Warm Audio

collapse expand iconDescription

Designed to capture the warm, vintage acoustics of the original ’47, Warm Audio offers the WA-47 tube condenser microphone, with much greater accessibility. With universal application of studio, home or live use, the versatility of this mic lends itself to any situation without comprising on sound quality. Paying homage to its predecessor, the sonic character of this mic gives a balanced range with the richness you’re looking for, at a value that cannot be beaten.

Custom Reproduction Gives Pristine Sound

The dual-diaphragm, gold-sputtered, large K47-style capsule, is a reproduction of the vintage dual-backplate K47 capsule to bring you that sumptuous, authentic ’47 sonic character. Another critical component of this mic is the 5751 vacuum tube that gives velvety, rich acoustics to truly remind you why the original ’47 was so beloved. To further supply a rounded and smooth sound, is the large-core TAB (AMI) transformer, made in the USA but with German laminations to really deliver the lauded German analog audio sound. Having WIMA, Solen French and polystyrene capacitors throughout, the WA-47 gives a reliable and balanced tone.

Vintage Acoustics With Accessible Features

After extensive research, Warm Audio decide to use a Gotham Audio GAC-7 cable. Learning about how 7-pin cables can reduce phase shift and increase top-end presence, Gotham Audio seemed the logical choice to partner with for their high-end, Swiss-produced cabling to provide the best sonic choice for this condenser mic. There are nine polar patterns: cardioid, omni, figure-8, and six mixed patterns all provide a balanced frequency response for ultimate versatility. With a bright top end and a rich low end, the WA-47 is a compelling option for anyone looking for that classic ‘47 sound.
