Here's What Warm Audio Say About the WA-84

Sound Like A Legend

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 it’s small size and uniquely uses a heavy Nickel CineMag transformer in it’s 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 it’s it’s 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.

A Look Inside The WA-84

The Capsule

The WA-84 utilizes a custom vintage-style capsule designed to emulate classic componentry and design techniques.  The WA-84’s capsule is carefully manufactured by an Australian capsule supplier and is precisely reproduced to vintage specs.  We are pleased to offer such a high quality capsule in this microphone which allows us to nail the sonics of the most important component of any microphone.

The Circuit

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 Transformer

The WA-84 utilizes an American made CineMag USA transformer that contributes to the legendary creamy smooth top-end and the BEEFY mid to bottom-end one would hope to get from an 84-style small diaphragm condenser microphone.

The Capacitors

The WA-84 proudly utilizes Wima, polystyrene and tantalum through-hole capacitors throughout.
