Aston mics are a new UK mic manufacturer who's mics not only look different but redefine how condenser mics sound and cost.
Each mic is made to the most exacting standards being individually tested at each key stage of manufacture to ensure a reliable and consistent performance and the most musical sound capture possible.
Aston Mics have been voiced and tuned following extensive blind listening tests by a panel of 33 of the the most well respected names in the UK recording industry. Only when an overwhelming consensus for one particular mic and electronics combination was way out in front of other prototypes and competitor mics were the final designs approved.
Some of the unique features.
* Wave form mesh head provides shock absorption to protect the capsule and off axis rejection
* Built in Stainless steel open weave mesh pop filter than can be removed for cleaning.
* Direct stand mount
* 2mm stainless steel body with custom rumble finish. No two mics look alike.
* Hi Spec PCB and components
The Aston Origin is a high performance cardioid condenser mic with a 1" gold evaporated capsule. Its versatile enough for most instruments but excels on vocals and acoustic guitar.
The hand selected capsule is teamed with hi end transformer-less circuitry using the highest quality components. Origin is designed to deliver direct, smooth and intimate sound for a natural and transparent recording.
The Origin is the cornerstone of the Aston brand, their first mic, and a global best seller. Simple, but incredibly well engineered, and perfect for everyone from budding singer-songwriters to seasoned industry pros. The Origin’s sound can be best described as ‘forgiving’… it doesn’t flatter to deceive but its ultra-smooth and pure sound, while rich with detail, will not overload with harmonics and leave you reaching for the EQ. It sounds, well, just like you do.
If you’re looking for a really, REALLY good all-rounder, which will make your playing, or your singing, sound incredibly natural and true and easy to manage in the mix, then the Origin is the mic for you.
“Blind testing with the artist against an AKG C12 VR showed a clear preference for the Origin.” - 10/10 Award, Mike Hillier, MusicTech Magazine
