The Aston Origin is a high-performance cardioid condenser microphone utilising a 1 inch gold evaporated capsule. It's versatile enough to use with any instrument and, for singer-songwriters, excels on acoustic guitar and vocals. Its hand-selected capsule is paired with high-end transformerless circuitry using only the finest components.

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

  • Wave-Form Spring Head - 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.
  • 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 drastically eliminating unwanted plosives at source.
  • Direct to Stand Mounting - Features custom moulded end caps with integrated XLR and universal stand thread adaptor.
  • PCB Circuitry - A superbly balanced mix of discrete and integrated electronic circuitry. Non-linear voltage/current source rectification to provide controlled amplification and smooth/ clear audio output.
