Overview

Warm Audio recording bundle with mic pre, condenser mic and XLR cable.

This Warm Audio recording bundle features the WA12 MKII mic pre, WA-8000 condenser microphone, as well as the Premier 15' XLR cable, for an excellent foundation to any studio.

WA12 MKII Mic Pre

If you are looking for a preamp to improve and shape your signal you will most definitely love the WA12 MKII mic pre. The WA12 MKII mic pre is designed to transform plain instruments and vocals into an exciting tone. If your mixes lack depth, struggle to sound alive, or are just missing that professional touch you’ve always wanted, there is a good chance you will love the WA12 MKII Mic Pre. The WA12 MKII Mic Pre is a completely discrete, high voltage, dual-transformer microphone preamplifier design with high gain (+71dB), high headroom, low noise and exciting sonic performance–great for all types of recording applications. A high-quality mic preamp is one of the most critical pieces needed to achieve the elusive ‘larger than life’ sound, and the WA12 MKII Mic Pre is more than capable of delivering.

The WA12 MKII mic pre is based around a discrete op-amp, the X731, which is a reproduction of the vintage classic Melcor 1731, considered by some to be the warmer predecessor to the modern 2520-style op-amp. The X731 can achieve vibrant, clean and lifelike tones; but can also be driven into mild saturation at much higher gain levels. The effects can be subtle, but very pleasing to the ear. The WA12 MKII Mic Pre Black can also accept any discrete op-amp on the market which conforms to the +/-16V, 2520 pinout standard.

WA-8000 Large-Diaphragm Tube Condenser Microphone

The inspiration for this Warm Audio tube condenser mic is a highly sought-after and revered design of the early 1990s. The WA-8000 lives up to the sonic legacy that continues to foster die-hard fans to this day. It boasts a natural, open top end, supremely clear midrange and the ability to render detail in a vocal performance unlike most other mics on the planet.

Engineered true to spec, the WA-8000 meets all the critical specifications of the original, giving you the genuine sound of modern R&B and hip-hop for an unprecedented value.

XLR Microphone Cable 15'

The Premier XLR Cables from Warm Audio offer advanced features like gold-plated connectors, StarQuad construction, Double-Reussen shielding and a braided outer wrap for optimal durability. StarQuad construction achieves greater protection from induced noise than traditional XLR cables by using five cores instead of three, and Double-Reussen shielding uses two separate copper shields wrapped in a contrary direction to create the strongest resistance to EMI available.
