- Aston Microphones Starlight Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
- Limited 3-Year Warranty
The Starlight Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone from Aston Microphones is a laser-targeting pencil microphone. It can be used to capture audio, allows for recall of mic positions in the studio, and enables quick setup in live-sound applications.
The Class-2 laser is designed with an on/off switch so that mic positions can be easily replicated on drums and other instruments, making setup a breeze. The Starlight features Aston's variable voice-switching technologies for sound-contouring, and the microphone is built tough with a sintered, metal head, and a tumbled 100% stainless steel chassis. It is powered by 48V phantom power and uses a 20mm cardioid capsule.
The addition of a Class-2 laser with an on/off switch allows you to recall the mic's positions in the studio, and the setup can be easily replicated. For touring bands, mic positions can be marked off on drums and other instruments, making setup a breeze.
Sintered, Metal Head
The metal head is tested for size and combined with a nickel plate, which is a few nanometers in thickness, to achieve acoustic porosity. The head is rugged in build, and can take any amount of studio or live use.
The Starlight has three modes of operation, allowing you to choose between Vintage, Modern, and Hybrid settings to get the right tone response for your applications. Each setting has been carefully tuned to give high-quality performance.
Starlight utilizes a 1.5mm, solid stainless steel chassis, tumbled for up to 4 hours to achieve a signature finish.
Discrete Mic-Amp Circuit (PCB)
This microphone is equipped with high-spec components to provide an extremely sensitive, low-noise design with plenty of headroom. This allows the Starlight to handle quiet or very loud sources without compromising noise or tonal performance.
