Product Overview

In 2016, Warm Audio introduced one of the most talked-about 87-style FET condenser microphones in the industry with the release of the WA-87, it made the looks and authentic vintage sonics of this style of mic affordable to customers for the very first time. Simply put, the release of the WA-87 changed the industry's perception of what could be achieved at an affordable price.

Based on classic 60s circuitry, the WA-87's rich sound became a favorite of countless producers, engineers, and home recordists everywhere. It was our first microphone and a verifiable hit, and in recent years we've followed it with many other successful and ground-breaking designs.

Since the release of the WA-87 in 2016 Warm Audio learned a bunch more about microphone manufacturing, and have proven that they can beat the industry's quality expectations at affordable prices. That experience drove them to see if they could improve the WA-87 in tangible ways without having to raise the price, and the result is the new WA-87 R2 (Revision 2). Warm Audio have used everything they learned about recreating vintage microphones in the last five years to bring it even closer to the sound, vibe and performance of the original 60s classic we all know and love. T new WA-87 R2 is bigger, bolder and just plain better!


A Faithful Reproduction With Top-Shelf Components
The WA-87 is based on a classic 60s circuit that is largely considered to be one of the best studio microphones ever designed. Countless hours were spent trying to get even closer to the sound of the vintage version than we had with the WA-87, so the new WA-87 R2 uses top-quality components such as a NOS Fairchild transistor and high-bandwidth polystyrene and film capacitors from Wima. The WA-87 R2 uses a custom-wound Cinemag USA output transformer like the original WA-87 did, with the new version delivering a slightly increased output level and improved frequency response. The same capsule from the WA-87 is used, which was designed to the exact specifications of the ones found in the vintage mics. The result is an incredibly true sonic replica of arguably the widest-used studio microphone in popular recording history!

The Most Versatile Mic In Your Collection
As with the vintage microphone, the WA-87 R2 exceeds at recording pretty much anything. Three polar patterns (cardioid, omni, and figure 8) make sure you're covered for a wide range of applications, and an 80Hz high pass filter reduces low-frequency rumble if needed. The switchable -10dB pad comes in handy when you want to record extremely loud sources and not overload the internal electronics.

The WA-87 R2 works incredibly on vocals, drum overheads, guitars, piano, auxiliary percussion, brass, strings, and more. It is also the same price as the original WA-87, so you can afford to have several in your mic arsenal!
