The Aston Swift shock mount takes microphone mounting to the next level of ease. With 2 quick release spring clips designed to fit a wide range of mics, from 30-55mm diameter, mounting your microphone takes seconds.

Aston Swift key features

  • Universal mic mount – fits mics 30 to 55 mm diameter
  • Ultimate mechanical isolation with Aston’s ‘ShockStar’ technology
  • Super-hardwearing Aluminium and glass-fill nylon construction
  • Ultra-swift proprietary mounting system
  • No more rubber bands!

We have reconceived the shock system, and as with all our products worked from the ground up on an entirely new design idea. The ‘ShockStar’ suspension eliminates the need for fiddly rubber bands, but offers a high level of elasticity for maximum isolation. As with all Aston products, the use of novel materials and our unique, architectural, approach to design is setting new standards for the industry.

The pop filter itself features a unique, solid stainless steel shield, with precisely acid etched hexagonal filter holes, to give crystal clear vocals, with perfect acoustic performance for plosive (pop) control. It also presents a large surface area and curves around the mic, so vocalist movement is never an issue.

Together with your mic, the Aston SwiftShield set will give you everything you need for vocal mic applications, and really make your set up stand out from the crowd.

Aston SwiftShield key features

  • Universal mic mount – fits mics 30 to 55 mm diameter
  • Ultimate mechanical isolation with Aston’s ‘ShockStar’ technology
  • Super-hardwearing Aluminium and glass-fill nylon construction
  • Ultra-swift proprietary mounting system
  • Solid stainless steel pop shield with ‘Hextech’ filter holes

Both the Swift and Shield are available as individual items. So whether you need one of the best shocks mounts you can buy, but no pop shield, or if you already own an Aston Shock and want to upgrade it to the SwiftShield, your options are completely open to work the way you want to.

The Aston Shield SM is also available as a stand-alone gooseneck version for all your mic’ing applications (Shield GN).
