incredible Accolades for the “Aston Sound”
From when the Aston Spirit was first introduced, it has received critical acclaim around the world.
Aston microphones are favoured by some of the top names in the music industry and beyond, being used by the likes of Kylie Minogue, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Muse, Radiohead, Coldplay and Disney.
Noel Gallagher has been quoted as saying “I f***ing love these mics!”, referring to his beloved Aston mics.
