Product Description

A high-performance, switchable pattern microphone, the Aston SPIRIT features a 1” gold evaporated capsule. A switch on the mic body selects from Omni, Cardioid or Figure-of-Eight polar patterns. It is versatile enough to use with most instruments and excels on acoustic guitar and vocals. Its hand-selected capsule is teamed with high-end transformer balanced circuitry using only the best components.

The Spirit is designed to deliver a beautifully open sound with sparkling harmonics. This highly accurate microphone gives a stunningly natural and transparent recording, capturing all the detail in the high range but without adding the harshness that some condenser microphones seem to.

Wave-Form Mesh Head
The Aston Origin has a 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 their 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 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. To perfect the look, each microphone is separately engraved with its legends, and the brand mantra… ‘The art of performance’

PCB

  • Superbly balanced mix of discrete and integrated electronic circuitry.
  • Harmonized circuit stage arrangement for easy integration from phantom power input circuitry to capsule voltage bias.
  • A novel non-linear voltage/current source rectification to provide controlled amplification and smooth/ clear audio.
Eco-Friendly Packaging
When it comes to packaging Aston believes simplicity is king. Protective, re-useable, environmentally sensible packaging that doesn’t cost the earth.

You Will Sound Amazing
What is your opinion of this product?
I've recorded on mics from $200-10k at different studios, and to my surprise, this Mic itself, has low noise ratio for background noise, true in sound, warm and its as if it adapts to the color of your tone or technique. You can also adjust the roll off. The only as downside thing is finding the best Shockmount (go with a Rycote Invision) ahem. But that has nothing to do with the mic quality, it's solid and it sounds great with any type pop filter too!

Best Affordable Studio Microphone
What is your opinion of this product?
I was looking for a microphone that could compete with high end studio microphones without breaking the bank. The Aston Spirit was the best choice. Without picking up too much unwanted background noise, this microphone brings out a crisp, clean sound in vocals and can even work well when recording an entire band in a room, drums included. I am very impressed with this microphone and would suggest this over similarly priced brands.
