    SKU: ASTOSTEALTH
    Aston Reinvents the Broadcast Dynamic MicThe Aston Stealth is a broadcast-quality cardioid dynamic mic with quite a few tricks up its sleeve. Built to stand up to -- and outperform -- many of the industry's most famous broadcast dynamic mics, the Stealth includes 4 switchable voicings, an built-in preamp circuit that's powered by +48V phantom power in Active mode, and an internal Sorothane shock mount system that eliminates the need for a external shock mount. Voicing Modes: Like Four Pro-Quality Mics in OneWhen Aston set out to determine the voicing for the Stealth microphone, they tried out a series of prototypes with some 90 top engineers, producers and artists. In double-blind tests, Aston's experts found that certain voicings performed best on male vocals, female vocals, and acoustic and electric guitars. That's why the Stealth comes with four switchable voicing modes: Vocal 1, Vocal 2, Guitar, and Dark mode -- a vintage-inspired, ribbon-mic-like voicing that smoothes out harsh edges on horns, violins, vocals, and any source you'd put up in front of a ribbon.The Aston Stealth's four switchable voicings aren't EQ filters, they're contour networks, which leave the bulk of the signal unprocessed and pure. Yet, the result is like four pro-quality mics in one, giving you easy-to-test options when you put this mic up in front of a singer.Phantom Power Auto-Detect and Built-in Preamp CircuitIn another industry first, the Aston Stealth autodetects phantom power and automatically switches to active mode, firing up a Class A mic preamp built into the mic body itself -- doing away with any need for an external gain-lifting device. Unlike many low-output dynamics that require a Cloudlifter-type circuit to get the best sound, the Stealth can make use of +48V that your mic preamp is already supplying. It also functions in passive mode without phantom power, just as you'd expect from a pro dynamic mic.Serious Internal Shock MountAston left no stone unturned with the Stealth. With their internal Sorothane shock-mount system, there's no need for a bulky spider mount or yoke system on this mic. In fact, the Stealth's capsule is completely isolated from the chassis. Just use the included stand mount and the mic's built-in quick-release mount to click the Aston Stealth into place and angle it perfectly to pick up any source.
