Aston Microphones Spirit Black Bundle Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

This studio production set features a highly collectable, black textured version of our flagship condenser mic, the Spirit, plus the best-in-class Aston Swiftshield pop filter and shock mount set – everything you need for high-class recordings of vocals, instruments and most other sound sources.

The Aston Sound

Right from the start of ‘project Aston’, we engaged with some of the top audio professionals in the industry to create a development panel to be our ears, while we focussed on perfecting every tiny detail in our mics, to finally produce what we believe to be the very best products in their class. Read more about The Aston Sound.

Wave-Form Spring Head

The Aston Spirit has our signature wave-form spring 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. 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 drastically 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.

Direct to stand mounting

Yet another unique design element of the Aston Spirit 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

The limited edition Spirit features a unique, beautiful and hard-wearing black texxtured finish on a 2mm solid stainless steel chassis. To perfect the look, each microphone is separately engraved with its legends, and our brand mantra… ‘The Art of Audio’

PCB

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

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.


What's Included

Aston Spirit

The Aston Spirit is a high-performance switchable pattern microphone utilising 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 vocals and acoustic guitar. The capsule, selected by the Aston 33, is paired with high-end transformer balanced circuitry using only the best components.

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 but without adding the harshness of some condenser microphones.

Aston Swiftshield

The Aston SwiftShield combines the Swift shock mount and the Shield pop filter to provide the perfect setup for your Spirit mic. The Aston Swift shock mount takes microphone mounting to the next level of ease. With 2 quick release spring clips designed to fit the Spirit, Origin, and a wide range of other mics from 40-60mm diameter, mounting your microphone takes seconds.

We have reconceived the shock system, and as with all our products 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.

The Spirit represents one of the biggest engineering advancements in the microphone industry in decades.

Nominated for the prestigious NAMM TEC Award in 2017 and universally acclaimed as one of the best mics on the market today at any price, it achieves a level of technical excellence and performance never before seen at this price point.

Spirit 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.
