As one of the most buzzed about pro audio companies to come about in years, Aston Microphones has created two impressive additions to the world of large condenser mics that stand up to their hype. Dubbed the Spirit and Origin, the two microphones both feature impressive builds that are capable of capturing beautiful audio recordings with price tags that won't be detrimental to your wallet.

What is it about these microphones that has everyone talking? When first looking at the Spirit and Origin, it's hard to imagine the sturdy microphone you hold in your hand cost you less than $400. A rugged chasis, custom moulded end caps, internal shock system and wave-form mesh head ensure that these microphones not only sound good, but are durable and will be in your microphone locker for a long time to come.

As for the sound of the Spirit and Origin, these mics are on par with microphones nearly three times their price. The Origin is a cardioid mic that features a 1" gold evaporated capsule and delivers an intimate sound (great for recording acoustic guitars and vocals). Likewise, the larger Spirit mic also captures natural and transparent recordings, but offers different polar pattern options including omni, cardioid and figure-eight.

Since we first got the Spirit and Origin, we've been extremely excited about hearing these microphones in action. To find out why there is so much love and hype for Aston Microphones, we put them to the test and recorded some tracks using both mics on acoustic guitar, vocals and drums. Watch below to discover how these microphones respond in different studio situations and prepare to be wow'd by Aston's creations.

  • This morning I opened an email from you, which showed a guy with a guitar, and it said "We tested multiple mics on just a guitar, to see which one sounded best" I skipped watching it, and scrolled through what else was on your post. After looking at other parts of your post, I tried to go back to see and listen to the different mics recording the guitar, no luck at all, could not find that particular segment again. What happened?? And where is that particular segment???????
