AST-SPIRIT

Online

The Aston SPIRIT is a high-performance, switchable pattern, microphone utilizing 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 acoustic guitar and vocals. Its hand-selected capsule is teamed 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 that some condenser microphones seem to.

This is a super versatile microphone. I have used it to record guitars, voices, and woodwinds, and it's absolutely amazing. Super crispy sound, with a decent pop-filter you are good to go. I own an NT2A (Rode) that is very similar, but I still prefer to record with this microphone. Don't let the packaging fool you, because it does look like a cheap microphone when you buy it. However, the company is super environmentally responsible and they make this box and its contents with recycled materials (including the microphone.) Give it a try, I am sure it'll be one of your favorite mics, as it is one my favorites.

This is a very impressive microphone especially at the price point. Well constructed, and very sturdy. The three polar patterns have very distinct voicings that give you more tonal options out of a single mic. I love my Aston mics.
