Warm Audio - WA87 Condenser Microphone


A Classic Made Affordable It's hard to disagree that the classic ’87 is the most popular and widely used large diaphragm condenser mic in popular recording history. However, Warm Audio have decided that rather than base the WA-87’s circuitry on modern day versions of this mic, WA have admirably decided to take inspiration from the original circuits, some of which date back nearly 50 years.

Warm Audio did their research before developing the WA-87. When working with classic microphones, experienced engineers tend to prefer the warmer and more forgiving characteristics of the classic, commercially available microphones found yesteryear. This was the driving force behind WA’s development of a classic mic, able to capture the warm tone’s engineers wished for.

Pro level performance, top drawer components, at an incredible price.

Excellent Components Make Excellent Microphones

Warm Audio’s WA-87 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 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 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 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.
