A gorgeous sounding classic at an incredible price. The WA-47 is an all vacuum tube, large diaphragm, transformer balanced, multi-pattern, 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.
Comparing to 2 different vintage 47 mics, Warm Audio 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's sound.
The result, a gorgeous sounding classic at a price thats reachable to more people than ever before. The WA-47 sounds nearly indistinguishable from the vintage 47s that were auditioned on several sources. Custom true'47 capsule reproduction.
