  • 1Description

The nickel WA-87 Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone from Warm Audio 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. It can be used to capture audio in several environments such as recording studios, live stage, theaters, and is suitable for brass, woodwind, and string instruments.

Featuring a Lens Kondensator custom reproduction of the classic K-87 dual backplate/dual diaphragm capsule found in the early '87 mics, the WA-87 provides a selection of three polar patterns: Figure-8, omnidirectional, and cardioid. It has a 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response and comes with a shockmount, a hard mount, and a wood box for storage. In addition, it uses a 3-pin, 24k gold-plated XLR connector.

    Warm Audio WA-87 reviews

    WA-87 Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone (Nickel) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant's Well, first, my microphone experience is extensive, I have used all of the boutique mics, in my 40 plus years in the business, and I can tell you that this mic, take's a back seat to no mic, and when I say use I mean I have recorded my voice and others using telefunken elektroakustik u48, AKG's all of them, Neumann U87, 47, U89, the Sony C800G Pac, the Josephson C700S, and the Bock Audio 251, and now the Warm Audio Wa87, It gives me the same filling as the higher end mic's, when I first sang though it, the feeling was Wow, so now I am gonna have to buy another for over head pairs, you better get one before there all gone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the same animal I've used 87s since the 70s and loved them but really came to dislike the ai model. I wanted to add an original to my personal collection at a price that made sense but no luck, so I had to try the WA cause according to the specs and the online comparisons this might be close... and it is glorious! It's really the same animal and produces the same beautiful warm, clear and huge sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! WARM AUDIO WA-87 Studio Condenser Microphone I am very happy with my new WARM AUDIO WA-87 microphone. The WA-87 mic, elastic suspension and wooden storage box are all beautifully made. The WA-87 is NOT a NEUMANN U 87A. The U 87A has outstanding performance and an attractive shape that cannot be matched. However, for the money, the WA-87 is a real winner. It features a very good sound quality that will handle most studio applications in stride. I'm glad I bought it! The WA-87 is a wonderful mic to own!
