The Aston Origin has their signature wave-form spring head. This unique design not only looks great, but also 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 Aston product. When it comes to packaging they believe 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 their ears, while they focused on perfecting every tiny detail in their mics, to finally produce what they believe to be the very best products in their class.
SwiftShield combines the Aston Swift shockmount and the Aston Shield pop filter into one bundle to give you the perfect setup for your studio vocal mic. The Aston Swift shockmount takes microphone mounting to the next level of ease. With two quick-release spring clips designed to fit the Origin, and a wide range of other mics, from 40-60 mm diameter, mounting your microphone takes seconds.
Aston have reconceived the shock system, and as with all their products worked from the ground up on an entirely new design idea. The ‘ShockStar’ suspension eliminates the need for fiddly rubber bands, but offers a high level of elasticity for maximum isolation.
