Aston Microphones Origin
The Aston Microphones Origin is a cardioid condenser microphone that utilizes a 1” gold-evaporated capsule. It is versatile enough to use with most instruments, such as acoustic guitar and strings, and sounds great on vocals. Its hand-selected capsule is combined with transformer-less circuitry to deliver accurate sound reproduction.
The mic has a mesh-knit pop filter built into the wave-form head. The weave allows sound to pass while reducing unwanted plosives. This single-piece mesh cage is formed in stainless steel, so it won’t rust with use and can even be removed and washed.
Custom-molded end caps with integrated XLR and stand adapter
Harmonized circuit-stage arrangement for easy integration from phantom-power input circuitry to capsule voltage bias
Non-linear voltage/current-source rectification to provide controlled amplification and smooth/clear audio
