Following the limited-run Black Origin studio production bundles, Aston have announced the Black Spirit Bundle, another strictly limited edition release of only 1,500 individually numbered pieces. This box-set is centered on the multi-pattern, high-performance Spirit mic, which is a go-to with artists including Noel Gallagher, Radiohead, Tory Lanez, Don Broco, Jamie Cullum, Bullet For My Valentine and many other major artists, producers and engineers.

The bundle includes a highly collectable, black-textured version of the Spirit, plus the best-in- class Aston Swiftshield pop filter and shock mount set. You'll have everything you need for high-class recordings of vocals, instruments and most other sound sources.

Aston Spirit

The Aston Spirit is an award-winning, high-performance, switchable pattern condenser microphone utilizing 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 Aston 33 panel selected capsule is teamed with high-end transformer balanced circuitry that uses only the best components.

Nominated for the prestigious NAMM TEC Award in 2016, and holding a host of other international awards, the Aston Spirit is one of the best condenser mics you can own.

The Spirit is designed to deliver a beautifully open sound with sparkling harmonics. This highly accurate microphone gives a stunningly natural and transparent recording, capturing all the detail in the high range without adding the harshness that some condenser microphones seem to.

The mic features Aston’s signature Wave-Form Mesh head, a built in ‘stainless steel wool’ pop filter, direct-to-stand mounting and Aston's tumbled stainless steel chassis. The result is a beautiful and near indestructible performance.

Aston SwiftShield
SwiftShield combines the Aston Swift shock mount and the Aston Shield pop filter into one bundle to give you the perfect setup for your studio vocal mic. The Aston Swift shock mount makes microphone mounting easy. With two quick-release spring clips, designed to fit a wide range of mics from 40-60 mm diameter, mounting your microphone takes seconds.

Aston have reconceived the shock system, and worked from the ground up on an entirely new design idea. The ShockStar suspension eliminates the need for fiddly rubber bands, but offers a high level of elasticity for maximum isolation.
