This microphone does not include a microphone holder. We suggest the Aston Rycote Custom Shockmount ASRYCOTEX.

The Aston Origin is a high-performance cardioid condenser microphone utilizing 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.

Wave-Form Spring Head
The Aston Origin has a signature wave-form spring head only found on Aston Microphones. 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.

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 drastically eliminating unwanted plosives at source. It also shields against multiple wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation making Aston 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.

Direct to stand mounting
Yet another unique design element of the Aston Origin is the use of custom molded end caps with integrated XLR and universal stand thread adaptor. Because, the internal shock absorption system is so good, you can mount the microphone directly to a stand via the built in thread and interchangeable thread adapter with outstandingly low handling noise. This design also makes Aston Microphones extremely easy to repair and maintain.

Chassis
Part of the beauty of Aston 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, extremely beautiful, finish. To perfect the look, each microphone is separately engraved with its legends, and our brand mantra… 'The Art of Audio'

  • A superbly balanced mix of discrete and integrated electronic circuitry
