Aston Microphones launch Stealth – The World’s Most Versatile Microphone

Dec 12, 2018 | News, Pro Audio Products

Aston Microphones is launching a brand new product today.

The Aston Stealth is truly another groundbreaking product from Aston and will soon be shipping from Audio Distribution Group.

Aston Stealth
The World’s Most Versatile Microphone

Stealth is the world’s first microphone with an autodetect function which senses 48V phantom power and automatically switches the mic to active mode. A built-in, high quality, Class A Mic Preamp dispenses with the need for an external gain lifting device in active mode. Stealth also features a unique Sorbothane internal shock mount system and Aston’s legendary build quality. With so many cutting-edge features and being suitable for almost every conceivable application, we believe Stealth is the world’s most versatile microphone.

Stealth was developed in partnership with more than 90 top engineers, producers and artists on the Aston 33 development panel who participated in a series of blind listening tests designed to create the best possible sound. The resulting four voice settings, Vocal 1, Vocal 2, Guitar and Dark, offer an unprecedented variety of world class sounds to suit almost every application.
