OVERVIEW

A gorgeous sounding classic at an incredible price

The WA-47 is an all vacuum tube, large diaphragm, transformer balanced, multi-pattern, large condenser microphone, based on the classic ‘47 that has been used on countless hit records for the last 50+ years. The WA-47 is designed for pro studio, home studio, live, and broadcast applications and sounds great on vocals, acoustic/electric guitars, acoustic/electric bass, drums, piano, strings, brass/woodwind instruments, and an array of other sources. The classic ‘47 became extremely popular in the 1960’s and is now considered one of the greatest microphones ever made. The classic ‘47 is still widely used today in professional recording studios but have become extremely rare and expensive to acquire.

Designing the WA-47 to sound like the classic ‘47 was no easy task, especially considering that some of the vintage components are no longer available. Comparing to 2 different vintage ‘47 mics, Warm Audio found that they both sounded amazing but also sounded a little different from each other. These comparison tests became the benchmark for tailoring the WA-47's sound. The result, a gorgeous sounding classic at a price that’s reachable to more people than ever before. The WA-47 sounds nearly indistinguishable from the vintage ‘47’s that were auditioned on several sources.
