Warm Audio's Classic '87 FET Condenser, Better then Ever
Warm Audio's acclaimed compressors and preamps have famously upset the pro audio price/performance ratio. When Warm Audio turned its attention to microphones with the WA-87, they set a high target: one of the most iconic large-diaphragm, multi-pattern FET condenser mics in history. Now with the WA87 R2, Warm Audio have made their modern classic better than ever. Featuring a sleek new design with a rounded grille, optimized metalwork, and performance enhancements that include a genuine Cinemag transformer; the Warm Audio WA87 R2 is a workhorse mic that deserves a place in your mic locker.

Affordable modern incarnation of a legendary mic
Flash back to any top recording studio in the 1970s. You’ll see the venerable ’87 everywhere. On toms, overheads, guitar cabs, brass, congas, vocals — you name it. It’s from their vintage circuit designs — dating back a half century — and meticulous craftsmanship, that Warm Audio developed the rich sound of the WA87 R2. Stellar performance, top-shelf parts, and amazing value: that’s the Warm formula — and the WA87 R2 nails it.

Quality components make the Warm difference
Warm Audio doesn’t cut corners on components, but they do order parts and build in quantity, which keeps costs down and delivers amazing value. The WA87 R2 is assembled with premium all-discrete components such as NOS Fairchild transistors, WIMA/Nichicon capacitors, and a genuine USA-made Cinemag output transformer. The mic also features a custom reproduction of the renowned K-87 dual-diaphragm/dual-backplate capsule used in vintage ’87s. Premium parts and meticulous design deliver a superior-sounding microphone — one that doesn’t cost a fortune. Give the WA87 R2 an audition in your studio: you’ll hear what we’re talking about.
