Aston Starlight Cardioid Microphone
The Aston Starlight Cardioid Microphone is the first ever laser targeting pencil microphone, allowing for recall of mic position during studio recording sessions and incredibly quick setup in live performance venues. The Starlight microphone features Aston's unique variable voicing switch for optimal performance, an exceptional build quality, a signature sintered head and the iconic tumbled 100 percent stainless steel chassis.
Three modes of voice selection further diversify the application of the Starlight microphones – Vintage, Modern and Hybrid. These different colours allow for fast A>B comparisons between modes on the same sound source with the sliding of a switch.
The Starlight’s Discrete Mic Amp Circuit (PCB) is extremely sensitive and yet records with low noise and plenty of head room. Its high output level also means any preamps in the signal chain can operate at a lower gain than would normally be expected, giving more options in terms of the amount of distortion recorded.
Aston packages its products in eco-friendly, re-usable materials.
