Aston Microphones will be launching two new products at NAMM this year, both microphone accessories, with the option of purchasing both in a bundle.
The first is the Aston Swift universal shock mount designed for speedy operation with two quick release spring clips to suit a range of mic sizes from 30-55mm diameters. Rubber bands are a notable absentee in the Swift’s construction, with isolation provided by a unique latex suspension system which Aston has dubbed ‘ShockStar’. The shock mount frame is made of hard-wearing aluminium and glass-fill nylon polymer.
Second is the Aston Shield GN pop filter and gooseneck. Secured to a mic stand with an oversized crocodile clip, the pop filter design is made of stainless steel (easily washable) with “precisely acid etched hexagonal filter holes” to transmit clear vocal performances while plundering plosives. The gooseneck support has a black rubberised finish and allows flexible positioning.
The SwiftShield is both of the above products bundled into a single offering from Aston. The new mic accessories will be on display at the Aston booth at NAMM in California, along with the rest of the brand’s microphones.
