Product Description

Aston Microphones pride themselves on being a British brand; both designing and building high quality, hand crafted and affordable microphones in the UK. The Origin is a high performance cardioid condenser microphone using a 1" gold evaporated capsule. This stereo pair set lets you record full rooms, ensembles, and any kind of audio with authentic width and warmth.

It's a workhorse mic that you could stick in front of most instruments. However, it particularly excels on acoustic guitar and vocals. It's built with some of the best components that are usually reserved for expensive boutique microphones. The result is a direct, smooth and intimate sound that's the perfect recipe for a natural and transparent recording.

Everything from first design to final assembly is done in this country. Each mic is handmade by a team of some of the finest engineers and craftsmen in Britain. They're meticulously developed by a team of British engineers with the help and advice from over 30 UK Music industry professionals. Instead of just recreating the tried and tested designs seen on many of todays mics, Aston dare to go against the norm. They push the boundaries of technology and aesthetics to create something completely new from the ground-up.

The results are visually stunning. The Origin Mic may look like a piece of modern art, however visuals are only part of the story. Each element has been carefully produced to create better performance, better durability and better usability.
