British microphone manufacturer Aston, prides itself on producing microphones and accessories of the highest quality:
"The final panel vote for both the Aston ‘Origin’ cardioid condenser, and the Aston ‘Sprit’ multi-pattern condenser, was absolutely clear on the winners, and the result… Two Aston microphones which we believe are the best sounding microphones available on the market, not only at these price points, but well beyond them. Microphones designed by British engineers, the sound developed by the best ears in the business, and then made in the UK… a pretty cool combination."

The Starlight features a 20 mm cardioid capsule hand-picked by a panel of more than 70 top producers (Aston 33) in double blind listening tests conducted during 2016. Starlight showcases a host of innovations, including laser targeting, multiple voices (Vintage, Modern & Hybrid), and near perfectly linear off-axis response, which have seen the mic win a host of international awards, and a nomination for 2018 NAMM TEC, the ‘Oscars’ of the music technology industry.
