Warm Audio WA-84 Small Diaphragm Microphone
The Warm Audio WA-84 Small Diaphragm Microphone is a cardioid, vintage-style, small diaphragm condenser microphone based on classic microphone circuit topology.
The Warm Audio WA-84 sports a fully discrete signal path, a CineMag USA transformer, Fairchild transistors and Wima capacitors. The WA-84 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.
The Warm Audio WA-84 has a very LARGE sound for its small size and uniquely uses a heavy Nickel CineMag signal transformer in its 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 and lower-cost manufacturing. When designing the WA-84, however, Warm Audio decided to go the extra mile and take the classic route by tackling a more boutique design known for its crystal clear, yet smooth, LARGE sound.
Warm Audio is proud to offer something special to the market-place by using large core transformer technology (CineMag USA) in a small diaphragm condenser microphone package. The result is a circuit that they feels sounds absolutely gorgeous and goes the extra mile in terms of signal integrity and smooth boutique tone.
