 WA-84ST-OC  WARM AUDIO 

 

 Stereo Pair Omni & Cardiod Capsule Condenser Microphones 

 



This WA-84 Stereo Pair with Omni and Cardioid Capsules package contains 4 custom vintage-style capsules that emulate classic component design techniques. 2 of the capsules included are cardioid directional, and the other 2 are omni directional. The WA-84 capsules are carefully manufactured by an Australian capsule supplier and are precisely reproduced to vintage specifications. We are pleased to offer such high-quality capsules in this microphone package allowing us to nail the sonics of the most important component to any microphone's sound.

 

The WA-84 is a small diaphragm condenser microphone based on classic microphone circuitry. The WA-84 is a fully discrete Class A design that utilizes a CineMag USA transformer, polystyrene and Wima capacitors and a Fairchild FET. The WA-84 is designed for pro studio, home studio, live, and broadcast applications and sounds great on a variety of instruments and sources, such as; acoustic/electric guitars, acoustic/electric bass, drums, piano, strings, brass & woodwind instruments, and an array of other sources.

Large Sound, Small Size

The WA-84 has a very LARGE sound for its small size and uniquely uses a heavy Nickel CineMag transformer in its signal path to warm up and ENLARGE sound sources. Small diaphragm condenser microphones have widely moved to transformer-less technology in recent years for ease of design and a lower-cost manufacturing process. When designing the WA-84 we chose to go the extra mile and tackle a more boutique design known for its crystal clear, yet smooth, LARGE sound.


Boutique Tone

We are proud to offer something special to the market-place by using large core transformer technology (CineMag USA) in a small diaphragm condenser microphone package. The result is a circuit that we feel sounds absolutely gorgeous and goes the extra mile in terms of signal integrity and smooth boutique tone.
