First Look: Warm Audio WA-47F FET Microphone
By Front End Audio on Jun 23rd 2022
Warm Audio has just released the new Warm Audio WA-47F Microphone! The WA-47F is Warm Audio's recreation of a high-SPL, low noise classic microphone that is celebrated as a "secret weapon" across world class studios. The original U47 FET was released in 1969 and gained massive popularity for it's ability to handle fast transients and high SPLs. The high SPL handling especially for a condenser mic, meant that engineers could make kick drums sound huge and it meant that engineers no longer had to compromise between volume and detail with certain sources.
We just received our first batch of the Warm Audio WA-47F Microphones! Check out our new "Out of the Box" video!
The Warm Audio WA-47F Microphone brings excellent sonic versatility and the uncanny ability to handle high SPLs just like the original. And the custom tuned frequency response helps add a pristine edge to solo vocals that need to stand out. This microphone will shine on lead vocals, outside kick drum, guitar and bass cabinets and upright bass. A pair of these microphones could be great for drum room microphones!
The new Warm Audio WA-47F Microphone is available NOW at Front End Audio! If you have any questions about this microphone, give us a call! We'll be happy to assist :)
