Tube Condenser Microphone
Warm Audio - 'WA-67'

Warm Audio - WA67

A Legend Reborn - again Warm Audio’s original ’67 is undoubtedly one of the most highly sought-after and widely-used studio mics of it’s time, playing an integral part in the recording of some of the most popular songs of the modern era – tracks from bands such as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Temptations and Nirvana! The original run of mics are still highly prized to collectors and enthusiasts to this day, but often command a prices upwards of £8k!

Fortunately, Warm Audio has made things a bit more reachable and realistic for us, with the release of hotly anticipated ‘WA-67’! Built around an EF86 pentode tube and featuring the same rich and warm tone of the original, the new ‘WA-67’ shines in recording just about anything! The WA-67 is sure to become your mic of choice for tracking vocals, guitars, toms, overheads, pianos, brass and strings!

The Sound, Vibe and Soul of The Original ’67

Warm Audio - WA67

premium boutique componentsThe guys at Warm Audio have always been passionate about great studio tools. This means, in short, that Warm Audio don’t make ‘look-alike’ gear which doesn’t deliver sonically and they invest considerable time and effort to get as close as possible to both the heart and the soul of the original design.

Warm Audio’s engineers clearly went to great lengths to replicate the discrete circuit of the original microphone, using boutique components throughout to ensure that nothing was to get in the way of real tube magic. The sound, vibe and soul of the original ’67 is recreated in magnificent detail in the new WA-67.

The Capsule: The Heart Of A Microphone

Warm Audio - WA67

a faithful replication of the originalEven if you stuff a microphone full of premium components, if the capsule isn’t right, nothing is - it’s that critical. Knowing this, Warm Audio’s engineers went to huge lengths to replicate the capsule from the original ’67, making sure that the WA-67 performs the same way, has the same frequency response and contributes to the same ‘chewy’ character as the original.

That meant not only ensuring that the hole pattern was identical, but they also made sure to craft the entire assembly out of brass (including the mounting rings) just like the original design. It takes more time and it’s more expensive than using multiple types of material, but they felt that it was critical to go the extra mile on this microphone. The results speak for themselves - the WA-67 sounds out of this world. Hard work pays off!

100% Premium Components and Circuitry

Warm Audio - WA67

ef-86 tubeThe ‘EF-86’ tube is infamous in the industry for having characteristics that are consistently flattering to audio sources, and it’s one of the reasons why the original ’67 microphone remains sought after (and why some modern audio manufacturers use it in their own hyper-expensive microphones and preamps). Warm Audio knew that it was critical to get absolutely right in the WA-67, and the results speak for themselves.

Going even further, in order to accentuate and complement the custom capsule and EF86 tube, Warm Audio’s engineers used top-shelf components to complete their version of the original circuit. They used high-bandwidth polystyrene capacitors, as well as boutique polypropylene caps from Wima and a large output capacitor from Solen. Just as important in a tube design, Warm Audio also used a custom large-core transformer from Lundahl in Sweden, which plays a significant role in the buttery smooth high frequency response and huge three-dimensional sound of the WA-67. The microphone is also encased in a beautiful nickel-plated brass body and headbasket, which provides strength, additional shielding from extraneous handling noise and the ultimate in audio performance.

Last but not certainly not least, the quality of the 7-pin cable that connects a tube mic to its power supply is also of upmost importance - it carries both audio signals and voltage for the tube on different pins, which means that it plays an integral role in the performance of the microphone. That’s why Warm Audio partnered with high-end manufacturer Gotham Audio of Switzerland to use their high-end GAC-7 cable with the WA-67. This special cable is integral to the sound and performance of the microphone, and adds the finishing touch to the spectacular WA-67 system.
