Product Description

The WA-87 condenser microphone 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. The WA-87 proudly uses our own Lens Kondensator custom reproduction of the classic K-87 dual backplate/dual diaphragm capsule, as found in early ‘87 mics.

Warm Audio WA87 FET Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone Features

  • Microphone includes shock mount, hard mount and wood box.
  • Premium components such as Fairchild FETs, tantalum, polystyrene, and WIMA film capacitors
  • Cinemag USA output transformer 
The classic ‘87 is arguably the most widely-used large diaphragm condenser microphone in pop recording history. Rather than base our WA-87 circuit on current incarnations of this mic, we 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 an all new generation of recording artists was the inspiration behind the WA-87.

The importance of a good microphone cannot be understated; 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. We applied all that we know about bridging this barrier into crafting 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.

Best microphone I had so far even compared to the Neumann 102 and 103. Recordings have came out clean helping me get sync placements.

I love this mic!
What is your opinion of this product?
I’ve tried dozens of mics for my vocals and this is the keeper. And I’ve tried mics over $1,000 that did not sound this good.
