Aston Spirit Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone
The Aston Spirit is a high-performance, switchable pattern, microphone utilising a 1 inch gold evaporated capsule.
The Spirit is designed to deliver a beautifully open sound with sparkling harmonics. This highly accurate micro- phone gives a stunningly natural and transparent recording, capturing all the detail in the high range but without adding the harshness that some condenser microphones seem to.
A switch on the mic body selects from Omni, Cardioid or Figure-of-Eight polar patterns. 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 balanced circuitry using only the best components such as WIMA capacitors, the same devices you'll find in boutique microphones costing far more than the Spirit.

Aston Halo Shadow Reflection Filter & Portable Vocal Booth
The Aston Halo Shadow offers the same superb performance as the Halo reflection filter, with a new all black finish for those who want a more 'moody' space to work with.
Patented Design, Enhanced Performance
HALO's unique design is also patented… it's much bigger, wraps around top and bottom to a maximum rear depth of almost 100mm to improve room isolation and absorption without dominating the room sound. Its textured and wave-formed surface also helps diffuse direct sound.
Market research revealed that many people have a hard time with getting a good performance when using other reflection filters because they are not very 'creative-friendly' environments. The HALO's form and colour scheme is designed to create a more 'organic-feeling' space for the performer to work with.
The combination of radically improved performance in almost every area of currently available technology, while paying special attention to both the green credentials of manufacturing (as with Aston's mic packaging which is 100% recyclable and 84% recycled material), and to the creative element that the artist requires in their performance environment to get the best form every take, makes, in our opinion, the very best possible solution for portable room acoustics available today.
Hi Tech Construction With Patented PET Felt
The HALO is made from a patented PET felt which is one of the most lightweight and efficient, technical acoustic products available on the global market today, making it ideal for use in a reflection filter.
An additional side benefit is that the acoustic felt which makes up most of the sound absorption field, is made from 70% recycled PET plastic bottle material, so this highly technical product is also very environmentally friendly.
The lightweight material design, coupled with beautifully engineered 'easy-mount' hardware, means the HALO is quick and easy to set up, stable on mic stands, and sounds and looks fantastic.
Aston Rycote Shockmount for Spirit and Origin Microphones
The Aston Rycote Custom is an InVision™ product which makes use of Rycote's patented vibration-resistant Lyre mount.
The Aston Rycote Custom's W-shaped Lyres are placed around a central mounting ring with a single fixing point specifically designed for the Aston Spirit and Origin microphones, allowing for incredibly quick and easy mounting.
Aston chose Rycote as their partner for shock mounts, because not only are they made in the UK, just like Aston mics, but they are indisputably the best mounts on the market today. The Aston Rycote Custom updates the concept of the microphone suspension for the 21st century, completely omitting any elasticated parts and using modern materials to create a virtually indestructible shock-mount with a performance that far outstrips that of the humble 'cat's cradle' suspension. In controlled tests at the Rycote factory, the Custom provided up to twice the isolation of traditional microphone suspension systems.
Finished in Aston colours this Custom mount makes the ideal accessory for use with the Origin and Spirit.
