Winner of ‘Best Microphone’ at 35th NAMM TEC Awards – the ONLY British mic ever to pick up this prestigious award
Winner of ‘Best Microphone’ at the NAMM TEC Awards, the audio and music industry’s most prestigious international awards, Aston Stealth is the only British manufactured microphone ever to achieve this, beating several huge global brands in the process. It was Aston’s third NAMM nomination in the company’s 4 year history.
Broadcast quality microphone for studio and stage with 4 switchable voices delivering unparalleled performance in almost any situation. An autodetect function senses 48V phantom power and activates a built-in, high quality, Class A Mic Pre, dispensing with the need for an external gain lifting device. Stealth features a unique Sorbothane internal shock mount system and Aston’s legendary build quality. Supplied with mic clip.
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.
Four settings, four different voices.
There are 2 vocal settings, optimised for different vocal textures, a guitar setting which is equally suited to Spanish guitar, Electric guitar cab and steel string acoustic, and a dark, vintage setting, reminiscent of classic ribbon mics.
Mics which apply ‘flattering’ - but destructive - pre EQ make professional post-processing almost impossible. Stealth, however, provides a choice of four pure, high quality signal paths. The voice settings are not EQ filters, they are contour networks, meaning the bulk of the signal does not pass through any sort of filter circuitry. The whole signal is slightly attenuated, with some frequencies being added back in at a higher level. This results in much lower phase distortion than conventional filter designs.
Active & Passive modes with 48V Autodetect function
Stealth works with or without 48V phantom power. In passive mode (unpowered) the active circuit is completely bypassed and Stealth operates with the simplest possible signal chain to give a beautifully clean sound.
A unique (world’s first!) built-in Autodetect function senses the presence of 48V phantom power and will automatically switch the mic to active mode to utilise the onboard class A mic Pre.
Built-in Class A Mic Preamp
When in active mode Stealth features a high quality built-in Class A Mic Pre, dispensing with the need for an expensive external gain lifting device.
Stealth features a fully balanced signal path from capsule to output, yielding a superior reduction of ‘Common Mode’ noise compared with single-ended (unbalanced) designs.
Improved side rejection
Stealth’s acoustically tuned headstock provides a highly focused cardioid polar pattern with enhanced off-axis rejection.
Excellent rejection of electromagnetic hum
Stealth’s capsule is completely enclosed in a stainless steel Faraday cage.
