    Product Information

    The classic ‘87 is arguably the most widely-used large diaphragm condenser microphone in popular recording history. Rather than base their WA-87 circuit on current incarnations of this mic, Warm decided to closely follow the early circuit designs that date back nearly half a century.

    As is true with many classic microphones, engineers who have worked with different versions of these microphones often prefer the warmer, more forgiving nature of the earlier commercially available models. The desire to re-introduce the warm tone of this classic mic at an affordable price to an all new generation of recording artists was the inspiration behind the WA-87.

    The importance of a good microphone cannot be overstated; but unfortunately, finding a truly great microphone within a budget has always been challenging for aspiring engineers. There are very usable microphones available for those on a budget; but top shelf, classic studio microphones are financially out of reach for most people. Warm applied all that they know about bridging this barrier into crafting a microphone that reaches the level of quality and sonics mostly found only in top shelf products, yet sells for a price that is down to earth.

    The WA-87 features all discrete, premium components such as Fairchild FETs, tantalum, polystyrene, and WIMA film capacitors, and is rounded off with a CineMag USA output transformer. The WA-87 proudly uses the Warm Audio WA-87-B-50V custom capsule reproduction stylised after the classic K87 dual backplate/dual diaphragm capsule found in the early ‘87 microphones.

    When designing their first microphone Warm knew that the single greatest challenge would be to offer a capsule that was built to a high standard and priced in a range that every-day musicians and engineers could afford. They already knew where to find great microphone transformers, precision resistors, polystyrene, tantalum and WIMA film capacitors; but came to realise that a quality affordable microphone capsule that met the Warm specifications simply wasn’t out there. They knew they would have to develop their own line of capsules.

    The WA (Warm Audio) brand of capsule is the result of several years of research, a lifetime of listening, and a passion for great sound. Above all else, Warm Audio capsules came from the desire to give customers far more quality/value than what they are used to getting in an affordable microphone. Every Warm Audio capsule is made in the same small assembly house in a clean-room environment, and packaged in its own protective jewel case until the moment it is loaded into the microphone. Every capsule visually inspected and electrically tested for imperfections. Every capsule is also made with all brass parts (no teflon or other cost saving material), and is carefully skinned from the same supply of high purity NOS Mylar (PET film). Warm are confident that you will be just as pleased with their microphone capsules as they are to offer them, and that they will give you a lifetime of great recordings and enjoyment.
