    Aston Stealth Microphone - NAMM TEC Award Winner!

    Aston Stealth - NAMM TEC Award-winner!

    Winner of ‘Best Microphone’ at the NAMM TEC Awards, the audio and music industry’s most prestigious international awards, Aston Stealth is the only British manufactured microphone ever to achieve this, beating several huge global brands in the process. It was Aston’s third NAMM nomination in the company’s 4 year history.


    Product Description

    The Stealth is the latest stunning display of microphone innovation from UK manufacturers Aston. Relative newcomers to the microphone field, Aston made waves with their Spirit, Origin and Starlight microphones. With the Stealth, they combined their expertise with extensive testing involving over 90 of the world’s top producers, artists and engineers. The result is a 4-voice microphone with a built-in mic pre that's truly breath-taking.

    Key Features

    • Cardioid Studio and Live mic
    • 4 switchable voices for ultimate versatility
    • Broadcast quality sound in any context
    • Built-in Class A mic pre for a gain lift
    • Automatic phantom power detection for passive or active systems (world first!)
    • Unique Sorbothane internal shock mount system
    • Slick black finish with purple LEDs for subtle, modern aesthetic
    • Legendary Aston build quality
    • Designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK

    Versatile Microphone For Every Application

    The Stealth is a broadcast quality microphone that’s designed not only for studio use, but for live too. It has 4 switchable voices to ensure that it suits any application: male and female vocals, guitars and dark-sounding instruments.

    A built-in Class-A Mic Pre ensures a hefty gain lift when used with 48V phantom power. The Stealth provides balanced, crystal-clear sound without the need for any external signal boost or mic preamp. This is due in part to the fact that it was designed and thoroughly tested with Aston’s 33 test panel, comprised of some of the most reputable producers and artists in the business.

    Finally, as with their Origin and Spirit microphones, the Stealth features built-in shock absorption. In this case, it’s achieved by a unique Sorbothane internal shock mount system. This polymer has been specifically designed for shock absorption, making it pretty much the best material in the business for this purpose – nothing else comes close!

    Reviews & Awards

    • NAMM 2020 TEC Awards - nominated & won in the 'Microphones & Sound Reinforcement' category
    • "Reviewing the Stealth has been no small task – it’s virtually 4 mics in 1. The four modes offer a ton of flexibility in finding the right sound for your source... it is a very versatile microphone with truly unique features. I might go as far as to say that if I was stuck on a desert island with one microphone, this might be it. It’s got gain, it’s got character, and it just looks cool!" - Tape Op Magazine
    • “It sounds great, offers groundbreaking features and can handle almost any assignment under the sun.” - Pro Sound News

    I have Aston spirit but for some sources it’s sensitivity to background and reflection means not getting best mix. Having switchable choices on stealth is great as I use on acoustic electric and voice. Also phantom power gives a good emulation of sm7 without need for cloudlifter boost. Less air and clear highs on dynamic mic as expected but recorded a vocal that sounds like it came from professional studio without any room treatment so would recommend this.

    EXCELLENT mic. The gain boost delivered by the onboard preamp means that interface noise is essentially a thing of the past as you can record in at very low levels on the interface.

    Only used it a few times. Works well on vocals with and without phantom power which was what I was looking for. Have not had a chance to use properly in a live situation yet but am hoping it is a good replacement for my Shure mic. I got some money off via the loyalty points as well
