Aston Stealth Microphone review

Recently I bought the Aston Stealth dynamic microphone, and I have been using it in various situations for the past few weeks.  The first time I used it for the cajon was when I did the Taylor Swift cover The Archer a while ago.  There I used in in conjunction with another microphone in the back, and I even included some room microphones for the cymbal and shakers.  This time I wanted to really dive into how the Stealth microphone sounds by itself for the cajon.

 

 

 

The Pros:

Great build quality

Four different voicings make it a very versatile microphone

Built in Class-A pre-amp gives plenty of gain when needed

 

The Cons:

The custom stand mount.  It is simple, but I found it difficult to adjust properly, and it seems very insecure.  I would not be surprised if I would have to replace it sometime in the future.

No vinyl bag or case, just the cardboard box.

 

Verdict:

I think the Ashton Stealth is a very good microphone for us cajon players.  By itself it sounds very good.  I like the V1 voicing best when it is used by itself, but when used with another microphone in the back for more bass response I like the G voicing.  The D voicing gives a different flavour that I believe I might sometime use.
