Aston Origin Microphone

The Aston Origin is a high-performance cardioid condenser microphone utilising a one inch (1″) gold evaporated capsule. Versatile enough to use with most instruments and 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.

The Aston Origin features the Aston's signature wave-from mesh head. The unique design does not only look great, but also delivers a unprecedented degree of protection to the capsule, the heart of the microphone. The wave-form is also shock-resistant allowing the mic head to distort if knocked heavily. It also offers a degree if off-axis rejection, that helps eliminate unwanted sounds from your recordings.

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 noise or sounds at source. It also shields against multiple wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation making our microphones ideal in critically sensitive electronic applications. The mesh cage is formed in stainless steel, so won’t rust with use, and can even be removed and washed.

In addition to its unique design element of the Aston Origin, is the use of custom moulded end caps with integrated XLR and stand adaptor. You can mount the microphone directly to a stand via this built in, and interchangeable thread adapter.

Each chassis is custom finished and individually tumbled for up to 4 hours to give it a very hard-wearing, and extremely beautiful look.

-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.
