Starlight

The Starlight features a 20 mm cardioid capsule hand-picked by a panel of more than 70 top producers (Aston 33) in double blind listening tests conducted during 2016. Starlight showcases a host of innovations, including laser targeting, multiple voices (Vintage, Modern & Hybrid), and near perfectly linear off-axis response, which have seen the mic win a host of international awards, and a nomination for 2018 NAMM TEC, the ‘Oscars’ of the music technology industry.

The Starlight is, like all of our products, packed full of technical innovation and sounds truly stunning. Nominated for the prestigious NAMM TEC Award in 2018 it represents the very pinnacle of pencil mic technology with its multiple voicing options, laser targeting and near perfectly linear off axis response. Beautiful, and outrageously good.
