Product Documents

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.

The mic has a mesh-knit pop filter built into the wave-form head. The weave allows sound to pass while reducing unwanted plosives. This single-piece mesh cage is formed in stainless steel, so it won't rust with use and can even be removed and washed.

  • Custom-molded end caps with integrated XLR and stand adapter
  • Harmonized circuit-stage arrangement for easy integration from phantom-power input circuitry to capsule voltage bias
  • Non-linear voltage/current-source rectification to provide controlled amplification and smooth/clear audio

48 Volt Phantom power (+/- 4 Volts) is required for operation
