The definition of unique design, the UK-made Aston Origin is unlike any other microphone you have ever seen.

The Origin's signature shock-resistant wave-form mesh head not only has a completely unique and stylish appearance, but also completely encapsulates the capsule at the heart of the mic, offering unrivalled protection.
Heavy impacts that would ordinarily damage or destroy most mics are not an issue with the Origin - the mesh allows the head to be returned to its normal position when distorted, without any damage or loss of functionality.

The wave-form head is also home to an exclusive mesh-knit pop filter, eliminating the need for an external pop filter altogether. Even better, the random pattern of the mesh weave and off-axis rejection allows sound to
pass while virtually eliminating unwanted plosives and unwanted artefacts from your recordings.

The already fantastic mesh also shields against multiple wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation and thanks to its stainless steel construction, it won't rust with use and is even removable and washable.

The Origin features custom moulded end caps with an integrated XLR and stand adaptor - another unique feature for this microphone not currently found anywhere else. The internal shock absorption system is so good that the Origin
can be mounted directly to any stand without the need for additional adaptors or accessories.

The design also makes Aston microphones extremely easy to repair and maintain.

But it isn't all just about function here - not when the form is this good!
Each microphone chassis comes with a beautiful custom finish which is individually tumbled for up to 4 hours to give it an extremely hard-wearing yet beautiful finish, which is then individually engraved.

Superb mic

Upgraded from my Rode nt1-a to the Origin and haven't looked back since! A fantastic mic, superb quality and a great price. Went for the Halo vocal booth as well and both look great in my home studio.

Professional mic

I was after a microphone to record my acoustic guitar but wasn’t sure which one to get. After chatting to Inta, I decided to go with the Origin, recommended by one of the staff. I couldn’t be happier with this mic, my guitar sounds super clear and out shines any of my previous recordings. Not too expensive either for what you’re getting.
