Aston Microphones launch Aston Starlight and Aston Halo Shadow

Jan 19, 2017 | News, Pro Audio Products

Aston Microphones has already proved that not only can a British team design some of the best microphones in the world, but they can build them in the UK and make them affordable for everyone too. Within the space of the company’s first year, the Aston brand has found global success from Europe, the USA to Japan and beyond and the Aston Origin (Cardioid LDC) and Spirit (Multi-Pattern LDC) have been nominated for numerous awards, including the prestigious 2017 NAMM TEC Award.

 

Aston Starlight

The first ever laser targeting pencil microphone, the Aston Starlight allows for recall of mic position in studio use and is incredibly quick and easy set up in live applications. The microphone also showcases Aston’s unique variable voice switching for sound contouring, nearly indestructible build quality, a signature sintered head and Aston’s, now famous, tumbled 100% stainless steel chassis.

The Starlight features a cardioid capsule and just like all Aston microphones, this was hand-picked by a panel of more than 50 top producers during double blind listening tests conducted during 2016.
