The Aston Origin Cardioid Condenser Microphone is built like a boutique microphone, using hand-selected capsules, high-end transformers, and custom capacitors. It’s signature Wave-Form Mesh Head is a unique design that not only makes the Origin stand out from other mics, but offers ultimate support of the mic capsule.
With Origin, there is no need for a separate windscreen. A mesh-knit pop-filter is built right into the Wave-Form head. It’s custom weave design allows great transparency, and virtually eliminates plosives and unwanted noise. The casing is formed in stainless steel, so it won’t rust with use, and can even be removed and washed.
Another great feature of the Origin is the custom End Caps, not found on any other microphone of its kind. The End Caps are designed to absorb high amounts of unwanted rumble from the floor, low end from the control room, or an adjacent isolation booth, completely removing the need of a third party shock-mount. The End Cap can be adjusted to fit any type of stand.
Every Aston microphone has a completely unique design on their chassis, which are individually tumbled for up to four hours to give it a tough exterior, and extremely beautiful finish. To top it all off, each microphone is engraved with Aston's brand mantra, ‘The art of performance’.

This mic is about as clear as they come. Voice over and music home studio sessions have never sounded so good. Coming in with an extra layer of confidence really changes the game.

That makes the microphone the first interface with the vibrating air and the first link in the audio chain. Like any endeavor, you want to have a solid foundation. The microphone is that foundation. Choose the right one and your life just got easier. Choose the wrong one and you’ll be fighting an uphill battle all the way through the signal path. And nobody wants that. Continue reading →

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
Better than expected! Truly impeccable service. Your team was professional, knowledgeable, provided speedy delivery above and beyond standard. Vintage King Audio is definitely my go to for all of my audio and information needs.
