Based on a legendary tube microphone with an iconic design, the Warm Audio WA-8000 large-diaphragm condenser delivers a wide-open, up-front tone that imbues vocals with a radio-ready sheen. To emulate the spirit of the WA-8000’s inspiration, Warm Audio’s design team developed a bespoke K67-style capsule and turned to new-old stock 6AU6 tubes and custom Lundahl transformers. Like the original, the WA-8000 sits in a custom-designed external heat sink assembly that draws heat away from the microphone’s tube and electronics to optimize performance. Warm Audio has stunned engineers at Sweetwater with their incredible attention to detail, which includes outfitting the WA-8000 with a premium GAC-7 cable from industry-leading cable manufacturers Gotham Audio in Switzerland. For pop, hip-hop, R&B, and other genres where vocals take center stage, the WA-8000 large-diaphragm condenser microphone from Warm Audio is a knockout choice!
