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.
