Warm Audio WA87 FET Large-Diaphragm Mic. The classic'87 is arguably the most widely-used large diaphragm condenser microphone in pop recording history.
Rather than base Warm Audio's WA-87 circuit on current incarnations of this mic, they decided to closely follow the early circuit designs that date back nearly half a century. As is true with many classic microphones, engineers who have worked with different versions of these microphones often prefer the warmer, more forgiving nature of the earlier commercially available models. The desire to re-introduce the warm tone of this classic mic at an affordable price to this generation of recording artists was the inspiration behind the WA-87. Quality Components Make a Better Mic.The WA-87 features all discrete, premium components such as Fairchild FETs, tantalum, polystyrene, and WIMA film capacitors, and is rounded off with a Cinemag USA output transformer. Warm Audio proudly uses their own Lens Kondensator custom reproduction of the classic K-87 dual backplate/dual diaphragm capsule, as found in early'87 mics. The importance of a good microphone cannot be overstated; but unfortunately, finding a truly great microphone within a budget has always been a challenge for aspiring engineers. There are very usable microphones available for those on a budget; but top-shelf, classic studio microphones have simply been out of reach for most people. Warm Audio applied all they know about bridging this barrier to craft a microphone that reaches the level of quality and sonics mostly found only in top-shelf products -- yet sells for a price that is down to earth.
