Aston Microphones IDLES

Aston has roped in punk rock band IDLES to put the indestructibility of its microphones to the test.


In a new video from the brand, Aston challenged the British act to destroy the Origin and Spirit mics. Which the bandmates, armed with cricket bats and Fender guitars, were more than happy to oblige.

For those unfamiliar with IDLES, their high-octane shows are known for verging on mayhem – so their equipment needs to be able to withstand a beating. We won’t spoil the video for you, so visit this link to find out more.
