In this year’s Gear of the Year awards, British brand Aston Microphones has been nominated in two categories for their stellar work on the Aston Element. The microphone is featured in the Best Microphone and Best Innovation categories.
In celebration of the nomination and the overwhelmingly positive reviews we’ve written of Aston products in the past, MusicTech has teamed up with the good folk at Aston to give away five Aston Element bundles – that’s a prize draw worth £795! Each bundle comes with an Aston Element mic, a unique magnetic pop filter and a one-click shock mount – all wrapped in eco-friendly packaging.
For a chance to win to one, answer the question below.
In our review of the Element, we said: “If you only ever own one microphone, it’s important that it’s able to cover all or at least most of your recording requirements…Element excels as a vocal mic and easily outperforms most similarly priced condensers. But this mic is a true all-rounder too. It has the delicacy and detail of a condenser along with the high sound-pressure level handling capabilities of a rugged dynamic design, all of which means you can use it close to loud electric guitar amplifiers and drum kits, as well as softer instruments. It’s firm low-end brings out the best in tom and if you don’t have a kick-drum mic, the Element can deal with that too. A mic for all seasons, then, or as the company says, the world’s first ‘People’s Microphone’.”
