Thomas McRocklin tears it up on an acoustic with an Aston Origin

Category : Artists

Check out these videos of guitar virtuoso Thomas McRocklin tearing it up on an acoustic with his mic of choice, an Aston Origin, tasked with capturing the tone.

Thomas started turning heads with his playing at the age of four, and at eight years old he opened a show for rock royalty Ozzy Osbourne. He was featured in the Warner Bros documentary ‘Legends of the Guitar’ by Jeff ‘Skunk’ Baxter at the age of 11, finding himself amongst guitar greats including David Gilmour, Tony Iommi, Eric Johnson, and Mark Knopfler. Steve Vai became a close friend and mentor and Thomas featured in Vai’s music video for “The Audience is Listening.”

An accomplished producer and mastering engineer, Thomas has returned to the frontline of guitar playing and his videos attract huge audiences on Youtube and Instagram.

The Aston Origin large-diaphragm condenser mic used on the recordings, is fast becoming a classic, for guitars, vocals and a host of other applications, and has a growing following amongst top artist, engineers, and producers across the globe. As Thomas posted recently:

“How cool does this Aston Mics Origin sound? I totally dig it.”
