Aston Microphones Spirit Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone - 47622
By Aston Microphones
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 such as WIMA capacitors, the same devices youll find in boutique microphones costing far more than the Spirit.<br /><p><strong>Wave-Form Mesh Head</strong><br>The Origin features Astons signature wave-form mesh head. This unique design delivers an unprecedented degree of protection for the mic capsule. Its shock-resistant wave-form design allows the head of the mic to bend upon impact, and then return to its normal position without any damage to the capsule itself. It also offers a degree of off-axis rejection, helping to eliminate unwanted artifacts from your recordings.</p> <p></p> <p><strong>Built-In Pop Filter</strong><br>Astons vocal condenser microphones have an exclusive mesh-knit pop filter built into the waveform head. The random weave allows sound to pass while virtually eliminating unwanted plosives at the source. It also shields against multiple wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation, making it ideal in sensitive electronic applications. This completely encapsulating, single piece, mesh cage is formed in stainless steel, so wont rust with use, and can even be removed and washed.</p> <p></p> <p><strong>End Caps</strong><br>Yet another unique design element of the Aston Origin is the use of custom-molded end caps with integrated XLR and stand adaptor. Because the internal shock absorption system is so good, you can mount the microphone directly to a stand via this built-in, interchangeable thread adapter. The design also makes Aston microphones easy to repair and maintain.</p> <p></p> <p><strong>Chassis</strong><br>Part of the beauty of Aston microphone<ul><li><p>Transducer Type: Condenser</li><li>Acoustic Operating Principle: Pressure Gradient</li><li>Frequency Response: 20Hz 20kHz (+/-3dB)</li><li>Equivalent Noise Level: 14dB A-Weighted</li><li>Sensitivity at 1kHz into 1kohm: 23.7mV/Pa</li><li>Maximum SPL for THD 0.
