AST-SPIRIT

Aston Spirit Large Diaphragm Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone

2 IN STOCK

Designed and manufactured in the UK, the Aston Spirit is a versatile multi-pattern large diaphragm condenser microphone. Innovative aspects of the design include a built-in pop-shield, and internally suspended capsule; eliminating the necessity of a shock-mount for normal studio use.  WithOmni, Cardioid or Figure-of-Eight polar patterns, the Sprit is versatile enough to use with most instruments, and excels on acoustic guitar and vocals. HEAR the Aston Spirit in action up against a Vintage Neumann U87 and Audio-Technica AT5050!


    • ASTON SPIRIT PRODUCT FEATURES:

      Wave-Form Mesh Head
      The Aston Origin has our signature wave-form mesh head. This unique design not only looks great, but delivers an unprecedented degree of protection for the heart of your microphone, the capsule. The shock resistant wave-form design allows the head of the mic to distort if given a heavy knock, and then return to its normal position, without any damage at all. It also offers a degree of off-axis rejection, helping to eliminate unwanted artefacts from your recordings.

      Built In Pop Filter

      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.

      End Caps

      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.

      Chassis

      Part of the beauty of our 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. To perfect the look, each microphone is separately engraved with its legends, and our brand mantra… ‘The art of performance’

      Eco-Friendly Packaging

      We have put our hearts and minds into creating the most beautiful performance pieces possible with each Aston product. When it comes to packaging we believe simplicity is king. Protective, re-useable, environmentally sensible packaging that doesn’t cost the earth.
