Warm Audio WA12 MkII Microphone Preamp! Black

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 opitmal 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.

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.
