Warm Audio WA-CLASSIC Condenser Microphone

Classic FET microphones have been used on countless hit records since the 1960’s. The WA-Classic is a limited edition Warm Audio microphone designed after the best of them and provides a sonic signature heard on countless hit records. The desire to re-introduce this warm FET microphone technology at an affordable price was the inspiration behind the WA-Classic.

Quality Components Make A Better Mic The WA-Classic features all discrete, premium components such as Fairchild FETs, tantalum, polystyrene, and WIMA film capacitors, and is rounded off with a CineMag USA output transformer.

The WA-Classic proudly uses our own Warm Audio custom capsule reproduction stylised after classic capsule technology and is made by an Australian capsule manufacturer.

Born Out Of Need When designing the WA-Classic we knew that the single greatest challenge would be to offer a capsule that was built to a high standard and priced in a range that every-day musicians and engineers could afford. We already knew where to find great microphone transformers, precision resistors, polystyrene, tantalum and WIMA film capacitors; but we came to realize that a quality affordable microphone capsule that met our specifications simply wasn’t out there. We knew we would have to develop our own line of capsules.

The WA (Warm Audio) brand of capsule is the result of several years of research, a lifetime of listening, and a passion for great sound. Above all else, Warm Audio capsules came from the desire to give customers far more quality/value than what they are used to getting in an affordable microphone. Every Warm Audio capsule is made in the same small assembly house in a clean-room environment and packaged in its own protective jewel case until the moment it is loaded into the microphone. Every capsule is visually inspected and electrically tested for imperfections. Every capsule is carefully skinned from the same supply of high purity NOS Mylar (PET film). We are confident that you will be just as pleased with our microphone capsules as we are to offer them and that they will give you a lifetime of great recordings and enjoyment.
