The Aston Starlight is the first ever laser targeting pencil microphone, allowing for recall of mic position in studio use, and incredibly quick and easy set up in live applications. This truly astonishing microphone also showcases Aston's unique variable voice switching for sound contouring, a nearly indestructible build quality, the signature sintered head, and Aston's, now famous, tumbled 100% stainless steel chassis.

Laser-alignment for placement accuracy and recording recall
The addition of a Class 2 laser to the Starlight SDC, with on/off switch, allows the user to recall mic positions in the studio so set up can be easily replicated. It also means, for touring bands, that mic positions can be marked off on drums etc, and set-up becomes a breeze. It's a world's first and a big leap in helping to get a consistent sound whatever the situation.

Innovative Sintered Metal Head design helps shape acoustic response and provides almost indestructible capsule protection
Sintering is not new to the mic world, though seldom used… but Aston has taken the technology a step or 2 further than ever before. Many thicknesses of sintered heads were tested, as well as the average size of the sinter spheres, and combined that with nickel plate which is controlled to only a few nanometers thickness to achieve near perfect acoustic porosity. In addition, the head is virtually indestructible, so like all Aston mics, it can take any amount of studio or even live use and will never let you down.

3-position voicing switch: Vintage, Modern, and hybrid settings for ultimate flexibility
Yet another remarkable step-up in technology, performance and cool features! The Starlight has 3 modes of operation, courtesy of some very fancy front-end filtering between the capsule and PCB. You can choose between Vintage, Modern and Hybrid settings to get the perfect tone response for your application… guitar cab, drums, strings, even vocals… whatever the application you'll get a perfect fit for your music, and each setting has been carefully tuned to give superb top-flight performance, way beyond Starlight's price point.

Chassis - 1.5mm solid stainless-steel laser cut and etched body
Now deeply rooted as part of Aston's beautiful engineered looks, and rugged un-killable performance, Starlight utilizes a 1.5mm solid stainless-steel chassis, tumbled for up to 4 hours to achieve our signature finish. Beauty, and a beast!

Discrete Mic Amp Circuit (PCB) Market leading electronic design
Starlight employs an extremely fine-tuned discrete mic amp circuit with high-spec components, to achieve an extremely sensitive, low noise design with loads of headroom. This allows the Starlight to handle quiet or very loud sources without compromising noise or tonal performance. Crucially, the higher output level of the Starlight's output stage allows microphone preamps to operate with lower gain, where their distortion performance is at its best. The final result is a beautifully clean and detailed sound. The Starlight's voicing control employs inductive active filters at the front-end of the microphone circuit to alter the response of the capsule without adding any noise to the circuit. The benefit of this means that the voicing switch is effectively the equivalent of changing the capsule to achieve different tonal characteristics and frequency response.
