Stealth is the newest mic from Aston Microphones, and is unique in a number of ways. Similar to the Origin, Stealth was developed in partnership with more than 90 top engineers, producers and artists on the Aston 33 development panel who participated in a series of blind listening tests designed to create the best possible sound. The fixed cardioid mic features four switchable voices to suit different situations — Vocal 1, Vocal 2, Guitar, and Dark. Aston says Stealth is fit for both studio and stage applications and can work in both passive and active modes. An autodetect function senses 48V phantom power and switches the mic to active mode which activates a built-in Class A mic preamp to boost the output, as indicated by the built-in purple LED (which can be turned off). Other unique features include a Sorbothane internal shock mount system and Aston’s near-indestructible build quality. Stealth ships with a quick release stand mount.
