Aston Stealth - Broadcast quality microphone for studio and stage with 4 switchable voices
£170.00 ex. vat
The Aston Stealth is a beautifully designed microphone with 4 switchable voices tailored by a total of 92 top engineers to get the perfect sound straight out of the microphone. The Stealth is internally shock mounted and provides you with amazing sound without the need to EQ, the 4 different voices feature different transients, frequency responses and and levels providing you with 1 microphone that's perfect for all applications.
Aston Stealth includes a proprietary internal shock mount design with the capsule suspended in mid-air, completely isolated from the mic chassis, and supported at 3 points by Sorbothane polymer hemi-spheres. Sorbothane is a synthetic viscoelastic urethane polymer used as a vibration damper and acoustic shield used in computing, hi-fi and many industrial applications. Stealth’s acoustically tuned headstock provides a highly focused cardioid polar pattern with enhanced off-axis rejection.
The Stealth is the world’s first microphone with an auto-detect function which senses 48V phantom power and automatically switches the mic to active mode. Stealth was developed in partnership with more than 90 top engineers, producers and artists on the Aston 33 development panel who participated in a series of blind listening tests designed to create the best possible sound. The resulting four voice settings, Vocal 1, Vocal 2, Guitar and Dark, offer an unprecedented variety of world class sounds to suit almost every application.
With some of the biggest advances in mic technology in decades, conceived and designed from the ground-up, Stealth is the world’s most versatile microphone. Boasting settings for four separate voices, each one rigorously tested to deliver unparalleled performance across a wide range of applications, Stealth also introduces a host of innovative technological features offering significant improvements over traditional mic designs.
