What We Think
The Warm Audio WA-8000 Tube Microphone is inspired by the iconic Sony C800, and is designed to bring a high quality tube mic to market that can reach a wider audience, and provide a sound that is in the vein of the C800. The WA-8000 provides a full range, high fidelity sound with elevated clarity that will help a vocal cut through a mix, and float on top with a smooth tube vibe. Whether recording vocals, or stringed acoustic instruments, the WA-8000 is a solid choice in and of itself. Being inspired by the C800 makes it that much cooler.
