Warm Audio WA-14 Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

Warm Audio set out to reproduce the classic brass CK12 capsule. The result? This gem of a multi-pattern condenser -- an homage to the vintage 414 microphone.
Based on the classic condenser microphone that has been used on countless hit records. The WA-14 utilizes classic circuit topology, including the coveted all-brass CK12 capsule design and a custom premium CineMag USA transformer. The WA-14 can be used on an array of sources, which includes: punchy warm and intimate lead vocals, aggressive guitars and heavy percussion. The WA-14 provides a realism and thickness that is true to the vintage sonics, but now at an affordable price.

Featuring a custom wound transformer by boutique CineMag USA transformers and an all discrete signal path featuring polystyrene, tantalum and WIMA capacitors. The WA-14 also features Warm Audio's high quality "Lens Kondensator" LK-12-B-60V capsule, which is a reproduction of the vintage, all-brass, edge-terminated CK12 dual backplate/dual membrane capsule.
