Toronto, Canada (May 23, 2016)—Aston Microphones has been making waves since it began showing its first mics around the industry last fall; now Canada’s Yorkville Sound has added the mic manufacturer to its catalog of distributed lines.
The first four products in the Aston catalog are two studio microphones (Origin and Spirit), one compact shockmount (Rycote), and a reflection filter (Halo).
Aston Microphones was established in 2015 by former co-founders behind sE Electronics—James Young, Phil Smith and business partners Alan Gavin and Jack Munro. The result is, according to Aston, the first UK-manufactured condenser mic brand.
Alternately aimed at home recordists and project studio owners, the mics are designed and built in the UK, and will be shipping Summer 2016.
