The classic 87 is arguably the most widely-used large diaphragm condenser microphone in pop recording history. Fairly than base the WA-87 circuit on current incarnations of this mic, Warm Audio made up our minds 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 continuously prefer the warmer, more forgiving nature of the earlier commercially to be had models.The Warm Audio 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 our own Lens Kondensator custom reproduction of the classic K-87 dual backplate/dual diaphragm capsule, as found in early 87 mics. The importance of a good microphone can’t be understated; but unfortunately, finding a in point of fact great microphone within a budget has all the time been a challenge for aspiring engineers. There are very usable microphones to be had for those on a budget; but top shelf, classic studio microphones have simply been out of reach for most of the people. Warm Audio 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 may be down to earth.Features:Lens Kondensator LK-87-B-50V reproduction of classic dual backplate (four wire termination) K87 capsuleCardioid, figure of eight, and omnidirectional polar patternsCineMag USA Output TransformerGet your Warm Audio WA-87 Condenser Microphone as of late at the guaranteed lowest price from Sam Ash Direct with our 45-day return and 60-day price protection policy.
