Wave-Form Spring Head
The Aston Origin has the signature wave-form spring 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. It also offers a degree of off-axis rejection, helping to eliminate unwanted artefacts from your recordings.
- A 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
Aston have put their hearts and minds into creating the most beautiful performance pieces possible with each product. When it comes to packaging, simplicity is king. Protective, re-useable, environmentally sensible packaging that doesn’t cost the earth.
The Aston Sound
Right from the start of ‘project Aston’, they engaged with some of the top audio professionals in the industry to create a development panel to be our ears, while Aston focused on perfecting every tiny detail in their mics, to finally produce what they believe to be the very best products in their class.
