Warm Audio WA-87 R2 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone (Nickel)

The Warm Audio WA-87 R2 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone uses top-quality components like a NOS Fairchild transistor and high-bandwidth polystyrene and film capacitors from Wima. The WA-87 R2 uses a custom-wound Cinemag USA output transformer like the original WA-87 did, with the new version providing a slightly increased output level and improved frequency response. The WA-87 R2 uses the same capsule the WA-87 uses, which 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!

Incredible Recording Capabilities

Just like the vintage microphone, the WA-87 R2 excels at recording virtually anything. Three polar patterns (Cardioid, Omni, and Figure 8) make sure you’re covered for a wide variety of applications, and an 80Hz high pass filter reduces low-frequency rumble if needed. The switchable -10dB pad comes in handy when you want to record extremely loud sources and not overload the internal electronics.

Ideal Usage

The WA-87 R2 works brilliantly on vocals, drum overheads, guitars, piano, auxiliary percussion, brass, strings, and more. Not only that, it’s the same price as the original WA-87, so you can afford to have several in your mic locker!

Stunning In Sound and Appearance

The WA-87 R2 is now encased in a heavier, stronger, and larger nickel-plated brass body and the new rounded head basket shape adds additional space around the capsule for a more pleasing sonic signature. With authentic vintage warmth and a smooth detailed top end, this mic performs on par with microphones costing five times as much or more. No matter what else you’ve got in your mic locker, the WA-87 R2 is sure to become one of your favorite go-to microphones!
