Product Description

Details

The Aston Starlight is the first ever laser targeting pencil microphone, allowing for recall of mic position in studio use, and incredibly quick and easy set up in live applications. This truly astonishing microphone also showcases Aston’s unique variable voice switching for sound contouring, a nearly indestructible build quality, Aston's signature sintered head, and now famous, tumbled 100 per cent stainless steel chassis. The Starlight features a 20mm cardioid capsule hand-picked by a panel of more than 50 top producers in double blind listening tests conducted during 2016.

The Aston Starlight utilises a signature wave-form mesh head. As well as supplying an unparalleled level of defence for the heart of the microphone, the capsule, the unique design also looks exceptionally beautiful. Subject to a hard impact, the head of the mic will distort before returning to its ordinary locus, without succumbing damage, thanks to its shock resilient wave-form design. Undesirable artefacts are also removed from your recordings thanks to integrated off-axis rejection.

An exclusive mesh-knit pop filter comes fitted as standard; machined into the wave-form head, as with all Aston condenser microphones. Sound is able to move while virtually eliminating unwelcome plosives at source because of its arbitrary weave. The Aston Starlight is perfect in critically sensitive electronic applications as it also repels various wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation. Rust after extended use is also not a problem because this wholly encapsulating, single piece mesh cage is formed in stainless steel and can be dismantled and washed.
