Based On The Classic 87 Circuit

The WA87 Condenser Microphone bases its design on early incarnations of the classic '87 circuitry, opting for a warm yet articulate sound for that infamous vintage tone. The '87 is one of the most well-known and widely-used large diaphragm condenser microphones in music history. Now you can have the warm sultry tone that the classic '87 circuit produces at an affordable price.

Premium-Quality Components

Warm Audio have incorporated a range of premium-quality components to deliver exceptional audio performance and fidelity throughout. The all discrete circuitry utilises high-grade components such as Fairchild FETS, tantalum, polystryrene and WIMA film capacitors as well as a Cinemag USA output transformer. The microphone also uses a custom reproduction of the class K-87 dual backplate/dual diaphragm capsule, found in early iterations of the '87 microphones.

Versatile Recording Applications

The Warm Audio WA87 Condenser Microphone included three selectable pickup patterns, ideal for a range of recording applications. The cardioid pickup pattern is perfect for capturing studio-grade vocal recordings, with the microphone only picking up what directly in front of it, minimising background noise and improving clarity. The figure-of-eight pattern is ideal for duets and interviews, allowing you to utilise both sides of the microphone at once. The omnidirectional microphone is better for overheads and ambient mic use, allowing you to pick up everything around the microphone. A -10dB pad is also included for higher level sound sources.
