Warm Audio WA-8000

Bringing you the secret sauce of early 1990s hip hop and R&B productions comes Warm Audio's WA-8000, a classic tube condenser microphone with a bulky build that compliments its natural and airy sonic signature. This studio workhouse brings clarity and definition like no other thanks to its rigorously tested components, such as the Swedish-made Lundahl transformer. The WA-8000 centers its sound profile on the NOS 6AU6 tube, offering a wide dynamic range for capturing open-sounding, hi-fidelity vocals and acoustic instruments like no other microphone in its price range. The external tube mount and heat sink keeps temperatures optimal while also lowering self-noise, while a pristine, all-brass K67-style capsule captures all the subtlest details and nuances, perfect for capturing the intricacies of rhythmic and syllabic performances. The included PSU runs over 7-pin cabling to provide the perfect amount of power and get the most out of the WA-8000—no phantom power needed! Warm Audio's WA-8000 will surely make any vocal recording stand out in a mix, providing elite brilliance and clarity.
