Warm Audio WA-47 Large-diaphragm Tube Condenser Microphone

Description:

The WA-47 is an all vacuum tube, large diaphragm, transformer balanced, multi-pattern (9), large condenser microphone, based on the classic '47 that has been used on countless hit records for over 50 years.The WA-47 is designed for pro studio, home studio, live, and broadcast applications and sounds great on vocals, acoustic/electric guitars, acoustic/electric bass, drums, piano, strings, brass/woodwind instruments, and an array of other sources. The classic '47 became extremely popular in the 1960’s and is now considered one of the greatest microphones ever made. The classic '47 is still widely used today in professional recording studios but have become extremely rare and expensive to acquire.

Designing the WA-47 to sound like the classic '47 was no easy task, especially considering that some of the vintage components are no longer available. Warm compared and listened to 2 different vintage '47 mics and found that they both sounded amazing but also sounded a little different from each other. These comparison tests became the benchmark for tailoring the WA-47 sonics to sit right in with these 2 vintage '47 mics. As a result, the WA-47 sounds virtually indistinguishable from the vintage version at a price that’s accessible to more people than ever before.

Warm Audio relies heavily on the finest available components to ensure the best sounding product possible. The WA-47 is packed with top end components that are carefully sourced from many of the premier pro audio component suppliers in the world.
