Warm Audio WA-8000 Large-Diaphragm Tube Condenser Microphone

From the iconic heat sink, to the NOS tube, to the superbly detailed sound, Warm Audio recreated a true modern-classic condenser for a fraction of the price.
The Warm Audio WA-8000 tube condenser microphone is inspired by a highly sought-after and revered design of the early 1990s. The WA-8000 lives up to this sonic legacy which continues to foster die-hard fans to this day.

The WA-8000 boasts a natural, open top end, supremely clear midrange, and the ability to render detail in a vocal performance unlike most other mics on the planet, let alone in this price range. Engineered true to spec, the WA-8000 meets all of the critical specifications of the original, giving you the true sound of modern R&B and hip-hop at an unprecedented value. Includes hard carrying case for all components.
