Warm Audio - 'WA-8000'
Tube Condenser Microphone

warm audio wa8000

True Reproduction Of A Modern-ClassicThe Warm Audio WA-8000 is influenced by an incredibly revolutionary large diaphragm tube condenser microphone that made its way onto multiple platinum recordings starting from the early 90s onwards. The sound of this microphone has delivered hits for artists such as Dr. Dre, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men and Brian McKnight to Eminem, Rihanna, Drake and more.

The original microphone was unique from everything else in its class, featuring a natural and open top end, outstandingly clear midrange, with the ability to render detail in a vocal performance unlike most other mics available. The WA-8000 lives up the occasion and provides all the top end, beat by beat, at a price that will leave you won’t believe.

True To The Legacy

True To The SoundWarm Audio worked tirelessly with task of bringing a microphone with this legacy to market. It’s not a task simple enough just to copy the components, which is why the WA-8000 features a custom K-67 inspired all-brass capsule, Lundahl Sweden transformer, NOS 6AU6 tube and the most premium 7-pin cable solution from Gotham Switzerland.

Just like all Warm Audio products, they focus heavily on quality components to make sure the best sounding product possible is released. The WA-8000 is full of premium components that are carefully sourced from the top pro audio component suppliers in the world.

Future Hits

Renowned SoundThe WA-8000 is easy to recognize with its open top end, crystal clear midrange, and an incredible ability to capture every nuance of acoustic sources. Although it’s commonly known for modern R&B, Rap, and Hip-hop, the WA-8000 gives you that unmistakable “airy” and polished sound, often found with some of the most hi-fidelity recordings from the 90’s onwards.

Vocals and voiceover work may be the first to come to mind, the WA-8000 also works as an incredible room microphone for sessions that require an unparalleled amount of detail. Not just a microphone for Rap/Hip-Hop and R&B, the WA-8000 is a true studio workhorse capable of capturing any voice or acoustic instrument with incredible results.

A Look Inside

Custom K-67 Inspired All-Brass CapsuleFeaturing an upgraded all-brass, custom K-67 inspired capsule coupled with the original circuit design, the WA-8000 is capable of achieving true-to-spec results. The capsule is a vital part of the WA-8000’s ability to capture every subtle detail of vocal and acoustic performances.

Transformer From Lundahl SwedenPaired by a true-to-spec capsule and circuit design with a large-core transformer, custom made for the WA-8000 from Lundahl in Sweden, the transformer selection plays an important role in the open top end and huge soundscape that listeners quickly recognize when selecting the WA-8000 to capture an intricate performance.

Rigorously Tested Tube And Cooling SystemThe WA-8000 features a NOS (New Old Stock) 6AU6 vacuum tube to replicate the tonal character of the original. Together with the tube, is a custom-designed heat sink that is crucial in reducing heat inside the mic, allowing the tube to operate at optimal temperature. When the tube can operate without overheating, self-noise and distortion virtually disappear, adding to the mic’s incredibly clean sonic character.

Premium Cable From Gotham SwitzerlandOften overlooked, the cable connecting a tube microphone to its power supply is a critical part of the signal chain. The WA-8000 uses a custom GAC-7 7-pin cable from Gotham, Switzerland. The design and build quality of this cable enhances top end presence and the overall size of the recorded image in the stereo field by reducing phase shift and the parasitic effect often found in poorly quality cables.
