Aston Microphones Origin

High Performance, Large Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone

The Origin, from Aston, is a high-performance cardioid condenser microphone utilising a one inch gold evaporated capsule.

It's versatile enough to use with any instrument and, for singer-songwriters, excels on acoustic guitar and vocals.

Each Aston Origin features a hand-selected capsule, and is teamed with high-end transformer-less circuitry using only the best components - such as WIMA capacitors - the same devices you’ll find in boutique microphones costing far more than the Origin.

The Origin is designed to deliver direct, smooth and intimate sound… for a supremely natural and transparent recording.

Features:

  • Superbly balanced mix of discrete and integrated electronic circuitry
  • Harmonised circuit stage arrangement for easy integration from phantom power input circuitry to capsule voltage bias
  • A novel non-linear voltage/current source rectification to provide controlled amplification and smooth/ clear audio

Wave-Form Mesh Head

The Aston Origin has our signature wave-form mesh head. This unique design not only looks great, but delivers an unprecedented degree of protection for the heart of your microphone, the capsule.

The shock resistant wave-form design allows the head of the mic to distort if given a heavy knock, and then return to its normal position, without any damage at all.

It also offers a degree of off-axis rejection, helping to eliminate unwanted artefacts from your recordings.

Built In Pop Filter

Aston’s vocal condenser microphones have an exclusive mesh-knit pop filter built into the wave-form head. The random weave allows sound to pass while virtually eliminating unwanted plosives at source.

It also shields against multiple wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation making our microphones ideal in critically sensitive electronic applications.

This completely encapsulating, single piece, mesh cage is formed in stainless steel, so won’t rust with use, and can even be removed and washed.

End Caps

Yet another unique design element of the Aston Origin is the use of custom moulded end caps with integrated XLR and universal stand thread adaptor.

Because the internal shock absorption system is so good, you can mount the microphone directly to a stand via this built in thread and interchangeable thread adapter with outstandingly low handling noise.

The design also makes Aston microphones extremely easy to repair and maintain.

Chassis

Part of the beauty of our microphones is the custom finish of each chassis.

There are no mass-produced paint job finishes here… instead, each chassis is individually tumbled for up to 4 hours to give it a very hard-wearing, extremely beautiful, finish.

To perfect the look, each microphone is separately engraved with its legends, and our brand mantra… ‘The Art of Audio’

Eco-Friendly Packaging

We have put our hearts and minds into creating the most beautiful performance pieces possible with each Aston product. When it comes to packaging, we believe simplicity is king.

Protective, re-useable, environmentally sensible packaging that doesn’t cost the earth.
