Warm Audio WA-87 R2 Nickel

In 2016 Warm Audio introduced one of the most talked-about 87-style FET condenser microphones. Since then Warm Audio has gone on to learn much more about microphone manufacturing and that experience drove Warm Audio to improve the WA-87 in tangible ways without having to raise the price, and the result is the new WA-87 R2. Now even closer to the sound, vibe and performance of the original 60s classic we all know and love. The new WA-87 R2 is bigger, bolder and just plain better!

Countless hours have been spent trying to get even closer to the sound of the vintage version - so the new WA-87 R2 uses top-quality components like a NOS Fairchild transistor and high-bandwidth polystyrene and film capacitors from Wima and Nichicon. The WA-87 R2 uses a custom-wound Cinemag USA output transformer with the new version providing a slightly increased output level and improved frequency response. The capsule was designed to the exact specifications of the ones found in the vintage mics. The result is an incredibly accurate sonic replica of arguably the widest-used studio microphone in popular recording history!

The WA-87 R2 works brilliantly on any source - vocals, drum overheads, guitars, piano, auxiliary percussion, brass, strings, and more.
