The Aston Origin is a high-performance cardioid condenser utilizing a 1 in. gold-evaporated capsule. Its hand-selected capsule is teamed with high-end transformerless circuitry using only the best components, the same ones you’ll find in boutique microphones costing far more. Origin is versatile enough to use with most instruments and excels on acoustic guitar and vocals.
Wave-Form Mesh Head
The Origin features Aston’s signature waveform mesh head. This unique design delivers an unprecedented degree of protection for the mic capsule. Its shock-resistant waveform design allows the head of the mic to bend upon impact, and then return to its normal position without any damage to the capsule itself. It also offers a degree of off-axis rejection, helping to eliminate unwanted artifacts from your recordings.
Built-In Pop Filter
Aston’s vocal condenser microphones have an exclusive mesh-knit pop filter built into the waveform head. The random weave allows sound to pass while virtually eliminating unwanted plosives at the source. It also shields against multiple wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation, making it ideal in 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.
Yet another unique design element of the Aston Origin is the use of custom-molded end caps with integrated XLR and stand adaptor. Because the internal shock absorption system is so good, you can mount the microphone directly to a stand via this built-in, interchangeable thread adapter. The design also makes Aston microphones easy to repair and maintain.
Part of the four hours to give it a very hard-wearing, and extremely beautiful, finish. To perfect the look, each microphone is separately engraved with its legends, and the Aston brand mantra, “The art of performance.”
