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 the last 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 1960s 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. We 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 our WA-47 sonics to sit right in with these 2 vintage 47 mics. We are pleased to release such a gorgeous sounding classic to the market at a price thats reachable to more people than ever before.
We are also proud to mention that the WA-47 sounds legitimately indistinguishable to the vintage 47s we auditioned on several sources.
