The Aston Origin Mic and Golden Age Project Pre-73 Jr. Preamp/Direct Box Kit from B&H feature an Origin cardioid condenser microphone, a Rycote shockmount, a Golden Age Project Pre-73 Jr. 1073-style microphone preamp/direct box; an Auray MS-5230F tripod microphone stand with fixed boom, a Rycote InVision universal pop filter, a Kopul premium XLRF to XLRM microphone cable; and an iZotope RX plug-in pack with an activation card and download link.

The kit has everything you need to capture professional vocals. With a 1" gold-evaporated capsule and a transformer-less circuitry, the mic is versatile enough to use with most instruments, such as acoustic guitar and strings. It is built from a single-piece mesh of stainless steel and the kit's Rycote shockmount helps to reduce the bulk of shock and handling noise.

Furthermore, the Golden Age Project Pre-73 Jr. 1073-style microphone preamp uses a Class-A circuit design and incorporates a Carnhill input transformer. The preamp unit's gain switch range is from 20 to 70 dB with switchable +48V phantom power. The rear panel has combo XLR/TRS input jacks and separate output XLR and TRS jacks to make flexible connections.

Additionally, the tripod microphone stand with a 31.5" fixed boom is made of a durable steel construction that has non-slip feet. A Rycote pop filter, XLR cable, and iZotope RX plug-in software are also included.

  • Aston Microphones Origin Cardioid Condenser Microphone

    The Aston Origin is a cardioid condenser microphone that utilizes a 1” gold-evaporated capsule. It is versatile enough to use with most instruments, such as acoustic guitar and strings, and sounds great on vocals. Its hand-selected capsule is combined with transformer-less circuitry to deliver accurate sound reproduction.

    The mic has a mesh-knit pop filter built into the wave-form head. The weave allows sound to pass while reducing unwanted plosives. This single-piece mesh cage is formed in stainless steel, so it won't rust with use and can even be removed and washed.

    • Custom-molded end caps with integrated XLR and stand adapter
    • Harmonized circuit-stage arrangement for easy integration from phantom-power input circuitry to capsule voltage bias
    • Non-linear voltage/current-source rectification to provide controlled amplification and smooth/clear audio

     

  • Aston Microphones Rycote Shockmount for Aston Microphones

    The Shockmount for Aston Microphones from Rycote is a large-diaphragm microphone suspension and shockmount with a 5/8" standmount. It can be used to reduce the bulk of shock and handling noise to the microphone in applications for broadcasts, recording studios, rehearsals, and more. It features a Lyre suspension and has a 5/8" thread for mounting on a microphone stand.

  • Golden Age Project PRE-73 JR - 1073-Style Microphone Preamp/Direct Box

    The Golden Age Project PRE-73 JR 1073-Style Microphone Preamp/Direct Box is designed for professional recording applications. The combination microphone preamp and DI uses a discrete Class-A circuit design without any integrated circuits. It is ready for the optional Carnhill input transformer to be installed, which offers the sound of a classic 1073 but in a smaller and more cost-effective form factor. Up to four of the units can be mounted together in a single 19" rack space using an available rack kit.

    The unit's gain switch range spans from 20 to 70 dB with switchable +48V phantom power and absolute phase control. The front panel features a 1/4" input to connect a high-impedance instrument input for any sound module, electric guitar, or bass. A simple signal LED indicator provides visual feedback. The unit's output level control makes it possible to make fine adjustments, and also to overload the main gain stage for more character, and then lower the signal to a suitable level before the output stage.

    The rear panel features a combo XLR/TRS input jack, and separate output XLR and TRS jacks to make flexible connections. An insert jack for inserting EQs or other processing units is included. An external power supply helps to avoid interaction with the audio circuit and transformers of the device.

    Note: Note! This preamp does not include the Carnhill input transformer. The circuit board is prepared for the transformer to be installed.

  • Auray MS-5230F Tripod Microphone Stand with Fixed Boom

    The Auray MS-5230F Tripod Microphone Stand with Fixed Boom features durable, steel construction. The 31.5" boom arm allows you to angle the mic however you need it. An ergonomic twist-action clutch helps adjust the height of the stand, while the reinforced tripod base and non-slip feet keep it firmly and sturdily in place. The Auray MS-5230F mic stand collapses for easy transport.

  • Rycote InVision Universal Pop Filter

    The InVision Universal Pop Filter by Rycote has a custom mesh filter designed to eliminate pops caused by B's and P's in vocal performances by attenuating the frequencies up to 20dB. Unlike other pop filters, this one causes no audible high-frequency loss keeping the integrity of the original sound produced by your microphone.

    With its universal screw clamp, the InVision pop filter is designed to fit any universal shock mount and most other mic suspensions with diameters between 1/8 and 1/2". When the time comes, the mesh filter is replaceable helping to maintain a clean, hygienic studio and the ergonomic frame is designed for comfort when in front of your face so you can focus on your performance and not what's in front of you.

    Mesh filter attenuates low-frequency vocal pops up to 20dB with no audible high-frequency loss
    Ergonomic frame is designed for comfort when placed in front of the mouth and face
    The custom mesh filter is replaceable for cleaning or replacement
    Designed to fit the outer ring of any universal shock mount and most other mic suspensions
  • Kopul Premier Quad Pro 5000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 25' (7.6 m), Black

    The Kopul Premier Quad Pro 5000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 25' (7.6 m) is a studio- and broadcast-quality 4-conductor cable precision engineered for maximum rejection of RFI and electro-magnetic interference, extremely quiet performance, high flexibility and durability. Its twisted quad-conductor design features oxygen-free copper and allows for excellent conductivity, flexibility, low capacitance, and tensile strength.

    This design affords the conductors a twist pitch length of only 2cm, reducing interference by assuring the minimum amount of the conductor is parallel to interference sources at any given section. The result is increased rejection of electro-magnetic and RFI noise, even in close proximity to the source. Cotton yarn is packed in to reduce friction between conductors and prevent unwanted electrostatic build-up and microphonic noise. The 99% braided TAC shield provides additional noise protection and corrosion resistance. Its Neutrik XX gold connectors provide high-quality, corrosion-free connectivity, and each solder point is individually shrink-wrapped for additional protection and to meet network broadcast facility standards.

    Premier Quad Pro 5000 Series cables are ideal for use in the most demanding studio, touring, and broadcast applications.

    Precision-engineered twisted quad-conductor design
    2cm pitch twist length for greater induced noise reduction
    99% tinned copper braided shield for long-lasting protection against RFI and EMI
    Ultra-low capacitance for accurate signal reproduction
    Cotton yarn to reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise
    Shrink-wrapped solder points for extra protection
    Ideal for broadcast and audio professionals
