Description

The WA-8000 is a nod to a very special large diaphragm tube condenser microphone that made its way onto countless platinum recordings starting in the early 90s and continuing today. The sound of this mic has delivered hits for artists ranging from Dr. Dre, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men and Brian McKnight to Eminem, Rihanna, Drake and more. The original stood out, boasting a natural and open top end, supremely clear midrange, and the ability to render detail in a vocal performance unlike most other mics on the planet. The WA-8000 rises to the occasion and delivers all that top end, beat by beat, at a price that will leave you hypnotized. The team at Warm audio did not take lightly the task of bringing a microphone with this legacy to market. It’s not enough to simply measure components and hit “print” - and that's why the WA-8000 has a custom K-67 inspired all-brass capsule, Lundahl Sweden transformer, NOS 6AU6 tube and the most premium 7-pin cable solution from Gotham Switzerland. As with all Warm Audio products, we focus heavily on quality components to ensure we release the best sounding product possible. The WA-8000 is packed with premium components that are carefully sourced from the top pro audio component suppliers in the world. The WA-8000 is easily recognizable by its open top end, crystal clear midrange, and an uncanny ability to capture every detail of acoustic sources. While most commonly known for modern R&B, Rap, and Hip-hop, the WA-8000 gives you that unmistakable “airy” and polished sound associated with some of the most hi-fidelity recordings of the 90’s and beyond. While vocals and voiceover work may immediately come to mind, the WA-8000 also makes an incredible room microphone for sessions demanding an unparalleled level of detail. Not exclusively a microphone for Rap/Hip-Hop and R&B, the WA-8000 is a true studio workhorse equipped to capture any voice or acoustic instrument with elite results.
