A legendary mic, reborn.

Faithfully recreating one of the most in-demand, balanced and natural-sounding tube condenser microphones ever made, the Warm Audio WA-CX12 is ideal for capturing virtually any sound source with extreme accuracy. With decades of use in the world’s top studios and by some of the world’s greatest engineers and artists, the original microphone stood out as open, airy and natural. Matching the classic, CK12-style capsule with a custom, large-core TAB-Funkenwerk USA output transformer helps the CX12 capture musical bass, organic mids and polished high end. No-compromise components and elite build quality, mean the WA-CX12 delivers an iconic sound that belongs in every mic locker. It includes a custom hardcase.

  • Custom, solid brass CK12-style capsule and TAB-Funkenwerk USA output transformer
  • nine polar patterns, including cardioid, omnidirectional and figure-8 patterns plus six intermediate stages
