Aston Origin

The Aston Origin is a high-performance cardioid condenser microphone utilising a one inch (1") gold evaporated capsule. 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-less circuitry using only the best components.

The Origin is designed to deliver direct, smooth and intimate sound… for a natural and transparent recording.

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’

Ik heb de microfoon tot nu toe voor akoestische gitaar en voor stem (bariton) uitgeprobeerd. Ik ben zeer tevreden over beiden. De microfoon laat de complexiteit van het laag van de gitaar mooi horen, iets wat soms nog weleens een probleem vormt. De microfoon laat ook mijn stem goed tot z'n recht komen en is dus ook geschikt voor mannen met een wat lagere stem. Maar tegelijkertijd is de menselijke stem zo uniek dat je de microfoon het beste even kort kan testen voor je hem definitief koopt. Dan hoor je direct of bij jouw specifieke stem past. Ik ben in elk geval erg tevreden.

De Origin stelt niet teleur na het lezen van alle positieve reviews en het in gebruik nemen. Kwaliteit voor een goede prijs.
