Aston Microphones Rycote reviews

Rycote Shockmount for Aston Microphones is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE ASTON! I will start by saying I love ASTON Mics! All shock mounts are not equal, and Rycote shock mounts are worth the investment. This one in particular as it boasts the same features as the Rycote Universal Shockmount. The benefits of this shock mount include the way it grips the microphone. The benefits of the Rycote system include the ability to fit multiple types of mics with the screw in sides preventing infrasonic activity from the microphone body, causing the resonance to dissipate . The mount is built excellently. It beats the Universal Rycote but half the price and it really handles well in the studio.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MAKE SURE TO BUY AN ADAPTER The shock mount is great and works perfectly with the aston spirit i bought it with, but i was unable to use it right away when i realized it was threaded for UK only. So make sure you buy a 3/8 Male to 5/8 Female Mic Screw Adapter with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the investment Two things about shock mounts. 1) All shock mounts are not equal. 2) A mount that grips the body of the mic, as opposed to a common spider-style mount that only screws into the bottom can and will reduce body resonance. Body resonance on a mic can actually mask audible frequencies and turn your lows and mids a bit muddy. By dampening infrasonic activity and allowing that resonance to dissipate like the Rycote does, you actually get tighter lows and punchier mids. Plus, the way this mount is built, it really handles well the main issue of mitigating rumble from the mic stand or floor. I was skeptical at first, but after doing my research and now owning one of these, I'm a believer. Plus, it's really great to have a single mount that allows for such easy switching of microphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have shockmount for Aston mics I have two Origin mics and decided to get the shock mounts to help with placement a bit. They are solidly built and complement the Aston mics wonderfully. Very pleased. Will likely use these great mounts with other microphones.
