Warm Audio - WA-87 R2 Condenser Microphone


An Updated & Upgraded ClassicIn 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!

Excellent Components Make Excellent Microphones

Warm Audio’s WA-87 R2 Black is comprised of exceptional components, not often found in mic’s found in this price range. For example, Fairchild’s FET’s, tantalum, polystyrene and WIMA film capacitors, topped off with a CineMag USA output transformer. WA’s WA-87 R2 Black uses it’s own WA-87-B-50V custom capsule styled on the K87 dual backplate/dual diaphragm capsule found in the much sought after classic 87 microphones.


What Can The WA-87 R2 Do For You?

In every studio, you should find a pair (if not more) of top drawer large-diaphragm condenser microphones. Warm Audio’s WA-87 R2 Black takes inspiration from one of the most iconic. It can turn it’s hand to almost anything, and always produce world beating results. Make a vocal part stand out in the mix, make those floors tom’s shake the room.


Adding the WA’s 87 will bring extra ‘room’ to your mix to complement a dynamic mic on a guitar cab. It is a perfect choice woodwind instruments, string instruments. The high pass filter can be usefully employed in eliminating any unwanted low-end frequencies. What’s more, the 3 polar patterns, cardioid, figure of 8 and omni ensure that Warm Audio’s WA-87-B is exponentially versatile.
