Product Description

Details

The Aston Spirit is a high-performance, switchable pattern, microphone utilising a 1” gold evaporated capsule. 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.

Features

  • Wave-form mesh head – this unique design provides shock absorption to protect  the capsule, with elastic mesh memory
  • Built-in pop filter using the latest stainless steel mesh-knit technology
  • Direct to stand microphone mounting
  • 2mm, solid stainless steel, laser-cut and etched chassis
  • Capsule - The Aston Sound - developed by professional artists, engineers and producers
  • PCB – market-leading electronic design with WIMA capacitors
  • Eco-friendly packaging. No unnecessary frills, just well-designed, re-usable and recyclable packaging
