Warm Audio // WA-47jr FET Condenser Microphone "Getting Started"
Warm Audio is thrilled to introduce the WA-47jr, a multi-pattern FET condenser microphone aimed at recreating the sound of a revered '47-style tube mic at a fraction of the cost. Boasting a custom-made k47 capsule modeled after the original, the WA-47jr delivers warmth, depth and character. Its solid-state, transformer-less design employs high-quality components for low noise and high detail, with a pristine top end providing extra clarity.
Premium '47-Style Capsule Captures Vintage Tone
The heart of the WA-47jr is its k47 capsule, a meticulous reproduction of the original prized for its ability to capture instruments and vocals with depth and analog smoothness. Handcrafted to the same specifications, the k47 gives the WA-47jr a sound reminiscent of vintage tube mics costing far more. Whether on lead vocals, acoustic guitar or drum overheads, the k47 helps the WA-47jr achieve a full, rich tone with inviting warmth and character.
Versatile FET Circuitry Provides Crisp Detail
While the k47 capsule provides vintage tone, the WA-47jr's solid-state FET circuitry gives it a modern edge. Built from premium components like high-quality Toshiba transistors and WIMA film capacitors, the FET design is optimized for low noise and high detail, with an open, airy top end that adds clarity and definition. The result is a mic that captures the depth and body of a revered classic, with the crisp detail of a contemporary condenser.
Three Polar Patterns for Maximum Flexibility
To suit any recording need, the WA-47jr offers three selectable polar patterns: cardioid, omnidirectional and figure-8. Cardioid provides moderate side rejection for miking single sources. Omni captures room ambience along with the source for a natural, open sound. Figure-8 picks up sound from both front and rear, useful for overdubbing or recording two singers on one mic. With three patterns to choose from, the WA-47jr delivers elite flexibility in any studio application.
Rugged Build for Years of Use
As with all Warm Audio products, the WA-47jr is built to withstand years of regular use. Its microphone capsule and FET circuitry are housed within a durable nickel-plated brass body and mesh grille, with each mic handcrafted and tested in Austin, Texas. Now available at Guitar Center, a shockmount, hard mount and zippered carrying case are also included, providing everything needed to put the WA-47jr to work.
