Aston Black Bundles

Following the introduction of the Aston Origin Black and Aston Spirit Black Bundles in 2020, the clamour from end-users to resume these limited production studio production sets has been staggering. The unique black textured finish clearly struck a chord with Aston fans and demand exceeded supply. 

Combining the award-winning Aston Spirit and Origin microphones in their custom textured black finish with the best-in-class SwiftShield pop-filter and shock-mount set, the beautiful Aston Black Bundles contain everything required for professional grade recordings of vocals, instruments and most other sound sources.

The legendary and game-changing Aston Origin and Aston Spirit studio condenser microphones have won multiple awards and industry accolades since their launch in late 2015. 

Now with the Aston Origin Black Bundle and Aston Spirit Black Bundle, both microphones are available in gorgeous black-textured versions and are supplied in a sleek package with the Aston SwiftShield, Aston’s highly effective and universal Shock-Mount & Pop-Filter combination. Both bundles include everything you need for professional grade recordings of vocals, instruments and pretty much anything else you can throw at them!

Aston Origin
Aston Microphones’ first design, Origin is a high-performance cardioid condenser microphone utilising a one-inch (1″) 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.

Aston Spirit
A high-performance switchable pattern condenser microphone, Spirit also utilises a 1” gold evaporated capsule selected by the Aston 33 panel, but pairs it with high-end transformer balanced circuitry using only the best components. Designed to deliver a beautifully open sound with sparkling harmonics, Spirit is a highly accurate microphone that gives a stunningly natural and transparent recording, capturing all the detail in the high range but without adding the harshness that some condenser microphones seem to. While versatile enough to be used with most instruments, it truly excels on acoustic guitar and vocals.

Aston SwiftShield
The Aston Swift shock-mount takes microphone mounting to the next level of ease. With 2 quick release spring clips, mounting your microphone takes seconds and while the ‘ShockStar’ suspension eliminates the need for fiddly rubber bands, it offers a high level of elasticity for maximum isolation.

The solid stainless steel Shield is widely recognised as the best pop filter on the market. It features precisely acid-etched hexagonal filter holes to give crystal clear vocals and unparalleled plosive control. It also presents a large surface area and curves around the mic, so vocalist movement is never an issue.

SwiftShield, included in both sets, combines the Swift shock-mount and the Shield pop-filter to provide the perfect studio set-up for either mic.
