The Aston Spirit Multi-Pattern Condenser Mic and Rode NT5 Matched Pair Kit from B&H features an Aston high-performance, switchable-pattern microphone, a Rycote shockmount for the Aston microphone, a matched pair of Rode NT5 cardioid studio condenser microphones, and three Kopul premium XLRM to XLRF microphone cables. This kit can be used by engineers, musicians, and producers to capture audio for live sound and studio applications.

The Spirit microphone utilizes a 1" gold-evaporated capsule and has a switch on the mic body to select from Omni, Cardioid or Figure-8 polar patterns. It is versatile, can be used with most instruments, and sounds great on acoustic guitar and vocals. An Aston shockmount is included to help eliminate bumps and vibrations.

The Rode NT5 microphones come in a matched pair and are small-diaphragm condenser mics that are sometimes referred to as 'pencil mics'. They are great for recording acoustic instruments, drum overheads, cymbals, and live performances. They use a 1/2" capsule and an active J-FET impedance converter with bipolar output buffer. The tight cardioid pickup pattern also makes them ideal for use as indoor dialogue microphones for filmmaking on a mic stand or boom.

In addition, the Aston Spirit Multi-Pattern Condenser Mic and Rode NT5 Matched Pair Kit includes three premium XLRM to XLRF microphone cables for connecting the microphones to your mixer or amplifier system.

  • Aston Microphones Spirit Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone
    The Aston Spirit is a multi-pattern condenser microphone utilizing a 1" gold-evaporated capsule. A switch on the mic body selects between Omni, Cardioid or Figure-8 polar patterns. It is versatile enough to use with most instruments, and excels on acoustic guitar and vocals. Its hand-selected capsule is teamed with high-end transformer-balanced circuitry using only the best components.

    The Spirit is designed to deliver an open sound with sparkling harmonics. This accurate microphone provides natural and transparent recording, capturing detail in the high range, but without adding the harshness that some condenser microphones tend to.

    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.
  • Rode NT5 Cardioid Studio Condenser Microphones (Matched Pair)
    The NT5 from Rode is a matched pair of small diaphragm microphones featuring full frequency response and low-noise output circuitry. Designed for general instrument recording and sound reinforcement.

    The cardioid polar pattern effectively minimizes audio at the off-axis sections, reducing noise caused by, leakage, monitors, additional instruments etc. The NT5 offers a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz allowing the microphones to be used in a wide variety of applications such as drum over-head miking, stereo capturing of instruments, vocal capturing etc. The NT5 is powered via +24V or +48V phantom power. The package includes dual windscreens and stand mounts in a durable road case.

    Cardioid Pattern
    The cardioid polar pattern is effective in minimizing of-axis noise due to leakage, additional instruments, room ambiance etc.
    Wide Frequency Response
    The NT5 features a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz allowing the flexibility to capture accurately in any recording or sound reinforcement scenario.

  • 3 x 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
