Warm Audio WA-84 Stereo Pair with Omni & Cardioid Capsules, Nickel
WA-84 Premium Stereo Package: Featuring Cardioid And Omni Capsules
The WA-84 is a small diaphragm condenser microphone based on classic microphone circuitry. The WA-84 Premium Stereo Package with Cardioid and Omni Capsules features a fully discrete Class A design that utilises CineMag USA transformers, polystyrene and Wima capacitors and Fairchild FETs. The WA-84 Premium Stereo Package with Cardioid and Omni Capsules 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 Premium Stereo package includes 2 microphones with Cardioid and Omni Capsules that have a very LARGE sound for their small size. These WA-84's uniquely use heavy Nickel CineMag transformers in their 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. 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.
The Capsules, The WA-84 Premium Stereo Package with Cardioid and Omni Capsules utilises custom vintage-style capsules designed to emulate classic componentry and design techniques. The WA-84's capsules are carefully manufactured by an Australian capsule supplier and are precisely reproduced to vintage specs. We are pleased to offer such high quality capsules in these microphones which allows us to nail the sonics of the most important component of any microphone kit.
The Transformers The WA-84 Premium Stereo Package with Cardioid and Omni Capsules utilises American made CineMag USA transformers in the microphone's signal paths. This boutique component 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 Circuits The WA-84 Premium Stereo Package with Cardioid and Omni Capsules supplies microphones that have fully discrete Class A circuits and utilise CineMag USA transformers, polystyrene and Wima capacitors and Fairchild FETs.
The Capacitors The WA-84 Premium Stereo Package with Cardioid and Omni Capsules proudly utilises Wima, polystyrene and tantalum through-hole capacitors throughout the whole circuit.
