Introducing the Warm Audio WA-87 R2 FET Condenser Microphone: Your Ultimate Recording Companion
Experience the authentic sound of one of the greatest studio microphones ever designed with the Warm Audio WA-87 R2. This microphone is a faithful reproduction of the original hitmaker from the late-60s, known for its signature smooth bass and midrange and pristine top end. From Paul McCartney to Ed Sheeran, this mic has been used by the best in the business to create countless hits.
The WA-87 R2 features top-quality components, including a NOS Fairchild transistor and high-bandwidth polystyrene and film capacitors from Wima. The custom-wound Cinemag USA output transformer is the centerpiece of this mic and delivers a true-to-original output level and frequency response, making it a popular choice in world-class recording facilities.
With a capsule designed to the exact specifications of the original K87-style unit found in the best sounding vintage mics from 1968-1972, the WA-87 R2 captures legendary sound for vocals and beyond. Its signature 7-10kHz bump adds a pristine, radio-friendly edge to lead vocals and any source that needs to stand out in a professional mix. With three polar patterns (cardioid, omni, and figure 8), this mic provides versatility and flexibility for any application you encounter in the professional or home studio.
The WA-87 R2 is not just for vocals. It excels at recording acoustic guitar, guitar cabinets, and drum overheads with the same pristine detail found in the original. The 80Hz high pass filter reduces low-frequency rumble to save you from EQ and mixing headaches, while the switchable -10dB pad is crucial for recording extremely loud sources without overloading the internal electronics.
This microphone has been updated and upgraded from its predecessor, the highly acclaimed WA-87, to bring you even closer to the sound, vibe, and performance of the original 60s classic. With its premium components, elite build quality, and superior sound, the WA-87 R2 is a must-have for any serious recording enthusiast.
The WA-87 R2 is encased in an ultra-durable nickel-plated brass body with an updated headbasket shape adding additional space around the capsule. Every single WA-87 R2 is meticulously hand-inspected at Warm HQ in Austin, TX by real musicians and engineers with a passion for superior sound.

Friendly and accommodating staff. Great products. They offer discounts to churches (there’s a minimum purchase value). Really does cater to all your audiovisual needs. I’ll surely shop there again.

Quality items at affordable prices with knowledgeable and helpful staff. If what you are looking for is available here it doesn't make sense importing through a freight forwarder.

I've bought from them in the past on a few occasions and it's always been a good experience. I recently made a purchase and happened to have a manufacturer issue. CET immediately replaced the item with the least inconvenience to myself. When buying these types of equipment, it really is best to use a local and reliable supplier and CET is hands down my choice.Plus the staff are always helpful and respectable. Good job folks.
